We’re fans of eliminating as many single use plastics as possible, their negative impact on our environment is incalculable and only getting worse with time. Why not make a durable and reusable version of those things we make use of everyday? For the final workshop in this series of simple reusable home products we’re making non-paper towels.
What the heck are non-paper towels? If you find yourself reaching for paper towels somewhat often at home, they’re something you should consider investing in. When we purchase paper towels from the store they’re often wrapped in plastic, shipped in another plastic bag, and very rarely available as something manufactured from recyclable paper products. Non-paper towels are an absorbent replacement that is able to be wrapped around your paper towel holder and you can ‘tear’ pieces off because each square is connected together with snaps! Then, you toss them in with your regular wash and reuse them again and again.
