The average American family uses 1.5-2 rolls of paper towel a week.
Even if you are choosing the cheapest paper towel, one Norwex Kitchen Cloth, warrantied for 2 years and 500 washings, priced at $9.99 would save you atleast $62.00 the first year of use.
Eliminating your use of paper towels will reduce CO2 emissions by 5.8 lbs this month.
Paper towels are made from trees. A bleaching process occurs to make them that gleaming white color, which is hard on your already dry winter skin, and could have adverse effects on reproductive systems and your immune system.
According to SC Johnson, “Every day, more than 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the U.S. alone*! To make one ton of paper towels, 17 trees and 20,000 gallons of water are polluted.”
So what to do? Can you cut down, if not completely eliminate your paper towel usage? You so can! Norwex Kitchen Cloths out-perform paper towels in the kitchen every time, have become one of my top sellers, and as wrong as it feels to pick a “favorite” item that we offer, I’m going to finally do it. They are a workhorse of a cloth that make cotton rags and paper towels look like pathetic amateurs in the kitchen.
Rinse, squeeze, and hang to dry after use and let the Norwex BacLock silver technology do it’s thing. If you are new to Norwex and want to make the most minimal investment, this is your entry item to the Norwex lifestyle. (Pomegranate and Graphite are my favorite colors!)
