Best eco-friendly gym towels sustainably made

Sustainable gym towels eco friendly

It can be difficult to find a decent, whilst eco friendly, gym towel in your typical high street stores without doing a little research beforehand. They are often not clearly signposted or given the prominence in the store that earth-friendly minded people would like. But fear not, as keen gym goers and wanting to find great eco alternatives, we have rounded up the best eco friendly gym towels for you below.

Eco-friendly gym towels

When looking for eco-friendly towels, organic cotton is the key fabric material you should go for as it uses less water compared to conventional cottons, and the organic type doesn’t use harmful chemicals within production – plus it has an overall lower carbon footprint. 

Equally, going for a towel that is made from recycled materials is a good choice as the lifecycle of previously used materials is reused rather than going to landfill (or worse, ending up in the sea). 

So let’s take a look at some of the best out there…
