Over 241 million Americans use paper napkins each year. That’s a lot of waste, not to mention a lot of fallen trees. If you’re looking for more ways to go green, consider switching to linen napkins.

DWYM Fun Fact

Depending on where you live, you may refer to a napkin as a napkin, or as a face towel, cloth or serviette. The actual word “napkin,” however comes from the French word “nape,” which means towel. Although napkins today are made from either cloth or paper, they were first created by the Spartans from dough.

The napkin wasn’t just used to wipe dirty hands and faces during meals. It was also a symbol that revealed the rank of servers. Those who held a higher rank placed a napkin over their left shoulders, while servants who were lower on the totem pole folded their napkins and placed them lengthwise over their left arms.
