Plastic is everywhere, we simply can’t avoid it, It’s bad for us and bad for the planet, Here’s How To Clean Your Kitchen Without Toxins!
I have not used a paper towel in my home for almost 18 years now. I don’t miss it at all.
I’ve used everything from old t-shirts to microfiber cloths to clean my home and was recently introduced to a paper towel alternative called The Original 100% Biodegradable Reusable Paper Towels.
These Reusable Paper Towels are made from the same type of cellulose fibers that are used to make paper towels. But with a big difference.
Reduce Your Waste
Paper Towels – whether or not they are made from recycled paper or old phone books are disposable. Paper towels end up, after a single use, in the trash! From there, used paper towels end up in already crowded waste disposal sites.
Save Our Forests
Cutting down trees for single-use, disposable products, such as paper towels, is not a sensible or sustainable choice. Information is readily available on the web and in the public domain regarding the enormity of the consumption of paper towels.
Each Towel is reusable – machine washable, dishwasher safe and equal to up to 15 rolls of paper towels, it is the sensible, sustainable choice.
· Machine washable – up to 300 times.
· Dishwasher Safe – top drawer.
· Absorbs 20x its weight.
· Each towel is equal to up to 15 rolls of paper towels.
· Can sterilize by boiling
· 100% biodegradable in active microbial soil within 12 weeks.
· Comes in a handy, resealable bag.
The towels come in 3 task-oriented colours:
· blue for all-purpose
· yellow for kitchen
· green for tub ‘n tile
The sponge is 100% biodegradable and will disintegrate 100% in active microbial soil within 12 weeks. The fiber is not biodegradable. However, it is made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester waste which source is recycled soft drink & water bottles.
Unlike certain competitors, no formaldehyde resins are used in our fiber, only water-based resins. Consider the millions of plastic bottled consumed every year for a single-use. It’s a waste of natural resources and money. Consider the resources employed to feed that consumption. It’s about re-directing our draw on resources to reusable, recycled materials. It’s about changing about the consequential environmental footprint.
