People Towels ... not paper towels. We have to admit, the tag line is catchy, and perfect for Going Green month. Every day, over 3000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the United States. This leads to approximately 60 million gallons of water polluted and 72,000 trees chopped down, just to create a product that becomes trash within moments.
People Towels are a step towards an environmentally friendly solution. Each People Towel is a 9x9 inch square personal hand towel, made from 100% organic, Fair Trade cotton. Each towel is lightweight, quick drying and very absorbent, and includes a hang tag, to clip to the outside of back packs, purses or water bottles. The towels feature a variety of cute patterns, printed with earth friendly dyes. Sets ($15.99) include two towels and an eco-sack; check them out here www.peopletowels.com/purchase there are larger sets geared to supplying towels for 3 or 5 days.
We received two People Towels to test, and the hardest testers I know are my own children, ages 5 and 8. Several weeks later, we still have both towels and they've held up well through the rigors of child testing, including martial arts classes and lunches.
