We’re all trying to be more conscious of the environment these days, and that doesn’t exclude what we use to wipe our mouths, clean messy kitchen counters or set our dinner plates on. Using linens made of organic cotton — cotton grown without use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers — reduces the impact of regular cotton crops by investing in a more sustainable material that helps build diverse agriculture, according to the Organic Trade Association.
Here are some examples of how you can keep your kitchen clean in a stylish, yet green, way.
