How to avoid paper towels in Las Vegas

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.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. Happy birthday. I find that being away from home makes avoiding those things I don’t want to use much harder. It looks like you did well.
