Paper Towels - Alternatives

Forty percent (40%) of trash in U.S. landfills consists of paper products. We are destroying not only our forests, but the boreal forests that our songbirds breed in. In spite of the digital age, our paper use has increased by 46%.

Paper towels comprise the largest portion of paper waste in landfills. If everyone just switched to 100% recycled paper towels, one million tons of used paper would be kept out of the waste cycle every year! Better yet, use cloth towels and rags.
