Unpaper towels as a cleaning accessory is a brilliant eco-friendly swap for single-use paper towels and polyester based cleaning cloths. Did you know paper production causes deforestation, uses large amounts of energy and water, and contributes to air pollution and waste problems? The single-use kitchen roll or kitchen tissue usually ends up in the landfill along with other paper based products which make up for 26% of landfill waste (USA based statistic)?

What are Unpaper towels?
The Unpaper towels are made from super soft, absorbent cotton and terry towelling and are designed for wiping and cleaning different surfaces in your home. Both sides of the wipe are great at absorbing spills and wiping down surfaces. From kitchen worktops to cookers & hobs, windows and doors; these towels can be used to mop up spills, clean and dust your home.
They are handmade to withstand repeated use and designed to last. These home wipes can be used again and again for months to come.
How to use Unpaper towels?
If you are going to dust, use these when the cloth is dry.
If you want to clean and wipe down, wet the towel and use as normal. Use with mild and gentle cleaners as harsh chemicals can bleach the fabric.

The products I make have minimal packaging. All the packaging is handmade in-house and gets printed as needed to reduce stockpile. The products will have a sleeve or a little gift card with jute string and this is made with recycled card with no gloss or colour bleaching. They are made with 100% recycled paper. Every aspect of this has been thought through with sustainability and its environmental impact in mind.
