103. Paper Napkin Skull

Crumpled Paper Napkin. This is my used dinner napkin (why they still use paper, and bleached paper at that, is beyond me). Yes, I did leave this on the table when I left.

Ok. Very weird. There was a paper towel in my dream. Must be esp for Skull-A-Day. Let Jung figure this out. Good job. I'm now very spooked...

Love the skulls, but the social commentary is a little unnecessary. How about doing Skull-A-Day and Environmentally Harmful Consumer Products-A-Day? Besides, if you really cared you would refuse the paper towels and the styro containers, it's not like you couldn't get them to wrap your food in foil and you could carry your own unbleached napkins.

Oh well Anonymous, I guess that's the price you have to pay for getting free daily skulls from me. If you don't like it go somewhere else or make your own.

Well, I enjoy the social commentary on blogs. It is part of the person who produces the blog. Another great skull. I have a tissue (bleached - sorry! - and clean) waiting to be formed into a skull even as I write.

Thank you for all the skulls, and for the work you put into it. I also thank you for sharing your thoughts on each one. I look forward to your art every day!

That anonymous fellow is wiggity whack! It's your blog, so naturally it's going to have you thoughts and opinion on things. I personally like your commentary on our societies almost blatant disregard for its effects on the environment. Keep up the good work!

Cool skull. I wonder what the server thought? I bet you'll get a call from the department of homeland security one of these days.

Also, to anonymous's point: What is art if not the ability to express one's views?

Thanks for the positive feedback guys, I really appreciate it!

Tim: I think most of the time people probably don't even notice them and they just get cleaned up/thrown out. But I would be pretty entertained if I did hear from Homeland Security!

I'd love to find a skull on a table some time!

Your skulls are always great! Its your blog and can say what you want! I don't want to offend, but, what would you make napkins out of instead of paper? Bleaching is pretty unecessary, I understand, but the wood used in them is a renewable resource harvested from dedicated tree farms, not clearcutted old growth forests.

Another Limited Rebellion said...

Cloth is an option, if it's made out of reclaimed or organic material and cleaned without bleach.

Unbleached 100% post-consumer waste recycled, paper is preferable to virgin paper from an energy, water, and land use standpoint.

And don't assume old growth isn't being used in regular paper napkins. One of the largest paper product manufacturers is being targeted for doing just that.

Why they use bleached paper napkins: Paper napkins are usually cheaper than using cloth with a cleaning service. And cloth would seem 'too much' for many restaurants, as well as the potential for leaving with the customer.
And, for good or ill, people tend to think of a white napkin as cleaner. Even restaurants who use cloth tend to favor white. (Though the fact that it can be bleached clean probably matters.)
