They adhere to 6 kinds of certifications {FAIR TRADE, GOTS, OEKO-TEX, C2C, RCS & FSC}, and sustainability is at the forefront of their business model. All products are made ethically with eco-minded materials. hey want everyone included in the movement towards conscious consumerism. Therefore, their products are affordable, accessible & {of course} attractive.

LakeShore Dry Goods

You know a product is a keeper when you aren’t in your own home and miss it. That’s how I am with these towels. I have one at my grandparents where I frequent often because I can’t wash my hair and not have one on hand. I LOVE these towels, and even carry one in my car & handbag for those ‘just in case’ days. Each towel is made from GOTS Certified Organic Cotton with low impact dyes, and washes very well.

Living Fresh

I’ve always thought this brand had a beautiful looking towel! Living Fresh has over 40 years of experience in the hospitality textile industry. Their towels are made with TENCEL™+Plus Lyocell derived from eucalyptus and other botanicals, blended with cotton for a silky smooth, soothing sensation. These fibers are able to absorb more moisture and dry faster than others, and they get softer with each wash.

Grund America

From washcloths to bath mats, these organic essentials are GOTS and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified. I’ve been using their 3 Piece Organic Cotton Towel Set in Sage, and love how soft & absorbent they are. I’m going to be snagging one of their bath mats in the future!

SOL Organics

I love my SOL bed sheets so I’m sure their GOTS certified towels are just as wonderful! Like their name, they look quite plush and cozy. SOL Organics live up to these four features: sustainable, organic, fair & transparent. Along with their organic cotton, they also use low-impact dyes!

made trade

One of my favorite online stores for home goods has several different sustainable bath towels from you to choose from. Made Trade carries brands like Coyuchi, Minna and Anatoli. Plus, they make sure each product covers one {or more} of these values - Sustainable, Fair Trade, Heritage, USA Made & Vegan. Each value has a little symbol that is placed right next to the product so you know exactly what category it falls under.

ten thousand villages

Okay, maybe this isn’t a towel but these beautiful robes sure do add something special to your eco bathroom. This particular robe is block-printed by Aravali, which is a for-profit company supporting around 150 artisans in the Jaipur area. Block printing has to be one of the most interesting ways of creating design on fabric because it is rather labor intensive and requires great skill!
