What is a Jimmy Towel?
Jimmy Towel is a reusable, quick-drying microfiber hand towel that zips into a pocket-sized case so you can take it anywhere. The removable lining is easily washable and perfect for drying hands and faces, wiping spills, cleaning lenses, and more.
PAPER TOWELS ARE THE WORST. WE CAN DO BETTER.
Each day 51,000 trees are cut down to make paper towels, 3,000 tons of those wind up in a landfill, and pollution from the pulp and paper industry only makes global warming worse. We can do better with Jimmy Towel. Watch the video below to find out how.
In 2011, Alec Ramsey’s friend Jimmy shared that to conserve resources he hadn’t used a paper towel in more than a year, opting to dry his hands on his pants instead. Moved to make an impact, Ramsey began sewing prototypes for a pocket towel to help others reduce their own paper towel consumption. He named the finished product “Jimmy Towel” to honor his friend and original inspiration. First funded on Kickstarter, Jimmy Towel is now proud to be partnered with ChicoBag.
