When it comes to tissues, napkins and paper towels, what do you do with them after they’ve been used? The good news is that used paper products like napkins and towels are compostable; they just need to be layered as “brown” matter in a compost bin with “green” material like kitchen trimmings and grass clippings. But don’t forget the paperboard boxes and tubes these items are packaged with; they can be added to paperboard recycling. And even the plastic film on the outside of paper towels can be recycled in the same bin as plastic shopping bags at the store.
