{green your home} soft + absorbent organic cotton towels

some people shower in the morning, others bathe at night.

i've said it before, and i'll say it again: i love taking baths. nothing relaxes my mind + soothes my body like a good soak in the tub right before bed.

having learned that synthetically produced chemicals + toxins found in textiles can easily penetrate our skin, we're adding some super supple + sustainable towels to the lavatory today.

so let's continue on our journey to green our homes this week. so far, we've spread a little green magic in our bedrooms with eco-friendly bed linens, and we've sprinkled a bit of good into our kitchens with nontoxic dish soap + household cleaners {laundry detergent, too}

today, let's make our bathrooms a little safer. here's a list of organic goodies to transform your plain ole powder room into a luxurious, green spa: 

luma

luma's cotton supplier in India is a fair trade partner with Oxfam and Greenpeace, and its Peruvian partner has led fair trade projects in Peru for over 20 years.

many of luma’s accessories sustain remote communities that depend on their traditional skills and support poverty relief efforts. natural cotton is grown by rural communities in developing countries to produce luma's lovely towels.

coyuchi

coyuchi's GOTS-certified organic bath linens are made with quality, care and fine detail. coyuchi towels are loomed from pure organic cotton, in colors drawn from earth, water and sky. soft and thirsty, they're designed to dry quickly on the towel bar and in the dryer. cotton is 100% organic, and sourced and woven in India.

king of cotton

king of cotton no pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used in the growing of the cotton crop used for these towels, and even though this produces a lower yield crop, the final result is one of purity, both in the quality of the textile and the effects on the earth itself. the 650 gsm fair trade organic cotton towels are the result of a highly ethical agricultural practice resulting in a beautifully soft, deep pile towel.

under the canopy

under the canopy's 100% fair trade towels made from chemical-free, oeko-tex cotton and dyed using low-impact dyes. free of pesticides, toxins + heavy metals, they will keep you squeaky clean just like a towels are supposed to. 

okay, the time to hesitate is through! let's get organic. all together now. 

here's a great read if you're interested in learning more about synthetic dyes and the effects on the environment + our health.
