A Green Alternative to Paper Towels: Paperless Kitchen

Bambooee Ecofriendly Alternative Paper Towels Review

and a SKOY CLOTH Giveaway from Paperless Kitchen!

paperlesskitchenlogo2
     In today’s increasingly green world they are more and more options coming available as an alternative to paper products.  One of the rooms with the largest amount of paper waste is the kitchen.  Ever year people go through thousands of paper towels that they use once then throw away. The average household uses 1 to 2 rolls of paper towels a week.  That adds up to a lot of waste!  In fact, it adds up to about *3000 TONS of paper towel waste being produced PER DAY!  That’s a lot of trees cut down that simply cannot grow back fast enough to keep up with the demand.  Paperless Kitchen offers many alternatives to this problem.
     Paperless Kitchen is an online store that sells exactly what their name implies, alternative products that help you to cut down on waste in your kitchen and other green kitchen products.  You can find all kinds of products from natural sponges to dinnerware made from recycled materials;  all made by environmentally aware brands such as Skoy Cloth, Bambooee,  E-cloth and Peopletowels, just to name a few.

     I received a roll of reusable bamboo paper towels made by Bambooee.   As you can guess from their name, they make their product from bamboo.  “Okay,” you say, “so instead of cutting down a bunch of trees, they cut down a bunch of bamboo!”  Well, let me tell you a little bit about bamboo, and you will see why it is a much better choice!  *First of all, bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant.  That means it is a sustainable resource because unlike trees, bamboo grows fast enough to replace what is used.   Bamboo also requires no pesticides, no insecticides and no fertilizers.  It fights Global Warming by taking in 400% more greenhouse gases and produces 35% more oxygen than standing trees. AND it is biodegradable.  So imagine all the benefits of using bamboo paper towels!

     One roll of Bambooee towels is equivalent to using sixty (60) rolls of regular paper towels, or up to 6 months worth of normal paper towel usage!*  Amazing!  There are twenty (20) sheets per roll, and at first glance, they really resemble regular paper towels both in look and in feel.  But that is where the similarities end.  First of all, these bamboo sheets are much thicker and softer than regular paper towels.  They are also reusable, washable and bleachable!  Yep, you read that correctly, you can throw them into your washing machine in warm water, add some detergent or whatever and wash away.  Just do not add fabric softener, put them in the dryer or iron them, and they will be good as new. When I first read this I was like , “no way”! Well, yes way!  I threw one in with my wash expecting it to come out in shreds, but instead it came out looking brand new!  That should give you an idea about how strong and sturdy these towels are. That and the fact that was the roll not perforated, I would have had to use scissors to cut a sheet off because they are near impossible to tear!  Even soaking wet, I could not get the sheet to tear!

  SQUEEZE IT OUT AND REUSE! 
      They are also super absorbent!  As a test I spilled a coffee mug of water on the floor and it only took one of these towels to dry it all up. Then I simply squeezed it back out and voila! Good to go again!  I also tested one using my regular household cleaner, and it worked perfect. In fact, using one Bambooee towel I was able to clean my counters, the sinks and wipe down my cabinets;  I just rinsed it out with warm water between tasks. I even used one to wash my pots and pans!  These towels are wonderful, and their uses are endless!  Use them to clean, dust,  wash the dishes, dry your hands, they are even strong enough and soft enough to clean your child’s face after a meal!  A definite addition to any green kitchen!

Excellent review. I didn't even know all that about Bamboo and i seriously want a roll of these. I was so excited to find out that they are washable?! Is that sad? lol Thank you!

I need these! We go through so many paper towels each week cleaning up spills and messes from my toddler.

I usually cut my paper towels in half and even then I use them over. I can't believe how much more efficient these non-paper towels are. They sound like a great product and I would be interested in trying them myself.

Wow those paper towels look very thick! I need to go get some as my 3-year-old thinks it is fun to paint...paper...ceremics...himself...the table - these would be a blessing to clean up.

Wow, I have got to try these! We got through a TON of papertowel in my house and while I try to cute back, it's just impossible with 7 people!

Wow nice! Those look awesome!

Wow! That crazy that such a small roll of those equals that many paper towels!

Great way to save on buying paper towels, just buy these. Thanks for the review.

You had me at reusable, washable, and bleachable! That is pretty awesome you used them for all that?!

Wow I never heard of them before! I love paper towels and use them for everything! I now will look into these because I like how they are made from bamboo instead. When I use paper towels it is a one use time but least with these you can use them over and over. Great concept!

Wow! how neat. I love that these are reusable!

 
At August 29, 2012 at 7:12 PM , Blogger Melissa said...

Wow! I instantly started thinking of all of the things I could use these on instead of paper towels. I wonder how they would be as baby wipes since I generally make my own out of paper towels.

excellent review, I need to get myself some of these

Great review glad to find out that info about the towels as we tend to use quite a bit of paper.

 
At August 29, 2012 at 8:42 PM , Blogger Jo Steph said...

Sounds amazing! I love that they can be used for many tasks and are so durable!

 
At August 29, 2012 at 8:51 PM , Blogger Sasha Cory said...

Those actually sound awesome! I had no idea you could reuse them!

This is such an awesome idea! I hate wasting paper towels and its the one thing my husband refuses to go green on. I am looking into this and see if I can get him to bite! Lol!

So nice to save paper towels! I go through so many. Thanks for sharing!

I think my favorite product would be the PEOPLETOWELS REUSABLE HAND TOWELS - NOT A PAPER TOWEL. It would be a great addition to my home and it is offered at a great price.

my favorite product would be the BAMBOOEE REUSABLE BAMBOO TOWEL.

I really like the skoy cloths replace all my sponges and paper towels sounds amazing

 
At September 1, 2012 at 7:47 PM , Blogger Melanie said...

I browsed the website, and I really liked the Veneerware plates :) But, if I wanted to say that I liked something a little more practical for my budget, it would have to be the Bambooee cloths.

I must go get those "paper" towels! Reusable, washable....and environmentally friendly what more could one want?

I've tried to be green since the early 70's when I was looked upon like a kook. My kitchen cloths, tried microfiber, hand crocheted by mother, everything - want to try these cloths and other cleanable products!

Great review! I go through paper towels so quickly. I definitely need an alternative.
