Here some statistics to think about on Earth Day: The western, developed nations make up 1/4 of the world population as well as consuming 3/4 of the world’s resources. Every day in the U.S., over 3000 tons of paper towel waste is produced as a result approximately 60 million gallons of polluted water and 72,000 trees felled to create more waste. Not too mention beyond the waste of resources, the paper towels themselves add to the landfills that have been proven to produce methane gas that is contributing to global warming.
Meet the solution…
People Towels are the newest concept in sustainability, and the latest in eco-chic fashion. An on-the-go, sustainable alternative to paper towels in public facilities, these reusable personal hand towels are made of a patent-pending fabric that’s 100% certified organic Fair Trade cotton. The light-weight fabric is absorbent, yet dries quickly.
They are printed with eco-friendly dyes, and come in a variety of designs to appeal to different tastes and styles. Convenient hangtags even allow you to clip or loop your PeopleTowelsl to your backpack, belt buckle or purse.
Some of the other eco-friendly options can be plain, People Towels have warm, whimsical-type designs that offer personality. As well as these 100% organic fair trade towels are not scratchy at all. People Towels are easy to clean and drying take less time due to them being lightweight and thin. The convenient hangtag helps me to keep them off the floor where they happen to end up when hanging from the oven or cluttering the already limited counterspace. People Towels are trying to make BYO towels the next eco-statement. Imagine taking a personalized towel to the gym (or anywhere for that matter) that would both eliminate waste and keep you from using hand dryers &/or rough paper. towels.
