Top 5 things to look out for when looking to buy new eco-friendly towels

Buying a new set of towels may seem like it should be super straightforward. However, if you’re interested in using your money to vote for the world that you want to see then we don’t want to stand in your way. That’s why we have compiled the top 5 things to look for when you’re ready to buy your next set of towels!

  • Look for 100% natural and organic fiber towels: Natural and organic fiber towels are going to be the safest and most effective option for your next set of towels. Chemicals and extra processing that are included in other towels add layers onto the fabric so that it’s harder for the towel to dry out naturally. This results in the dreaded soggy towel phenomena. This actually, was a reason why here at Anact, we use an all natural hemp and organic cotton blend that is the perfect blend of both worlds. We focus on using all natural and organic fibers, without the layer of mystery chemicals, to ensure that your towel will stay long lasting and soggy free. 

  • Choose bath towels made with fabrics that are highly absorbent: You want a towel that is highly absorbent and soft. Even though most people would not consider hemp to be an especially soft fabric, we have created a perfect blend of soft organic cotton with the durable and eco friendly hemp. This results in a towel that is soft when you first receive it from us and only get softer with each wash. We designed this blend to be super absorbent and it also dries quickly so you won’t have a smelly cold or wet towel in the morning. 

  • If you’re prone to breakouts - look for a towel that is biostatic: This is something most people don’t think about when they first buy a face towel. I mean, it’s not very obvious that your face towel might be breaking you out. However, you won’t have to worry about this with a hemp + organic cotton blend since the fabric is naturally biostatic. Rest assured you can use it worry free and know that it isn’t giving you pimples! 

  • Make sure the company that makes them focuses on sustainability in their supply chain: If you want to support sustainable and eco friendly businesses with your next towel purchase, this helps show market demand for these products which encourages farmers and factories to continue to invest in plant based fibers. In this specific context, looking at different fabrics and their water consumption is key. Bamboo is a fabric that is commonly assumed to be eco-friendly, however it uses an immense amount of water to cultivate and transform into fabric. However, if you’re looking for a water saving alternative, our Anact hemp + organic cotton blend towels save on average 526 days of drinking water with each towel. 

  • Choose towels that are durableIf you invest your time and money to pick a good sustainable option for your next towel purchase, you for sure don’t want to have to replace your towels every year. Some towels are more durable than others, but here’s where picking your fabric blend is important. Here at Anact, we chose the perfect hemp + organic cotton blend because hemp is one of the most durable and sustainable fabrics on the market aaaand since it has that lush cotton blended in, it actually makes our towels softer with each wash.
