People Towels Give Away

AND THE WINNER IS:
TRIXX!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

How often do you get to a public washroom only to find out that they are out of paper towels, or have one of those ari dryers? If there are paper towels you have to get one by pushing on a lever that's been touched by who knows how many hands. The garbage is over flowing with paper towels. What a waste! I never used to think about where the paper towels came from or how much waste they were. But as I get older I'm realizing how many of natures resources we have wasted in the last 40 years.


The Current Situation

The use of disposable paper towels is having a devastating impact on the environment. Some of the facts about paper towel consumption and its impact are:
To make one ton of paper towels, 17 trees and 20,000 gallons of water are polluted.
Every day, over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the US alone.
Decomposing paper towels produce methane gas, a leading cause of global warming.
The average person uses 2,400 – 3,000 paper towels at work, in a given year.

So - I've often thought that I should really start to carry a towel with me - but who has room in their purse for a towel? Lucky me (&you) - there is a solution!!

People Towels make wonderful small hand towels that you can place in your purse
& have with you where ever you go!

What is a PeopleTowel?

PeopleTowels is the newest concept in
sustainability and the latest in eco-chic fashion. A Green alternative to paper towels in public facilties, these quick-drying, reusable personal hand towels are made of lightweight, 100% Organic, Fair Trade Cotton. PeopleTowels come in a variety of inspired designs, printed with eco-friendly dyes, to appeal to different tastes and styles.

PeopleTowels are small enough to carry anywhere, and the custom-made fabric is absorbent enough to dry your hands, yet dries quickly. Convenient hangtags even allow you to easily clip or loop your PeopleTowel to your backpack, belt buckle or purse. PeopleTowels are a small sustainable lifestyle change that everyone can do for the planet.

Unlike paper towels and other hand-drying methods, PeopleTowels are a zero waste product and do not contribute to harmful practices like deforestation and the growing problems of paper waste, excessive water consumption and pollution.

PeopleTowels are designed to last for years through easy maintenance (all PeopleTowels are machine washable) and the use of high quality materials (100% certified organic cotton). Our designs are silk screened with eco-friendly dyes on a custom-made organic fabric, so you may see slight variations in the towels.

They come in wonderful designs! You can get them in 3-Towel Sets, 5-Towels Sets, or as Singles. Apparently they had a competition for some new designs and you can Vote for Your Favorite
and maybe it will win! I voted for the Earth one with the birdies, but they are all great :) You can also get a wonderful Eco Sack to carry your towel in.

People towels sent me the two towels in the first picture. I love them!! They are small enough for my purse, dry really well, eco-friendly & easy to clean. Bye Bye paper towels :)


NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
One lucky person will receive their choice of a 3-towel Set!

  19. I wonder where they get their information from, "the average person uses 2,400-3,000 paper towels at work per year" that's over 9 paper towels every day at work. What does the average person do at work? I might use 4 on a really heavy use day. I think this product is a brilliant idea, I'm just not so sure about their facts.
