Thoughtfully choosing the essentials we use on a daily basis can easily be overlooked, like, say, your bedding or today’s spotlight bath towels. Did you know that conventionally cultivated cotton counts for 16% of the world’s pesticide use? Oasis Towels shares, “organic cotton is grown without using any harmful chemicals. It basically promotes an eco-friendly system of farming that manages soil fertility without the continuous use of toxins, pesticides, chemicals, and synthetic fertilizers. This helps keep the environment protected from the exposure to toxic chemicals and thus protects the health of people worldwide.”
Let that sink in, and if you need more convincing, think about this. If you aren’t using organic towels when you dry off your body every day, you’re essentially rubbing toxin-filled material directly onto your skin. We’re not shaming—I’m guilty too, and after researching for this post, I replaced my traditional towels with non-toxic ones. We’re simply encouraging you to give your towels a refresh with organic options. Kourt stocks her home with organic towels from Abyss. Below, we’ve shopped out more plush and toxin-free picks for you to update your bathroom, starting at $10.
