ECO-FRIENDLY WASH CLOTHS

Re-using any cloth is greener than throwing away wet wipes and tissues all the time. We've put together a list of cloths made of more sustainable materials such as bamboo and organic cotton. That way we can be that bit kinder to the planet.

TOP TIP: When washing your cloths it's more eco-friendly to wash at 30 degrees. It's also much greener to hang items to dry instead of using tumble driers where possible.

TOP TIP: When your cloth comes to the end of its life make sure it's disposed of properly in a clothing bank or clothes recycling unit.
