Product Description


Seventh Generation Recycled Paper Towels absorb spills quickly and work hard, even when wet. These thick and thirsty towels are also lint-free, making them a perfect choice for cleaning windows and other reflective surfaces. And they are made from 100% recycled paper, with a minimum of 80% post-consumer materials, making them the right choice for the environment.

Made from 100% Recycled Chlorine-Free Paper
By choosing Seventh Generation Recycled Paper Towels, you'll be making an important environmental difference immediately. These paper towels are not whitened with chlorine and are made from 100% recycled paper (80% post-consumer, 20% pre-consumer). Hypo-allergenic, unbleached, strong and absorbent, these towels will help you keep your home and the environment clean.

Post-consumer paper is paper that has been recycled at home or at the office. Buying post-consumer paper helps finish the job you started--of saving the earth's natural resources, including trees, water, and energy. And using products made from post-consumer recycled materials helps reduce the need for virgin wood pulp, which means more trees are left standing. Trees naturally absorb carbon dioxide--a greenhouse gas that's the primary contributor to global warming. In fact, a single tree, over its lifetime, absorbs about one tone of CO2. To put it another way, a ton of recycled paper saves seventeen trees.

If every household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of 120 sheet virgin fiber paper towels with 100% recycled ones, we could save: 1 million trees, 2.6 million cubic feet of landfill space (equal to over 3,800 full garbage trucks), 367 million gallons of water (a year's supply for 2,800 families of four), and avoid 38,000 tons of pollution. And because these towels have been whitened with an environmentally safe process and have not been treated with chlorine, you can safely compost them in your garden when you're done using them.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great for the Environment???
    Papertowls are not good for the environment.. Even if they are recycled. Use a regular reusable towel. Purchasing them online only makes it worse. The packaging and shipping more than destroys any benefit the environment gets by buying this "green product". ...more info
  • Vegans Beware...
    ...you ought to know that Seventh Generation uses whey when processing their recycled paper (to remove glue from post-it notes, etc)....more info
  • small sacrifice for Mother Earth
    Granted other national brands of paper towels are softer and thicker and maybe even tear easier along the perforation, nonetheless this product gets the job done. I limit my use of paper towels for environmental reasons anyway but I beg of you germ-o-phobes out there that use paper towels for everything to switch to an environmentally friendly product. Its a small sacrifice to make for the good of Mother earth....more info
  • What you'd expect from cheap paper towels
    Pros:

    - Fairly cheap.
    - Environmentally friendly

    Cons:

    - Poor quality. I have gone through at least 50 rolls of these things and never once pulled a sheet off the roll without ripping it (unless I hold the perforation with one hand while ripping carefully with the other). These are not strong paper towels at all. For the price, I'm okay with that and will continue to purchase them, but make sure you're aware before ordering....more info
  • Yep, these are paper towels
    I don't have much to say. These are paper towels and work like paper towels should. ...more info
  • How long will a carton last?
    71-yr-old widow, lives alone, plus one dog; fairly liberal usage.
    16 months for a carton each of the white paper towels and the 2-ply toilet paper; I'm ready to order again.

    I love not ever running out of this stuff; I love not having to lug the bulky stuff home from the store. Fortunately I have plenty of storage space. The cartons get broken down and taken to the dump -- no big deal, since all cardboard gets the same treatment here.

    The quality is decent, way better than what I've used in underdeveloped countries, not as good as what most Americans seem to consider their birthright. I just don't require that level of cushiness -- and who does, when you get right down to it? ...more info
  • I'm very happy with these
    I like to recycle and I like to purchase recycled products - but they have to do just as well as the alternative. I am thrilled with these - they don't fall apart easily and do a great job....more info
  • Paper Towels
    Great for the environment and great price, especially when purchased in bulk and automatic shipping is used. they could be a little more absorbant, but it doesn't matter because I know that we are harming the environment less with these....more info
  • Environmentally, this makes no sense
    Buying this in a supermarket, as I do, makes good sense. Having it put into more packaging and shipped to your door is ridiculous. Even chlorine processed paper with no post-consumer content in a supermarket is better for the environment....more info
  • They are decent towels
    They are paper towels. Not as thick as Bounty, but that's been okay.

    The thing I do not like is that they do not tear at the perforation very well at all. Consistently.

    Otherwise we like them and we love the environmentally friendliness of them (as much as disposable paper products can be)!...more info
  • ok, not great
    I've been trying to switch our household over to "green" products, but only if they're as good as regular products. This one doesn't quite measure up. I think they're fine, but I'm not a big paper towel user (I use washcloths or napkins), but my husband is disappointed with the quality of the paper towels. They're not quite as absorbent, which means you have to use more to get the job done, which defeats the purpose of being environmentally friendly. Plus, each roll of paper towels seems pretty small, which means you have to keep changing rolls, which is annoying - and again defeats part of the purpose - saving resources (wastes paper towel rolls). Also, seventh generation should have half sheets like some of the commercial brands do, so that if you have a small mess you don't waste a whole paper towel....more info
  • Love it
    Great quality paper towels do the job and help the environment at an affordable price. What more could you ask for???...more info
  • Disappointment based on positive reviews
    I own the brown version of these paper towels and only use them to cover food in the microwave as they are not useful for anything else. I delayed buying the white ones for that reason. Then I read all the positive reviews that it was close to Bounty (brand I use and love) and much stronger than the brown.I can assure you this item is NOT even close to Bounty, but is moderately better than the brown version. After it is wet, it starts to decompose but not as readily as the brown version. After I use up this case, I will not purchase either the brown or white again. I do happily use this brand's toilet paper (except when guests come) and I love their lavender scented dish washing soap and laundry products. ...more info
  • Eco Friendly Paper Towels
    I bouth these at the store and I have to say that the strength of them is a little weak. I am happy that they are from recycled paper however, wipeing off my daughter's face after she eats was a hassle because they would fall apart....more info
  • Pretty Good
    They are not exactly like their less environmentally conscious cousins, but they work for most things, the bigger spills I use a regular kitchen towel. I really like that there is a better choice for the environment available and I will continue to purchase....more info
  • why?
    I have been buying Seventh Generation paper products from Amazon for the last couple of years. I last bought these paper towels in April 2008 and the price now in August 2008 is $10 more. I just can't imagine WHY the price has jumped so significantly. I will look elsewhere....more info
  • Wake up Every littel bit helps.
    Now you can wipe and know you are helping out the planet! Paper is from trees and without them we are in the poop house. Save a tree!...more info
  • Good, but could be better
    Amazon makes it easy to switch to recycled paper products at our house. There are a couple of things, though, that would make this product better. The rolls are not quite as long as regular paper towels, so they tend to fall off a standard towel dispenser unless it's spring-loaded. And, if we could find the half-sheet rolls in a recycle-able product, that would become the standard for our family. Many times we only need half a sheet to do the job. That saves a lot of trash over the course of a year....more info
  • Ok for casual use
    These are ok, not super absorbent. I use dish towels and reusable absorbent cloths, but I picked these up when my mom came to visit. She's been known to go through a roll per day. She particularly likes to use, rinse, wring, dry, and reuse any paper towel sheet that she can. These fell apart as soon as they got wet, and forget wringing! Needless to say, she was not happy with these at all, but I don't mind them for cleaning the counter top, dining table, etc, that only requires a one-time use. Not really great with spills, and they seem to leave dishes just as wet as when you started drying them. A strange trait.
    So, they are not for serious paper towel lovers. But I don't mind them for casual use....more info
  • They are what they say
    Paper towels, they soak up liquids. Don't know about the cost of them, but they do soak stuff up....more info
  • Very Disappointed
    I love buying "green" products and recycled products. These paper towels are the worst ever. I absolutely hate them. I would send them back if it was worth the shipping. As soon as they are even slightly moist they fall apart and disintegrate. We don't use baby wipes, instead we use paper towels and plain water to clean our toddler and 5 year old boys. These are terrible for that purpose. Even if we use four or five towels at once they fall apart and are useless. Wiping up spills produces the same effect. If we are using these for dry messes these towels are horrible. I won't buy these again....more info
  • Cleaner Cleaner
    These are cheap, effective, and low impact.
    I tried using reusable cloth, however I ended up washing them so often that they used more chemicals than just letting the paper biodegrade in landfills. These are very inexpensive vis Subscribe and Save (cheaper than Costco) and use more thoughtful paper sourcing. Great all around. ...more info
