These towels were hand picked, cut and sewn by Prudence, my daughter. She will be donating the proceeds to WWF (World wildlife fund).
Its time to replace your paper towels with Un-paper towels!

Paper Towel Waste in the United States
In the United States, we use more than 6,500,000 TONS of paper towels every year. That’s a lot of trees and a lot of waste.
- According to the EPA, paper and paperboard products make up the largest percentage of all municipal solid waste, at a whopping 25.9 percent.
- To make one ton of paper towels, 17 trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are consumed.
- It would take 51,000 trees planted per day to replace the number of paper towels that are tossed each day.
- Decomposing paper towels in our landfills (remember, more than 13 million pounds per year) produce methane gas. Methane gas is a leading cause of global warming.
- In the U.S. alone, paper towels yield a $6 billion market. **source** https://mollyssuds.com/2019/06/22/the-paper-towel-trash-problem-and-how-you-can-help/
