I am in the process of doing some minor renovations to my condo. Nothing drastic - painting, flooring, removal of environmentally-unfriendly stuff, etc.

Right now, I am redecorating my bathroom. One of the things that went is the "always popular" plastic shower curtain. I decided to change to a 100% cotton shower curtain (see below) that is washable during its lifetime AND biodegradeable when it comes to the end of its life.

But, wait! Don't throw that old shower curtain away to live forever in a landfill - at least, not yet.

Now, whenever you have a project that requires a dropcloth, you can use your old shower curtain. Everytime you use the shower curtain, you save another dropcloth from possibly entering the land fill. Do any camping? Put the curtain down to prevent dampness from seeping into your sleeping bag from the ground. Need to protect something on your balcony or patio from the elements? Use the curtain.

It can be used over and over; and, we know it will last a long, long time.
