Hopefully things are changing with this though as we do all have the option to be more eco friendly and do our tiny little bit to save the planet, added up together though every little bit helps to save the planet.
We can choose to buy green fuels for or motor vehicles as well as buying our gas and electricity from companies who promise to put back into the planet what they take out and also buy timber products from renewable forest sources.
Every time you walk into a supermarket there seems to be more and more aisle space solely devoted to organic produce.
What a few years ago was nothing more than a couple of shelves of organic produce tucked away in a corner of the supermarket is now generally over twenty meters of space.
Organic is everywhere, which is good, it gives people the option to choose in what way they would like to save the planet as well as what they put into their bodies for fuel.
But it isn't only food stuffs which are going organic to save the planet.
It is now possible to get whole ranges of house hold items and clothing that are available in an organic bath towel option.
Such a product is the common bath or hand towel.
A full line of luxurious organic, fertilizer free, cotton plant bath towels are now readily available in stores for those people who want to be good to the environment as well as good to their body and skin.
Generally the organic bath towels that are available to buy at present are made of a higher grade cotton that is farmed to the very strictest of organic standards to ensure that quality and integrity is not compromised.
All of these quality controls go towards making a much thicker, purer, and more luxurious bath, beach or hand towel.
When cared for in the proper manner, as per the manufacturer's instructions, a fertilizer free organic bath towels or linen towel will out last and out perform a standard towel for many years.
This is because of the make up of the cotton and the processes that it has to go through to ensure that it is a completely organic product.
From start to finishing the processing of the cotton has to be totally chemical free as well as fertilizer free when being grow to ensure that it is a totally organic product, the same effort has to be applied whatever the material being used for organic towels whether it be bamboo fiber or linen.
The organic range of bath, beach and hand towels is available in just as many color schemes as the regular towels that we buy in the shops at present, the main difference in the coloring of the towels is that the organic towel is colored using one hundred per cent chemical free dye, if any chemicals are used at ball in any of the processes the product cannot truly be called an organic towel.
