Counting on …day 87 

7th February 2022

Paper handkerchiefs cannot be recycled, even though they are made of paper. They can be composted and their plastic wrapper can be recycled with other soft plastics. But a  better option is to use cotton handkerchiefs. These can be washed and reused and have a life time that can be multi generational. I am still using some fine lawn ones that belonged  to my mother-in-law.
