Can disposable towels be eco friendly?
Easydry is fully committed to the concept and practice of sustainable product development. Our primary objective is to develop an innovative range of products using sustainable raw materials and processes to ensure minimal environmental impact.
Our commitment to safeguarding the world’s environment extends to every step of production. We have carefully and painstakingly forged every possible link in our supply chain to partner only with companies that can demonstrate their own commitment to sustainability and environmentally conscious processes.
Easydry takes its responsibilities seriously when sourcing raw materials:
The trees that provide our raw material come from
sustainable, properly managed forestry. We use no chemical fertilisers or pesticides, artificial irrigation, genetic modification or illegally harvested wood.
Our trees are grown on marginal land unsuitable for food crops or human habitation.
Our forestry sources are continuously monitored, assessed and certified.
production of our raw materials combined uses approximately 40 times less water than the cultivation of cotton.
Compostability / Recyclability
Easydry towels are 100% biodegradable. They will fully biodegrade within 12 weeks. Easydry fibres are part of nature’s cycle – they come from nature and return to nature.
Easydry towels are recyclable and can be recycled with cardboard/paper waste.
All packaging is compostable or recyclable.
