Throw In The Paper Towel

Did you know the average person uses between 2,400 and 3,000 paper towels a year? Throw in the paper towel and tote these reusable alternatives, instead. Made from 100% certified organic Fair Trade cotton, these extra-absorbent and lightweight hand towels are made to curb your paper towel usage at the gym, work or in public facilities.

Printed with non-toxic dyes, these eco-friendly drying solutions help preserve our natural resources by keeping wastebaskets a little lighter. A set of two PeopleTowels are sold in a travel sack, which prevents the towels from getting dirty while you're on-the-move. Sack features a hang tag for easy clipping to backpacks, belts or purses. Keep one within arm's reach or tucked in your purse for grab-and-go drying. Lasts at least one year.

By switching to PeopleTowels for a year, you could potentially save a quarter of a tree, reduce landfill waste by 23 pounds, conserve 250 gallons of water, and cut carbon emissions by 34 pounds.

These estimations are made using the following data:
- 20,000 gallons of water are used/polluted to make one ton of paper towels.
- 17 trees are consumed to make one ton of paper towels.
- It takes approximately 24 trees, 40 feet tall and 6-8 inches in diameter, to produce a ton of paper.
- At work most people use at least 10 paper towels daily (5 trips to the rest rooms x 2 towels).
- A single tree produces around 100 pounds of paper which is about 4 cases of paper towels (2400 sheets weighing approximately 23 lbs.=1 case) The average person uses about 2400 to 3000 paper towels outside the home.

Made in India.

        The design of this product is adorable. I like that it is envirmental and it made for a unique gift. However, I was embarrassed when my friend opened it and they were so tiny and somewhat skimpy. She joked that she could use one for each cheek. Great idea and size would have been fine if they were priced at 8-10 dollars. Paying [$]was very high for the product.

          Comments about PeopleTowels:

          I was ready to purchase the Peopletowels until coming to the words "Made in India". Why couldn't all your goods be MADE IN U.S.A? The first time I looked at Uncommon goods catalog I was astonished in a good way of how many of your products are made in the United States. I love the idea of the 3R's so the Peopletowels would be a great addition to my household. Sure wish I could be supporting my country when buying them.

                I purchased these towels for myself, my brother and my boyfriend. I purchased them to use instead of paper towels. I feel good using them knowing I am contributing to less waste in the environment! I leave them right by the sink and dry my hands with them. I have yet to use them for cleaning but plan to.

                  Comments about PeopleTowels:

                  Peopletowels are awesome for using while you're out and about instead of those scratchy paper towels or obnoxious hand dryers. They are so small and light weight they're easy to bring along and they dry pretty fast - faster if you hang them on the outside of a bag. It's the same idea as bringing a cloth shopping bag along with you, or a reusable water bottle or coffee cup. Great waste reducers!
