Moms wanting to try out organic bath towels without making a hefty investment up front _after all, organic towels can be expensive - can consider the organic cotton 700-gram cotton bath towels, hand towels and washcloths available through Bambeco.com. Priced at $28, $14, and $6 each respectively, these towels are manufactured in Portugal and made using non-toxic dyes.
Bambeco's towels are Global Organic Textile Standard certified organic - GOTS is the lead global certifier for organic fibers. Because cotton can be heavily bioengineered, at least according to Dr. Mercola on his health website, this can lead to the use of pesticides. Dr. Mercola also reports that up to 60 percent of what is applied to adult human skin is absorbed, and even more so for children, which is why purchasing GOTS certified products can be a good option.
Although Bambeco's towels do not come in sets, they can be more affordable than towels found at other sites that can range up to $200 per set. The price for a bath towel, hand towel and washcloth from this line is $58 combined. They also are incredibly soft. And while the color choices for organic towels can be very fundamental, Bambeco's 700-gram line comes in 10 color choices, ranging from coral to chestnut and aloe to flax.
Bambeco, which is a sustainable home goods company, also offers other organic bath towel options, and if your timing is right, you might score a deal through a sale. Additionally, Bambeco has pledged to hit a net zero carbon footprint by 2020. In short, not only were my towels shipped free carbon-free through FedEx Ground, they also were received within five days of purchase.
