People Towels Green

Our Daily Green is proud to announce that we are now a PeopleTowels Ambassador. We first wrote about this simple product at the beginning of this year when we encouraged our readers to discontinue the use of paper towels.

About a month ago, we won a Twitter contest sponsored by DoYourPart and received two complimentary PeopleTowels in a small drawstring storage bag. (retail value $15.99) (in the interest of full disclosure, while we first wrote about PeopleTowels in January, yes yes yes, it did take winning a contest to actually start using them). 

Honestly, we're a little embarrassed it took as long as it did. What a cute and cool product! After receiving them as a prize, we did a little more research and signed up to be a PeopleTowels Ambassador. As an ambassador, we received another PeopleTowel as well as access to special discount codes to offer our readers.

Nominate People Towels by Sept. 12, 2011
I took my PeopleTowels on a recent trip and was impressed by their convenience. Admittedly, it's a habit to break to not reach for scratchy paper towels or slow working hand driers, or even the ever convenient leg of my pants. However, after a few hand washings, it became second nature to use my PeopleTowels to dry my hands.

The company founder, Mary Wallace was inspired on her trips to Japan, where it is considered good etiquette to carry a personal hand towel at all times. She was determined to share the BYOT (Bring Your Own Towel) concept back home.

From their website:
What are PeopleTowels? People Towels are the newest concept in sustainability, and the latest in eco-chic fashion. An on-the-go, sustainable alternative to paper towels in public facilities, these reusable personal hand towels are made of a patent-pending fabric that’s 100% certified organic Fair Trade cotton. The light-weight fabric is absorbent, yet dries quickly. PeopleTowels are printed with eco-friendly dyes, and come in a variety of designs to appeal to different tastes and styles. Convenient hangtags even allow you to clip or loop your PeopleTowels to your backpack, belt buckle or purse. PeopleTowels are machine washable and will last for years. The towels will soften and fade slightly after repeated washings. You may see slight variations in the towels.

Don't you think it's time to BYOT?
