Clean up with Cloth

Christina Huh Nov 25, 2010

Paper napkins and towels are often made from virgin forests. If you don’t feel like wiping your face or counter with ancient trees, opt instead for organic cotton or hemp cleaning wipes. Or reuse an old shirt or jeans for scrubbing purposes.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
