SUSTAINABLE • REUSABLE • CUTE
Swedish cloths are a must-have in any Scandinavian home; now they can be in your home too. They are one of the best alternatives to paper towels and sponges. Best of all? They're adorable.
Why cut out paper towel?
Every day, over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in Canada alone.
To make one ton of paper towels, 17 trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are consumed. Decomposing paper towels produce methane gas. Methane gas is a leading cause of global warming.
What about sponges?
Dish sponges cannot be recycled or composted and can only be thrown into landfills.
Even after you throw old sponges away, the antibacterial agent that they're impregnated with negatively impacts aquatic ecosystems. Plus, the synthetic materials that they're composed of continue to release dioxins and formaldehyde into soil and the atmosphere.
Hello, Swedish Cloths!
Earth friendly, reusable, and machine washable. One Swedish Dishcloth replaces 40 paper towel rolls.
Made from cotton and plant-based cellulose fibers, these compostable cloths are a must-have in any home.
