The average american uses over 700 lb of paper a year! 

Here's a great cloth solution to one of our biggest paper problems. Our reusable paper towels are the same shape and size as the ones as you've always used, only made with a super soft and absorbent layer of birds eye diaper cloth on one side and a cotton fabric of your choice on the other help do your share of eliminating all that waste!
Other facts you need to know about paper towels include:

- 40% of U.S. landfill trash is paper products.

-The paper industry is the third largest contributor to global warming.

- If every household in the U.S. used just one less 70-sheet roll of virgin fiber paper towels, that would save 544,000 trees each year.

- Change that to using three less rolls per U.S. household per year, and that would save 120,000 tons of waste and $4.1 million in landfill dumping fees.

- Your typical paper towel is manufactured using chlorine, which releases carcinogenic dioxins and furans.

- Approximately 2/3 of paper towel usage takes place at home and the remaining one-third of towel use is out of the house which will comprise consumers utilizing the towels while out of the home and also in public toilets, etc.

  1. I totally agree with you, Lindsey. I stopped using paper towels several months ago and I haven't looked back. It feels good and it saves us a bunch of money!
