Did you know that switching from paper to cloth napkins could save you $1.68 a week. Yep, each paper napkin costs about two cents. This simple modification will not only save trees, but also make your kitchen table prettier.

My new favorite napkin is from Fabkins. Started by No. California moms Joyce Raffo and Paige Rodgers, Fabkins are fabric napkins designed just for kids. Fabkins come in six adorable prints and colors. Little dudes will dig the Beach Bound collection, and faerie princesses will adore the Garden Friends. Fabkins ship in packs of five and cost $22.95. These 100% cotton table accents teach environmental awareness while making mealtime more fun. They also make a great party accessory at your next birthday bash.

Another find is the kitchenware from Recycline. Called Preserve, these kitchen tools look terrific and are absolutely functional. Made from old Stoneyfield Farms Yogurt containers, Preserve has remolded the fabric into colanders, cutting boards and food storage containers. I love the bright colors and sturdy construction and am more than happy to pay a bit more to keep the plastic from piling up at the landfill. Find them at Whole Foods.
