Single use anything is so 2015 and so are disposable paper towels. Millions of paper napkins are used everywhere in urban India in a single year. 0.07 gallons of water is required to produce a 0.08 ounce paper napkin (not including the water to grow the tree.)

It releases 35% more oxygen. Read on to know where can you find the best alternatives to disposable paper towels:
