Why Reusable Tissue Towels?
55 million tissue papers are discarded in Hong Kong every day, meaning 580,000 trees being cut every year. The manufacturing process of tissue papers pollutes our water, while our excessive use of tissue papers is causing a significant burden to our landfill – disposable tissue papers and napkins occupy 7% of our landfill, almost as much as plastic bags.
For many of us, it is intuitive to grab a tissue paper after washing hands, meals or for cleaning a table without knowing what we are causing to the environment. The case is even worse for those with nasal allergies – they live with tissue papers, while the tiny particles of tissue papers may worsen their symptoms. For tissue papers to look crisp white and clean, manufacturers often use fluorescent agents and other chemicals that will go down your throat as you wipe your mouth with them before you eat.
