Monterey, CA (PRWEB) November 8, 2010
PeopleTowels, producers of reusable personal hand towels, the eco-friendly, on-the-go alternative to paper towels and air dryers, is celebrating its first anniversary by announcing a price reduction on all its unique eco-chic designs, including three new designs from the recent Big Green Dream Design contest. The 10% price reduction applies to all its fair trade organic cotton personal hand towels offered at retail stores, on its website, http://www.peopletowels.com and private label PeopleTowels.
“We made the decision to lower the price of PeopleTowels so we can reach a wider audience. The more people who adopt the B.Y.O.Towel eco-habit, the greater the environmental benefits of trees saved, water conserved and reduced landfill waste and CO2 emissions,” said Linda Lannon, co-founder.
“We have seen that individuals are willing to make personal lifestyle changes to help the environment by adopting little “eco-habits” – small sustainable acts with a huge environmental impact”, comments Mary Wallace, PeopleTowels visionary and co-founder.
The average person uses 3,000 + paper towels outside the home each year, equivalent to approximately 8 large garbage bags of single use paper towels per person. Each person who switches to PeopleTowels can save 1/4 of a tree, conserve 250 gallons of water, cut CO2 emissions by 34 lbs. and reduce landfill waste by 23 lbs. in one year.
In its first year in business, PeopleTowels acquired thousands of new customers, opened new retail accounts across the country, and created private label PeopleTowels for many businesses both large and small. The People4PeopleTowels ambassador program was launched to expand the “B.Y.O.Towel” outreach and currently has ambassadors across the country. PeopleTowels hosted two very successful design contests (40th Earth Day Contest and Big Green Dream) in which design students and professionals alike competed to win cash prizes and have their designs printed on special edition PeopleTowels.
