Country of Manufacture Rating


Company Rating

Manufactured in : United States


Made in USA by Vermont based Seventh Generation.

Seventh Generation was established specifically to develop household pantry and cleaning products that are better for the environment.  It was purchased, in 2016, by Anglo-Dutch conglomerate Unilever, but has remained true to its original mission.

These are great environmentally friendly paper towels.  Not as good as using a washable dishtowel or cleaning rag, but about as good as you'll get for paper towel friendliness to nature.

Of the many things you can do in your daily routine to help the environment, switching to environmentally friendly paper towels should be at the top of your list.  There's just no reason to be using paper towels that weren't made with the environment as a top priority.

According to Seventh Generation, these paper towels are: Super absorbent and strong;  Made without dyes, inks or fragrances;  and Made with 100% recycled paper which is gentler on the environment because it helps reduce the need for virgin wood pulp.



Points in favor of this product:

  • Made in USA
  • Respected product
  • Specifically designed to be environmentally friendly


As an alternative, you can buy White Seventh Generation Paper Towels Now From Target which are a bit less eco-friendly, but still made with recycled paper and still better for the environment than most standard issue paper towels.
