Greenest alternative to kitchen roll: Unpaper kitchen cloths
Kitchen unpaper towels
These handmade kitchen unpaper towels are a great replacement for single-use paper kitchen roll. Made with a 100% unbleached cotton waffle weave fabric from a UK supplier. Waffle cloth is woven in a way that makes it very absorbent, but it also allows air to flow through it so it dries quickly. This makes these cloths very effective for wiping down surfaces in your kitchen and they should last for years so will save you money too. Store them in a basket, napkin holder or drawer next to your sink. When they need a wash, just pop them into your washing machine. When you think they have reached the end of their usefulness, you can cut them up into scraps and put into your compost bin.
