Reusable. Absorbent. Durable.
UNpaper® Towels are the perfect eco-friendly swap for disposables. These 100% cotton 12" X 10" clothes are durable and absorbent. You can use, rinse, hand to dry and use again, or simply toss in your washing machine. Replace your paper roll by wrapping these around an empty tube. You'll get the hang of it and then wonder why you ever used anything else.
If swapping paper towels for cloth towels is new to you, here are a few tips:
- They become more absorbent after you wash them. Don't judge them until you wash them. :)
- A 12-pack can be rolled on a cardboard center and used on your towel holder. From experience, the more towels you add to the roll, the easier it is to have some in the wash and some clean. Ideally you end up with 24+ on your roll.
- Keep old rags and/or unbleached paper towels under your sink for the super gross stuff you have to pick up from time to time. Thank you dogs and cats and kids.
WHAT DO THEY REPLACE?
Disposable wipes and towels. Imagine, instead of lugging big packs of paper paper towels home that are wrapped in plastic and have to be stored somewhere, you just invest in a couple packs of these. Start with 1 or 2 six packs and add more as you go. No trees harmed.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
From Sarah (Marley and Fox's Mom) and founder of Marley's Monsters:
Our sustainability mission is to implement creative and effective solutions to reduce our environmental impact. As a local manufacturer of reusable home goods, we've always kept sustainability in mind with our daily operations and production. The BRING rethink program made us realize we have an opportunity as a local manufacturer to create lasting and impactful change in the industry. We're on the right track; we refuse and reduce so we have less to recycle in the first place and we're excited to keep improving.
These are great replacements for paper towels. They wash well (so far no stains). They do shrink a bit in the dryer.
Thank you for writing in! The more you wash them, the more absorbent they are, too. We use them for napkins, paper towels, even small gift wraps. Vintage lemons will be in store soon!
