The Best Sustainable Tea Towels
The best sustainable tea towels are made from organic cotton, linen or hemp, all of which naturally biodegrade back to the earth after use. Tea towels are washed frequently. So if you have synthetic fibre towels, use with a microfiber catch bag, to stop microplastics breaking off in the machine, and going into the sea.
If lining a wildlife box with towels/blankets, remove string or knotted fringes, as they could entangle on the way to the rescue.
Helen Round’s Pretty Organic Linen Tea Towels (Cornwall) are handmade and will soften with age and use. In 2 colours (natural or duck egg blue), it’s ideal for drying dishes and glasses. Machine washable.
