Why we made this dish towel and why switch?
- Many regular dish towels are made from polyester which is a petroleum-based fibre made from non-renewable sources.
- Washing polyester causes hundreds of thousands of micro-plastic fibres to release into the water stream, and eventually back into our natural ecosystems.
- We make our dish towels from 100% organic cotton, which means that they are 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
- It also means that no dangerous fertilisers are used farming the cotton. These fertilisers pose a huge threat to human health and the natural ecosystems on cotton farms.
