Of the three daily meals, I find that dinner is the only meal that I tend to set the table for. For me it's the most formal meal of the day and the one I most often share with others. I like to use cloth napkins at dinner, mostly because there's less waste and they add a special feeling to the table. What about you?
Cloth napkins are considered more eco-friendly than paper, especially if you have a method to keep track of them so that they can be reused several times before washing. There are many ways to do this, including labeling the napkin rings or assigning a specific color or pattern to each household member. Cloth napkins are easy to score at thrift stores, too.
