Stephanie noticed that Target has an entire new section on their website dedicated to "smart choices for you and the environment." We're seeing the same kind of green creep in their stores, such as these apparently unbleached organic towels in the kitchen department.
We like the soft color and the texture, which seems to be softer than the standard bar mop towels. The price is $7, and they are available in stores only, not online. We would have picked up a package, but we don't need towels right now, as we recently scored a huge package of (not organic) washcloths that we're using in our ongoing quest to eliminate paper towels.
Target is also selling flour sacks in the same line for drying glassware. The paper sleeve on the towels is 80% post-consumer recycled, and the towels are made of IMO-certified organic cotton. (We're still doing a bit of digging on IMO certification—here's a blog post on the plus and minuses when it applies to coffee.)
Peggy over at Tree Hugging Family has purchased the towels and seems to be satisfied.
