Monterey, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
PeopleTowels, the U.S. pioneer of reusable, personal hand towels; an environmentally friendly, on-the-go alternative to paper towels, announces the launch of its ambassador program - People4PeopleTowels. People4PeopleTowels’ ambassadors will help create awareness of the environmental impact of single use paper towels. The average person uses 3,000+ paper towels outside the home each year. Ambassadors will promote the B.Y.O.Towel message to their friends and families, and share the benefits of switching to PeopleTowels, such as reducing deforestation, waste and pollution. It is estimated that each person who switches from paper towels to PeopleTowels will save 1/4 of a tree, reduce landfill waste by 23 pounds and conserve 250 gallons of water every year.
“The environmental impact of plastic bags and plastic water bottles is well known. With the new People4PeopleTowels’ program, we hope to build that same level of awareness regarding the impact of paper towels on the environment,” said Linda Lannon, co-founder of PeopleTowels. “Our ambassadors will help to spread the word about the newest eco-habit, PeopleTowels, and earn extra cash and rewards while helping the planet.”
The People4PeopleTowels’ program is open to all interested parties. Once accepted, ambassadors are automatically enrolled in the Rewards’ Program to receive cash rewards for introducing friends to PeopleTowels. Ambassadors are also eligible for special discounts and PeopleTowels’ offers.
