HOW TO GET STARTED

With the average household consuming 145 paper towel rolls a year, we are consuming a lot of mature trees for a bit of convenience. Bleached paper towels are not great in terms of environmental impact during production. In addition, these paper towels are made of short fibers and can't be recycled. So moving to substitutes like Swedish towels can make a huge difference - specifically, it can translate to 1 mature tree being saved each year.

EMBRACE

  1. Swedish towels are made of cotton and cellulose and are completely biodegradable.
  2. These towels can last 4-6 months and up to 12 months with extra care
  3. Each cloth can replace up to 17 paper towel rolls

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Many paper towels are bleached which is a caustic process
  2. The average household in the US uses 145 paper towel rolls per year - essentially each household goes through one mature tree a year just in the form of paper towels.
  3. Paper towel fibers are too short to be recycled - so paper towels end up in landfills
