Today’s Sustainable Action: Washable Towels!
Paper towels use lots of trees and fossil fuels to make, and they also produce a massive amount of waste. A healthy alternative for drying your hands can be reusable and washable towels! Cloth rags and hand towels are more eco-friendly and will cut down on the money you spend. Our family started using towels during quarantine because it was more affordable then having to buy single use paper towels. You can buy these by simply searching for “hand towels” or “hand rags” on Amazon or at your local grocery store. Thank you for reading my sustainable action today and I hope you will keep my tip in mind next time you are buying paper towels!
Today’s Fact: Globally, discarded paper towels result in 254 million tons of trash every year.
It’s the next generation that will deal with the effects of Climate Change on the Earth so we are thrilled to introduce Maddy Brianas and her Tips! Maddy is an Annapolis teen who is passionate about protecting the environment. Last year she and her sister, Bella (and their parents), participated in our Have a Heart Do Your Part cleanup and then turned around and did a birthday fundraiser to benefit Annapolis Green!
