This price tag doesn’t seem like much after you crunch the numbers of what an allergy season will cost a family in disposable tissues or the fact an average household will spend $30,000 on tissues during their life span.
For those light sniffles, drips, tears, or sweaty occasions – why reach for a virgin tree produced, bleached piece of disposable tissue? Your household can help save thousands of virgin trees by putting one of these 100% organic cotton hanky’s in your pocket or lunch box. Why not complete your child’s litterless lunchbox with this Hank&Cheef or use at the dinner table for those sloppy pasta nights? Kids are attracted to these fun prints and love learning about how using them helps the planet. And in the case of my boys, they get to feel just like ‘Nono’ when they reach into their pocket and take care of any drips. <smile> What’s old is new again…but this time the ‘old hanky’ is just plain hip!
