Looking for a way to get active this week for Earth Day? Â One easy way to reduce Â your impact is to ditch the disposable paper towel habit in favor of a reusable option. Â You can B.Y.O.Towel with something from home, or even better, use one designed for on-the-go use like PeopleTowels. Â Made from 100% organic, Fair Trade cotton, they are lightweight, compact, absorbent and fast drying. Â If one in 4 adults switched to PeopleTowels for a year, they would save:
- Enough trees to cover the state of Alaska
- Enough waste the fill Fenway Stadium four times
- Enough water to fill 22 Olympic size swimming pools
Simply by bringing their own, reusable hand towel.
