HERE'S WHY RECYCLED COTTON IS BETTER.
It takes 3.6 lbs of carbon emissions, 720 gallons of water, 3.2 oz. of pesticide, and 5.3 oz. of fertilizer to produce 1 lb of virgin cotton. By recycling the unused cotton waste from factories, we're eliminating those inputs and reducing our carbon footprint, one recycled product at a time.
This 4-pack of towels can be used as dish cloths, napkins (all the cool kids do this), gift wrap, and more. When they're past their prime, use them for polishing and cleaning. Each features a different color stripe on a natural background: green, blue, light blue/silver, and red.
- 100% Recycled Cotton (uses less resources to make)
- Reduce dependence on paper towels/napkins
WHAT DO THEY REPLACE?
Having more hand towels and wipes around reduces our dependence on paper towels, and since these are recycled, reduces our dependence on virgin cotton, which is resource heavy. Depending on how you use them, these could also replace paper napkins. It's up to you. They're a good value.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF
Each 4-pack contains one of each color: red, blue, light blue/silver, and green.
Size: 16" X 24"
Care: Machine washable
100% RECYCLED COTTON
White paper wrap held together with clear circle sticker. All is recyclable except the sticker.
Distributed by a US company; made in China. WG made the decision to buy these because of the fact that they are recycled... it's challenging to find products in the USA or Europe out of recycled cotton. We will keep looking.
