**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.
