I’m so proud of myself – apparently I am an eco-warrior

Ecosalon has a list of the top 20 things we throw away, but shouldn’t. I won’t bore you with the details, but anyone who is as poor as I am might look at this list and say, “seriously?”

I’ll admit to using paper-towels because my roomie got a metric ass-ton of them for free from his mother. I’m not buying bar rags until they’re gone. That was my plan, anyway, though because I don’t like spending money on shit like that. Being single leads me to this novelty idea:

Napkins = Paper Towels = Counter Wipes = Tissue
or, given more sensitive noses:
Toilet Paper = Tissue

The only notable thing on the list was reusable coffee-filters. I had never heard of such a thing… I mean, you can buy them in boxes of 200 for $5. Which means I might buy two boxes in any given year. I generally drink coffee every day, but I don’t always make coffee every day (there is a chic little hippie coffee shop downstairs that has great coffee).

Also, I like getting plastic bags from the grocery store – they make nice trash bags. Most of the rest of the list (Cotton Balls, Swiffer pads, Baby Wipes) don’t apply to me. Maybe they will one day.

I am no environmentalist, so it occurs to me that most people are just lazy and wasteful and enviro-nuts are pretentious. Also, not buying stuff puts people out of work. Why do you hate America, EcoSalon?
