Are you "Green" or just plain gross?

One mom turns wears her panties on one side on Monday, turns them inside out wears them on Tuesday and does this for the rest of the week. 

Another mom and her family use "family cloth" instead of toilet tissue. 

I would love to save the planet and try to create as less waste as possible, but I can not be this "green".  Do you have "green practices" that would leave others just plain grossed out?  Share them here.

No I don't reuse panties (weird!) but we do use family cloth, reusable menstrual items, cloth diapers, cloth wipes, cloth "paper towels", etc.

If its brown flush it down if its yellow let it mellow lol. I use family cloth when I pee, but that's it. I also use cloth diapers/wipes for my 4mo old dd so I wash them all together.

the grossest thing I do is refuse to wash a pair of jeans if I was only in them for a couple hours and did nothing messy or sweaty.

Same here, except for the family cloth. We haven't quite gone that green yet:)

How exactly does "family cloth" work?  Do you only use it after peeing, and then wash it?
