Eco-friendly Bathroom Mat

 

Enhance your bathroom experience with our Eco-friendly Bathroom Mat crafted from 100% cotton. This mat is designed with a double layer of deep waffle cotton that quickly absorbs water, and can be flipped over when one side gets dirty. You won't have to worry about waiting for it to dry as the unique waffle weave promotes airflow, ensuring a fast drying time. Unlike memory foam which can take forever to dry and rubber backed chenille which can become gross, our mat stays fresh.

And the best part? It's completely machine washable and dryable, making it both easy to clean and lint-free. With its luxurious appearance and durability, you'll love how our mat retains its flat shape even after multiple washes. Measuring at 24 x 31.5 inches, it's the perfect size to fit in your bathroom without being too large, and can easily be folded and stored when not in use. Upgrade your bathroom accessories with our Eco-friendly Bathroom Mat today.

HOW TO GET STARTED

Go with good old cotton when it comes to bath mats. Many modern bath mats are made of microplastics. When washed, these microplastics get released and easily make their way into the water supply. All cotton bath mats are easy to wash, feel great underfoot, and are extremely practical. Use two with one on top of the other for extra absorption. 100% looks great and never goes out of style. Cotton is a thirsty crop, but it's an ideal option over microplastic-laden microfiber mats.

EMBRACE

The military or women's hat-making industry led to the wholesale slaughter of America's only native parakeet - the Carolina Parakeet. The insatiable desire for colorful feathers resulted in these beautiful birds being massacred en masse.

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

Our clothes are pulling the oceans with microplastics. When we wash microfiber fabrics and fleeces, small plastic particles are shed and make their way into our waterways and oceans. These include polyester garments and polyester blend garments.
