One thing I've always done with my girls is have them use a Dixie cup when brushing their teeth so that the water doesn't keep running. I do that myself and I always kind of thought we were being good citizen of Earth. Until today. So, if we use a paper dixie cup and don't let the water run, then we throw away the paper dixie cup and it goes into a landfill, is that ecofriendly?!? A dilemma I never thought I'd have. By saving a resource (water) am I overusing another (trees).
What are your thoughts??
