KNIT YOUR OWN DISHCLOTH

Jeg prøver, som nævnt tidligere herinde, at gøre min part i, ikke at skade jorden for meget. Men en ting jeg overhovedet ikke havde tænkt over, før en veninde nævnte det – var hvor skadelige at normale engangskarklude var for miljøet. Dette havde jeg slet, slet ikke skænket en tanke. Men, engangskarklude indeholder plastik, og dette skylles enten ud, kommer til at hænge i luften, eller ryger i kloakken eller i maden (læs selv mere om det her).

Men man kan vælge at gøre brug af nogle strikkede karklude, og dermed ikke skade miljøet.
Dog kan jeg ikke selv prale af at kunne strikke, men så er det jo skønt, at jeg er så heldig både at have en farmor og en svigermor som har strikket mig både karklude og viskestykker! Så dem er vi begyndt at bruge herhjemme istedet for.
Så hør endelig en du kender om de vil strikke dig nogle karklude, eller måske du selv kan strikke dem, og gør en lille ekstra ting for miljøet. Som man siger “mange bække små gør en stor å“, det samme gælder alle de små ting du gør i din hverdag.

Vidste du det med at engangskludene var skadelige for miljøet? Og er der andre ting som man ikke lige tænker over, som man burde udskifte i sit hjem? Kom endelig med forslag!

As mentioned earlier in here, I try to do my part in not hurting the planet too much. But one thing I had never thought of before as being damaging, before a friend mentioned it – is how damaging once-use dishcloths are for the environment. I had never thought of this before. But, these dishcloths contain plastic, which will either be flushed out, hang in the air, go down the drain or into our food.

But you can choose to use some knitted dishcloths and thereby not harm the environment. But I cannot brag about being very good at knitting, but then it’s good that I’m so lucky to have both a grandma and a mother-in-law which have knitted me both dishcloths and dish towels! So those we have started used instead.
So go and ask someone you know if they will knit you a dishcloth, or maybe you can knit it yourself, and thereby do a little extra thing for the environment. Remember a lot of small good actions, ends up resulting in something bigger. It’s the small things you do everyday that makes a different.

Did you know that the one-time dishcloths were harmful for the environment? And is there any other thing that you should think about changing in your home? Please comment if you know about anything!

    Ja, jeg har heldigvis også en mor som er frisk på at strikke den slags – det er luksus :)!
