These paper towels are wrapped in paper, not plastic, a good first start, but we can do better by eventually shifting to cloths for cleaning and cloth for napkins. See below:
This may sound like a little thing, and I guess it is, except if everyone used cloths for cleaning and cotton napkins,Â think how much paper we would save!
Additionally, I found other alternatives to paper towels (link below) from this posting in the Huffington Post:
Are single use paper towels better for the environment?
- Like plastic bags that are thrown away with one use, sheet after sheet of single use paper towels arenât the best for the environment. So you might be looking for alternatives thatâll help with all the cooking and cleaning you do in the kitchen.

- P.S. If you can find organic cotton napkins or make them, so much the better, since about 15% of the pesticides used in the USA come from chemicals sprayed on cotton. If you Google Organic Cotton Napkins you will come up with some choices. They are probably more expensive than regular cotton, but should last a long time. When my regular cotton napkins I have had for a long time wear out, I will probably make organic cotton ones.
