Paper Towels

Instructions

Put the paper towels in the compost bin.

Alternatives

Use reusable towels instead. When you do buy paper towels, look for 100% recycled content and/or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified.

Facts

If every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin fiber paper towels (70 sheets) with 100% recycled ones, we could save 544,000 trees.
