It is possible to avoid paper towels while on vacation. Even in Las Vegas.
I spent the days surrounding my 35 th birthday in Las Vegas, the land of a thousand straws. I smartened up this time and brought a micro-fiber cloth to prevent paper towel use. My plan worked. No paper towels used!
On a visit to the Bellagio hotel, I was pleased to see that they offered real hand towels along with the traditional paper towels. Guess what I chose!
I also tried to avoid straws this trip. It was really hard. The first day I ended up with only three. The rest of the days were not as successful. I guess I’ll will have to try better next visit!
So now you all know where I was and why I wasn’t posting. Now that I am back I promise to post more often about topics I’m passionate about. My co-workers claim that is food, recycling, Las Vegas and I always add – Skeeball. I love me some Skeeball.
