GREAT THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU USE JUST ONE LESS ROLL OF PAPER TOWELS EACH WEEK
You save $80 each year
Paper towels ain't cheap. America uses more paper towels than the rest of the world, combined, and spends $6 billion each year. Its a habit worth breaking.
Trees sing your praises
If you share ALT with one other friend, together you can save a tree each year. If every American home used one less roll of paper towels each week, we can save 24 million trees every year.
The air gets cleaner
Methane from decomposing paper in landfills and the fuel used in production of paper towels contribute 434 lb of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions each year. That's the same as burning 200 lbs of coal!
We conserve freshwater
Nearly 750 gallons of water can be saved - thats the amount of freshwater you use around the home for 10 days and burn less fuel...to make electricity - nearly 700,000 Btu/year. That's enough to power your house for a whole week each year.

HOW WE DO IT
We service both homes and restaurants. When you send us your worn linen, we sanitize and upcycle them as cleaning towels for restaurant kitchens.
When we set out to make clean, high-performing products, sourcing safer ingredients was at the forefront of our mind. Over the years, we have worked hard to build a responsible sourcing program to continually address high risk ingredients including: vanilla, mica and palm oil. We’re committed to selecting ingredients and materials that prioritize the people and the planet for generations to come.
When it comes to product packaging, it’s not just what’s inside that counts. We’ve been careful to assess the impact our packaging may have on the environment—as well as our health. Bottom line, our packaging has high standards, too. Here’s how our sustainable packaging initiatives are making clean beauty look even better.
Climate change and sustainability are ever-evolving fields that are shifting daily with developments in science and research and new information about how changing environments are impacting people’s health. As leaders in clean beauty, we share our goals and wins so that the environmental, economic, and social impacts of our efforts can continue to hold us accountable to do better.
At Zero Waste MVMT, our mission is to inspire people around us and encourage them to live a more sustainable lifestyle. We want to help by collectively reducing waste and making sustainable products accessible to everyone. Together, we can help our precious Mother Earth thrive for generations to come! On top of promoting a low waste lifestyle, we are also helping to plant trees in areas of need to reverse the detrimental effects of deforestation. We plant a tree with each and every purchase :) We stay true to our name by always shipping in zero-waste packaging. Our labels are printed on 100% recycled paper, we seal our packages with paper tape and we use post-consumer materials as often as possible!
