Paper Towel Replacement can Save the Average American Family $150 per year

Miami, FL — August 27, 2014 - Leblon Zone, the environmentally responsible consumer products company, has released the Xtra Shammy reusable home cleaning towel. The breakthrough towel replaces paper towels in virtually all use cases, enabling the average American family to cut its bills by $150 per year while reducing waste, deforestation, water pollution, global warming, and landfill. The Xtra Shammy is 100% biodegradable and machine washable. It does not attract mold or mildew.

“Many people use paper towels because they seem convenient. Grab, use, throw away,” said Frank Dias [title] of Leblon Zone. “But, there’s an inconvenient truth that goes with all that seeming convenience. You can’t recycle a paper towel. Once it is used and thrown away, that paper towel is off to the landfill together with your savings. We’re going to change this reality”

Dias also noted that consumption of paper towels is highest in the United States. American paper towel use is 50% higher than in Europe and nearly 500% higher than in Latin America. The average American family uses between 1.5 to 2 rolls of paper towels per week. The use of disposable paper towels also has a huge negative impact on the environment.

Leblon Zone wants its customers to save money while being environmentally responsible. “It’s really a win-win,” said Dias. “We help you stop the waste before it starts by pre-cycling with reusable towels. Little changes can make a big impact. Admittedly, there may be times when a paper towel is the best option, but we can help you reduce your use of this wasteful product.

Xtra Shammy cloths are made out of a rayon type of material which is woven to make it feel a bit like felt when it is new. But once it becomes wet, it will become a soft leathery material. Unlike a regular leather chamois which cannot absorb that much water and gets hard when it dries, the Xtra Shammy towel soaks up more than 12 times its weight in water, and when it dries, it stays soft. They can also replace sponges and scouring pads. They are designed for picking up cola, wine and pet stains. They don’t drip. Nor do they scratch surfaces. The 20”x27” Xtra Shammies are machine washable and bleachable.

Xtra Shammies are available on Amazon: for immediate delivery.
