Consider these crazy (but true) paper towel facts:
• To make one ton of paper towels, 17 trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are polluted.
• In the U.S., we currently use more than 13 billion pounds of paper towels each year and that number is growing. This equates to more than 3,000 tons of annual paper towel waste. Across the globe, discarded paper towels amount to 254 million tons each year.
• A many as 51,000 trees per day are required to replace the number of paper towels that are discarded every day.
• If every household in the U.S. used just one less 70-sheet roll of paper towels, 544,000 trees could be saved each year. If we individually committed to using three less rolls per household per year, we could collectively save 120,000 tons of waste and $4.1 million in landfill dumping fees.
