Paper Towels

ABSORBENT, SINGLE-USE CLEANER

Paper towels, a common household item, is very convenient for messy situations. They can clean up just about anything from spilled soda in the kitchen to wet hands in the bathroom. All it takes is a forest of trees and carbon dioxide emissions to support America's single-use, cleaning essential.

Cloth towels are a more sustainable alternative.

Can't make the switch? Just

use less!

Instead of paper towels that can only be used once, consider using cloth towels. They can clean almost anything. After you use them, just throw them in the washer to be cleaned then used again. You can have multiple, different colored towels for different uses. One color for cleaning dirt, one for washing your face, etc.

Save the paper towels for situations that truly need them (blood, dog doo doo). Also when using a public restroom, just take one or none instead of three or four. The environmental resources needed to produce paper towels are being used up faster than they can be replaced. So this waste is piling up faster.
