Green Your Pool -- Towels
Pool and beach towels are traditionally made from cotton--a crop that accounts for one quarter of the world's insecticide use. If it's time to replace your old towel, keep it out of the landfill and go for greener options.
Out with the old: Summon your crafty side to give worn out towels new life as dog toys or batting for a baby quilt. Alternatively, donate them to an animal shelter for drying off damp paws and lining kennels.
