PeopleTowels, the newest green consumer product, are reusable pocket-sized, personal hand towels made of 100% organic, Fair Trade cotton. PeopleTowels are an on-the-go alternative to paper towels and air dryers. Following the success of cloth grocery bags and reusable water bottles, PeopleTowels promote the next eco-habit, B.Y.O.Towel, to reduce the waste and pollution associated with single use paper towels.
The average person uses about 3,000 paper towels outside of the home each year. By switching from paper towels to PeopleTowels, each person can save ¼ of a tree, reduce landfill waste by 23 pounds and conserve 250 gallons of water –annually.
While the concept is new to the US, the Japanese, who are very eco-conscious, have been using personal hand towels in public for decades. PeopleTowels come in 12 eco-chic designs and are available for private label.
