Paper tissues do not come from recycled wood. Instead fresh trees are cut to produce them. Because of what they are used for (mostly for hygiene purposes), tissues are not recyclable but handkerchiefs are.
The best material for handkerchief is 100% cotton as polyester and cotton blends do not adsorb moisture.
Why use handkerchief:
- It saves money
- It produces less waste/saves resources
- Hankies are more comfortable to use
- Hankies create less of a mess
- Hankies are more sustainable
Save the earth and the trees by using handkerchief instead of paper tissues.
