It’s easy to pick up a paper towel, dry your hands with it and then throw it away. But did you ever wonder how all those paper towels can affect the environment? Living in the United States gives us the opportunity to use whatever is convenient, but it’s also that convenience that makes us forget about all the waste that’s produced from it. We as individuals can make a change in helping the environment, prevent the so called “global warming” and help the world make less waste.
People Towels (https://www.peopletowels.com/), a company dedicated in making 100% certified organic Fair Trade cotton towels helps with our choices in reducing, reusing, and reinventing the common household towel. With People Towels, they are easily washable and easy to tuck into a purse, pocket or backpack. In fact, People Towels are an ideal size for almost anything you would use a towel and paper towel for. They are great to keep in bathrooms, in kitchens, and to carry around you whenever you need a personal towel. They help keep your hands clean and help prevent extra usage of paper towels. In fact, having your own hand towel also helps prevent germs from spreading with dirty paper towels or towels you share with others.
People Towels was invented as an idea taken from the Japanese nation where reusable towels are common practice. To prevent overuse of paper towels or napkins, People Towels are indeed a great personal towel that you can keep virtually anywhere. All of People Towels are made with ethically sourced organic cotton and printed with eco-friendly dyes. They are also partners with many environmental and social companies and movements including 1% For the Planet, The Breast Cancer Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and a few others. With such a promising company and product that’s environmentally and socially responsible, you really can’t go wrong with trying People Towels towels. In fact, I keep several of them in the house and some I have given away to friends and family so that they can also reap the benefits of their own personal hand towels.
With People Towels you don’t have to worry about not having anything on hand to wipe your hands or face, or especially when public restrooms are out of paper towels to dry with. In a convenient 9×9″ size, you can literally tuck a towel anywhere you see fit. Although I would love to have bigger sizes for other uses, People Towels is working on making different sizes in the future. You can also find People Towels at certain natural grocery stores and specialty stores throughout the US and parts of Canada. They are easy to spot because of their colorful and unique designs and can also be purchased on their website.
What’s really fun about People Towels is the ability to design your own towel to personalize them if you want. You can put your own photos on the towels or whatever you think might look good on a hand towel. They make excellent gifts for practically anyone and if everyone uses their own People Towel’s hand towel, think of all the trees we would save! People Towels are suitable for students, travelers, co-workers, and virtually anyone who could use something that’s helpful, convenient, and personable. I think they also make fun gifts for birthday parties, weddings, and anywhere you might want to give a party favor for your guests. Your guests will think it’s such an innovative present that they’ll want to get more for themselves!
What I like about People Towels is that they become really soft after a few washes. But because they are made with organic cotton, they will shrink quite a bit which is something that isn’t too big of a deal but can hinder the usage. But they are the right size for drying your hands or your face or to wipe down something that you would normally use a paper towel for. They are easily washable, doesn’t wrinkle, and are quite cute looking.
As an official People Towels Ambassador, I was given the unique opportunity to try their organic cotton towels. And they have also kindly offered 1 LUCKY reader of Happymomblogger the opportunity to win a 3-pack towel set of their very own. If you have kids in school, these would make wonderful gifts for them. They are convenient, easy to use, and ultra stylish!
