I'm all about being green. And like Kermit the Frog best said, "Being green isn't easy", but this neat invention called Skoy cloths makes it that way. Skoy cloth is a bio-degradeable, re-useable, environmentally friendly inexpensive sponge like paper towel? For lack of a better word! Its basically a thin sponge/cloth. I really like this!

I know what a Carbon Footprint is, and I reduce mine by using SWAPTREE, RECYCLEBANK, I barely use paper towels, I recycle my bags at walmart/publix/winn dixie, and have preached about that subject for years! (See my myspace blog..) and I buy re-usable coffee mugs/drinking cups w lids.. because I know about the epidemic about water bottles... but thats a whole 'nother story.

True story? My dad Greg is obsessed with using paper towels at dinner. I am not messy eater, I do not require a napkin. I guess because he has a mustache and it gets in the hair? Anyway being a navy wife, I live a good ride out from my hometown, where my parents live. Well, he will come out and stay a few days at a time, and I will usually go buy one roll. Just one. Ha! Because I know if I don't, he gets upset! I dont use them.. I use rags. So these Skoy cloths will probably make quite an impression on him. But then, some people are just set in their ways, with little regard. But just because you know these things.. not everyone will do them. We think its such an insignificant thing, that our contribution matters not.. but it really does! Every little bit counts!

Well, I have to tell my readers that I will be giving away the cutest little set of Skoy Cloths.. Here is why you should want them:

The Skoy Story (click here!)

Reason # 1 - Oprah recommended! And you know she gets down and is in-the-know about what's hot and what's not! Read all about it HERE.

Reason # 2 - Quick fact - Paper Towels are evil. (Q & A That follows from WikiAnswers) "Are paper towels bad for the environment?

Yes they are. During the production and transportation it requires the burning of fossil fuels. They are also usually bleached white, which emits dioxins.

However, Paper towels are considered inferior among towels. Many experts argue that they should not be considered towels at all, due to their evil polluting nature! Paper towels don't count, don't let this put you off towels all together! Towels are your best friend, never be without your towel."

Read more:

(OK, maybe thats an exaggeration, but they are certainly not good either!) It is our habit to reach for one after we wash our hands, (use a hand towel!) Or to clean up a mess in the kitchen. Or dust with, or many things, but your Skoy Cloth can be used for those things as well - PLUS it is good because it can be used as long as you want to keep cleaning it. Up to a year! You can wash it in the washer and dryer and it also can be steamed to get germs out on a plate of water for a minute or two in the microwave!

Reason # 3 - You can use it on anything.! Skoy has colored cloths that are great for hard surfaces and wont show little food messes that could potentially stain them. And they have white cloths as well, that they sell and recommended for cleaning carpets or things you might not want to stain , the color in the colored Skoy cloths can potentially rub on on something of a lighter color. So they are prepared for anything. Colored for big messes and white ones for treating stains and scrubbing other fabrics with!

Reason # 4 - You can use it in ANY room of your house. Or for whatever you like!

Reason # 5 - Skoy Cloths are biodegradable!

Reason # 6 - They are fun! They are cute and attractive sitting on your counter!

Reason # 7 - You can get a Skoy 4-pack for less than you can get 4 rolls of paper towels, and they last 15x as long (or longer!)

Be sure to check them out on their website here!
