I'm accustomed to seeing news about green products on environmental blogs, but it's rare to see a mainstream newspaper website touting the benefits of a green product unless there's a big story behind it. This week, I was surprised to see a short piece on the Charlotte Observer website about a product that we've discussed on the blog before--Bambooee Bamboo Paper Towels.
It's exciting to see that a paperless product is gaining some attention, and it's easy to understand why the towels warranted a mention. Because of their absorbency, these reusable paper towels are the equivalent to more than 200 rolls of paper towels. You can reuse a single sheet up to 100 times and even launder it in the washing machine.
Bamboo is an excellent alternative to the wood pulp used in paper because it is strong, absorbent and grows very quickly. Harvesting bamboo does not require removing the root of the plant, so the plant never stops growing. If you haven't checked out Bambooee Bamboo Paper Towels yet, now's the perfect time to give them a try.
