Emerald White 2 ply Paper Towels.
Embossed for super absorbency. Fits in most standard household towel dispensers.
Emerald paper towels contain 100% total recycled content. Paper makes up over 40% of our landfills!
That's a great reason why we shouldn't just recycle, but we should also buy recycled paper products whenever possible. Perforated so they're easy to tear, these paper towels are excellent in the kitchen.
Switching to recycled products takes minimal effort, but can have a large impact on resource consumption. Consider this, the average American uses 50 pounds of tissue paper (toilet paper, paper towels, etc) a year, according to Conservatree, a non-profit seeking to convert paper markets to environmental papers.
The key to shopping for recycled paper products is to pay attention to labels. Beyond the brand names and colorful pictures lies information on recycled content, post consumer waste content and the method of bleaching used.
Be sure to look for goods that have the highest Post Consumer Waste (PCW) content. The percentage of PCW in a recycled product refers to the amount of pulp derived from paper that was used by consumers and then recycled. This saves trees and promotes the use of recycled paper.
