Paper towel is NOT recyclable as the fibres are too short to be recycled and they are usually contaminated, however you can put them in the compost. For families who love to use paper towel for multiple purposes, imagine how much waste is in your red bin, and how much room there could be saved if you chose an alternative...
To make paper towels you need:
🏭 And then there is the pollution caused to the atmosphere in the manufacturing processes
🚛 And finally, in the transportation from factories to homes.
The good news is, you don't have to use them! There are alternatives, and they don't always have to cost money. You can switch to wash cloths or tea towels. Or purchase products such as those in the clearance section of my website
✔️ Paper Towel
✔️ Even Tissues
In my wipes section of the website you will find a few options. My most popular and loved, is my NON-paper towel. This is my favourite product to make, as it excites me how much waste and pollution they can save by simply switching out the paper towel. My 1 roll of non-paper towel has lasted 3 years. And during that time, I have purchased 2 packets of wet wipes - for travelling, and 2 packets of kitchen towel (I can’t convince my husband to Clean the BBQ with something else… YET !!!! But you can save older ones for that purpose really.. Where this is a will there is a way..!)
So do you think you're ready to give up the paper towel and try an earth friendly, bin friendly, budget friendly option? It's the eco swap you wish you had done so much sooner
