“Green” your Beach Towels! July 24, 2008

Pool and beach towels are traditionally made from cotton–a crop that accounts for one quarter of the world’s insecticide use, according to the Sierra Club.  If it’s time to replace your old towel, why not keep it out of the landfill and go for greener options?

You could turn worn-out towels into:

  • dog toys
  • batting for a baby quilt
  • or donate to an animal shelter for drying off damp critters and lining kennels

When it’s time to replace those old towels, look for options that use organic cotton or (fast-growing) bamboo.

Any more ideas for recycling old towels?
