For a while now I’ve been looking into alternatives for the towels we use at The Clinic. As you can imagine, we were getting through LOADS every week! The washing and drying was really inefficient, using litres of water and lots of electricity. Not great for the environment.
Looking after the towels was also taking up a lot of our time – constantly loading and unloading the washing machine and the dryer – which we could have been spending with our lovely clients!
I thought there had to be a better way, so started looking into the alternatives.
I’m delighted to say I’ve found a fantastic product! And following some in-house testing and feedback from the team, we’ve now started using Easydry towels at the Clinic.
The award-winning Easydry towels were invented by Irish businesswoman Anne Butterly. The idea first came to her when she was living with six other girls and completely fed up with the constant mounds of hair-dye stained, soggy towels. I think we can all relate to this!
She set about designing a new type of disposable towel, and Easydry is the result. The towels are super-absorbent – much more so that standard cotton towels. They are made of a fabric that uses natural fibres from renewable sources, which is great news for the environment. The manufacturing process doesn’t use chemicals, and the towels are fully recyclable and biodegradable.
And the cherry on the cake: they are 100% hygienic, as they are only ever used once.
We do still use standard towels for our massage treatments, as clients told us they prefer the warmer, heavier feel of cotton for these, but all other towels we use are now Easydry.
I’m always on the look-out for ways to make the Clinic more sustainable, and I’m really glad to have found a solution to this particular problem that makes business sense as well as environmental sense.
I’d love to hear your feedback on the new towels, next time you visit the clinic let me know what you think! I hope you’ll be as impressed with them as I am. And if you want to find out more about Easydry, click here to visit their website.
