Americans use 13 billion pounds of paper towels every year. While the sheer volume of paper towel waste may make it seem nearly impossible to reduce, consider this: If every American used one fewer paper towel a day, more than 571 million pounds of paper would be spared over the course of a year — meaning each of us can make a big impact.
If you’re on a budget and looking to swap out paper towels for a reusable alternative, we have some pretty awesome news. PeopleTowels, an on-the-go, sustainable alternative to paper towels, is celebrating its fourth anniversary by offering a 40 percent discount on all purchases for 40 days.
PeopleTowels are made from 100 percent certified organic and fair-trade cotton. They come in a variety of fun colors and patterns and are small enough to stash in your pocket to stay paper-free all day.
By using the promo code PT4, shoppers will receive 40 percent off their PeopleTowel purchases through Dec. 15. So, this is a great time to stock up for the season or score a few as holiday gifts for eco-minded friends and family members.
The brand’s online store also includes a Gifts That Give section, featuring towels that benefit charitable causes.
