Disposable Sheets? Really?

Don’t we have enough disposable stuff already?  Disposable napkins (instead of cloth), paper “towels” instead of washable old dishcloths, Starbucks-style coffee “cups,” plastic water bottles? When car parts are found in the stomachs of whales and they’re gorging on plastic, it’s time to stop this horrible disposable thing we humans do.

But no!  Now we have — wait for it — disposable bed sheets!  Yes, we can now buy “luxury disposable sheets” that are “so easy” they can be used “for weeks” and when they need to be changed, we “simply” discard or compost them.

It’s so easy!

Gawd.

    I am glad to see you back, and I totally agree with your stand here

    What I want to know is are they compostable? This is a horrid idea.

    That’ll solve the “folding the fitted sheet” problem. LOL j/k

    That’s true…especially the bottom sheet!

    These are some of the things we will have to stop doing if we are going to slow climate change.
