7 sheets of paper towels made of organic cotton (GOTS), one side honeycomb and one side printed cotton.
Made in France in ESAT (establishment and service of help by the work: social economy and solidarity).
Why this alternative to paper towel?
We have to admit it, paper towels are really practical. But if you think about the deforestation, the chemicals used to make it white as snow and the waste it generates, it suddenly seems much less friendly. So why not switch to a washable paper towel?
Thanks to its honeycombed surface, it retains its ability to absorb liquids or mop up. So you can deal with life's little accidents without cluttering up your bin. And because it is durable, at the end of the year, your wallet will also thank you.
Also to take care of the planet but also of your skin, it is made of 100% organic fabric (GOTS).
Description and characteristics
Two designs and colours are available to choose from:
- A white printed cotton wipe with red and black poppies. Red honeycomb fabric.
- A light green and white printed cotton paper towel with leaves. Light green honeycomb fabric.
It is sold in packs of 7 sheets, each measuring 22 by 25 cm.
Use it as a classic paper towel, honeycomb side to absorb, wipe ...
But after use, go to the dirty clothes basket. At the end of its life, in many years I hope, as it has no plastic or metal materials it can be recycled and as it is made of organic cotton it is even compostable.
To remove the ugly stains that will become ugly over time, use Marseille soap or the stain-removing salt with active oxygen (effective even on colours).
Guidelines for best use
Washing at 30°C is recommended.
As it is made of cotton, a slight shrinkage can be noticed at the first wash, without altering the qualities and characteristics of the product.
Our choice of materials
We have chosen GOTS certified organic cotton for ecological reasons. Unlike bamboo, tencel or even microfibre fabrics, cotton is a 100% natural material from its cultivation to its transformation. Choosing GOTS cotton ensures that there are no chemical treatments from production to design, but also that resources (such as water) are used efficiently and that working conditions are beneficial for the workers.
Bamboo and Tencel fabrics, which are often used, require the use of a lot of solvents in the transformation of the rigid fibre into a soft and flexible material.
Microfibre is not natural, as it is a synthetic fibre (derived from oil).
With the choice of GOTS cotton we strive to take care of your skin, which will not be in contact with irritating, allergenic or toxic products, but also of the planet!
As for jute fabric, it requires little water for its cultivation. It does not need pesticides or fertilizers to grow. The most economical method, manual processes (retting) are preferred for its transformation.
