Are you tired of constantly buying paper towels that just end up in the trash, contributing to the already mounting waste problem? Do you want to live a more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle? I hear you! So did I. Our family used to go through at least 1 roll of paper towels per week, and there’s just two of us. If any of this resonates with you, then I have a great solution for you: switch to a washable and reusable paper towel alternative, like Earthly Co.’s notpaper™ towels.
So, why make the switch? Here are 6 reasons to switch to washable paper towels:
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Saves you money
- You can use them for anything
- Cute prints and colors that spark joy
- Compostable and recyclable
- Softer and more absorbent than disposables
Switching to washable paper towels is a simple but impactful step you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint as well as household waste. In the USA, households use 16 billion pounds of paper towels each year. That's 4 million elephants worth of paper towel waste! Cloth based, washable paper towels, like Earthly Co.’s notpaper™ towels, are made from 100% cotton flannel. This is a durable and sustainable material that can be washed and reused hundreds of times, and because it is a natural fiber, you can compost or recycle your washable paper towels. By using these towels instead of disposable paper towels, you can significantly reduce the amount of waste you generate, making a positive impact on the environment.
Washable paper towels are designed to last for months or even years with proper care. This means you won't have to constantly purchase new paper towels, which not only saves you money in the long run but also reduces the amount of waste you contribute to the environment. On average, a family of four can save up to $1,000 per year by switching to washable paper towels. Think of what you could do with an extra $1,000!
Washable paper towels are not only great for cleaning spills and messes, but they can also be used for a variety of other purposes. They make excellent everyday napkins for meals, can be used as lunchbox napkins, baby wipes, face towels, hand towels, and more. With their absorbent and durable material, these towels can handle whatever task you need them for. And when they get dirty, you can simply toss them in the washing machine and reuse them again and again.

Earthly Co.'s cloth paper towels are made of 100% cotton flannel that is double brushed on both sides, making them extra soft and absorbent. The double brushing process increases the surface area of the fabric, allowing it to hold more liquid and effectively clean up spills. This feature also makes them gentle enough to wipe sensitive areas, such as a baby's face. Say goodbye to scratchy, flimsy disposable paper towels and hello to a more comfortable and efficient cleaning experience with Earthly Co.'s cloth paper towels.
