Even before they began participating in the Zero Waste movement, James and Kimberly Van Der Beek made the switch from paper towels to reusable microfiber towels. Kimberly was immediately sold on the benefits, but it took a little more convincing to get James on board.

“My wife suggested we go without paper towels. I said she was crazy. Guess who was wrong. #transformationtuesday, ” the actor tweeted yesterday.

On her blog, Old School New Rules, the wife and mother of two happily shared why she decided to order microfiber towels instead of the usual “mega order” of paper towels.

About three months ago, Kimberly said she “had an epiphany about the mindless amounts of money we were spending on paper towels in our household, and the ridiculous amount we were putting into our landfills.  Cleaning up spills, holding an apple, wiping off hands, cleaning the countertops, we used them for everything.  It was time for a change.”

She couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Just a couple of weeks in, James became a believer too.

“The results: microfiber towels have been much more effective at cleaning up countertops and spills.  They pick up every bit of dust, and have easily done the job of paper towels better then, well paper towels.  I’ve been tossing them in the wash whenever I do our other towels and haven’t had any issues on running low.  And, after putting up a big fight about my “extreme” ways, it was only two weeks before James looked at me and said, ‘You know what I don’t miss?  Paper towels.’  Success!”
