Changing habits | Letter

Thank you for including the waste reduction article in the May 10 issue.

I think we have to take many suggestions one step further and break down simple things every individual can do to make changing their habits easier, one at a time.

For example, when I decided to stop using paper napkins at home, I had to make sure I had an ample supply of cloth (not fancy) napkins we could grab for meals. And allow for additional laundry. Once I only had cloth available, that’s what we used. I now have enough for all our summer get-togethers, etc. They can be picked up inexpensively at garage sales and thrift stores and for free.

If there was a suggestion per month with specifics, people might be more likely to make the changes.

It’s worked for me.
