These clever towels are an absorbent waffle weave and feature a hanging loop. Because, sometimes, what you aren't is more important than what you are. Made in India, printed in the USA by Green 3.

Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness, and high-quality American-made designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

    This was a gift for an eco-friendly girlfriend. I do a lot of gift shopping online and I know I can always find something in the mid-price range for anyone, young or old! Sometimes if I'm looking for something lower price I don't buy from you.

          Comments about I Am Not a Paper Towel Kitchen Towels:

          It was my partner's New Year's resolution to stop using so many paper towels in the kitchen, so this gift, with its pronouncement, was the perfect answer. It is a bonus that the towels are soft, attractive, and seem to be resilient as well. White color is nice for the kitchen, in case a little bleach is needed to restore the color.

            Before I gave this away, I obviously had to make sure it was all it was cracked up to be based on the former reviews. It is BIG, absorbs VERY well, and is very unique. The only reservation I have is my worry that it will get dirty very quickly because it is all white. But I love it overall! I want to get myself a pair!

              I use these in my kitchen and they are great. They are big and pick up water well. Also, a plus that I am not using paper products and reducing our carbon footprint!

                Dries very well and quickly. Need to wash pretty often though if you use it daily but still want to hang spotless.

                  Bought as a gift for a very "green" minded daughter. She appreciated both the sentiment and the fact that the towels do what they're designed to do--work as kitchen towels!!
