Throw Away Your Towels And Go Greener Around The House

Apr 4, 2008
We are all under constant pressure to save the planet by saving the earth's resources and by being more energy efficient. We are all being told to drive smaller cars and drive them more efficiently as well as making sure that we turn the lights off when we leave a room or better still fit energy saving light bulbs in each room.

All of these points are valid energy saving ideas but one of the most energy wasting tasks is using the washing machine. Imagine how many towels each household goes through in a given week, and then imagine how many towels a hotel goes through in any given day. That adds up to a lot of washing and drying, but how can we save energy where this is concerned? Easy really, use paper towels where possible. Paper towels use less energy to produce that it takes to manufacture, wash and dry a conventional household hand towel so you're already doing you bit.

By choosing to go eco friendly and use paper towels in your home you can make them into a feature of whatever room they are going to be used, whether it is in the bathroom or kitchen. To do this all you have to do is seek out a paper towel dispenser that comes from one of the leading fashion and design houses. By looking on the inter web or studying fashion or interior design books you should be able to find a style of dispenser that best suits your interior décor. A very popular style of dispenser for the kitchen is the art deco style of paper towel dispenser. With it's sweeping curves and minimalist features it sits very easily against many of the modern style of interior design that we have in our homes today. If you chose to go with paper towels look for a dispenser that has a sturdy weighted base that ensures that the paper towel holder won't tip over, alternatively you can go for the wall mounted option that blends nicely into its surroundings. The wall mounted option is equally at home in the kitchen or bathroom whereas the free standing art deco style dispenser is more at home in the kitchen.

Some of the fashion designers of today have incorporated other accessories into their ranges to minimize the appearance of having a paper towel dispenser in the kitchen, it is now possible to get a kitchen bin that matches the design and colour of the dispenser and making the range look more complete.

Using paper towels at home is just one small way that we can cut down on wastage and save the earths resources at the same time. Paper towels will save you money in the long run on electricity as you will use your washing machine less as well as your tumble dryer which also means you will cut down on washing detergent also. If you live in an area that has a recycling programme within its waste collection remit you will also be able to recycle your paper towels to add yet another reason as to why you should make the change from normal fabric towels to paper towels.
