Question #10: Which is Greener? Cloth napkins or linen napkins
Answer: Linen napkins
Cloth napkins, even when you factor in running an extra load of laundry, have about half the impact of paper napkins, provided that you get more than one use out of each napkin. But do you know that the fabric counts? Linen, made from the fibers of the flax plant, is an Eco-friendlier choice than cotton, which is highly irrigated and heavily sprayed.
