Small Act, Big Impact

August 14, 2014

By various calculations, we each use 3,000 paper towels outside the home every year. Doesn’t it seem like a waste to cut down a tree to make a paper towel that is used once and thrown away?

PeopleTowels are made from 100-percent organic, fair-trade cotton and printed with environmentally friendly dyes. The custom fabric is absorbent and dries quickly. 

What will happen if you switch to PeopleTowels for a year? You’ll reduce landfill waste by 23 pounds, conserve 250 gallons of water, cut carbon emissions by 34 pounds, and save one-fourth of a tree. Now imagine if everyone took that step together.

Need more convincing? Listen to the PeopleTowels founders about the impact these powerful little towels can make for the earth.

So what are you waiting for? Take the challenge today: eliminate paper towels from your daily routine!
