Ecoleaf Recycled Kitchen Rolls x 2 with 100% Compostable Packaging
Our Summary: It's thinner and the roll is slightly shorter than some of the 3 Plys you might be used to but it doesn't tear easily and is nice and absorbent so not much needed. A favourite in our home already!
As with Ecoeleafs other paper products like the popular toilet roll, the kitchen towels are made from 100% recycled fibre sourced exclusively from the UK, produced from a mix of consumer and trade waste using chlorine-free processing. Every effort is made to maximise loads and minimise road miles.
The towel comes in 100% compostable wrap called Bioplast, a plasticiser-free packaging, making the packaging sustainable, renewable, non-polluting and non-toxic.
To counter the carbon footprint during the manufacturing process, Ecoleaf work in partnership with Treesponsibility to minimize the environmental impact of their products.
This product is Vegan.

A little bit about Suma, the makers of Ecoleaf:
Hi, we are Suma, and we have been supplying natural, responsibly-sourced products since 1977. We’re the UK’s biggest worker’s co-operative; Europe’s largest single-pay employer and we are very proud of these facts. We have been in business for forty years, and are based in a small town in West Yorkshire. Our location may be small and quaint, but our work is not. We stock over 7000 ambient, chilled and frozen products: from canned foods to bodycare, dried foods to household products, we deliver globally, week in, week out.
Here is a little bit more about what’s important to us:
We are 100% vegetarian, we always have been and always will be. Everything from our sweets to our toothbrushes. That means no meat, no fish and no animal derived nasties such as gelatine or rennet. We believe that vegetarian food is healthy for our bodies and is more environmentally sustainable. We also care about animal welfare, and are against animal suffering.
We are not like a traditional business. We are a worker’s co-operative. Owned and managed by our workforce, we are proud to offer equal pay and an equal say in the business for all members. We have a democratic management system that isn’t bound by conventional methods of hierarchy. We collectively share the jobs that need doing, whatever they happen to be.
All of our products and services are responsibly sourced. We are aware that running our business leaves a carbon footprint, so we try our best to offset these omissions through planting trees with Treesponsibility, who have granted us carbon neutral status. We take back packaging from our customers, and where we can’t reuse, we recycle. Our offices and warehouse are fitted with motion sensor lights. We use a hybrid fuel car for customer visits, and we track and route-plan our deliveries to ensure every mile matters.
We are proud to have brought the first organic tinned tomatoes to the UK in the early nineties, and organic tinned sweetcorn to the UK in the mid noughties. We stock organic versions of everything we can, roughly 47% of our overall stock, and are licensees of the Soil Association, celebrating and supporting Organic September annually.
We acknowledge our responsibility towards the growers of the food we sell, and are longstanding licensees of the Fairtrade Foundation. Our commitment to fair trade is held on a belief in a universal right to economic justice, self-empowerment and freedom from exploitation. We stock over 650 Fairtrade certified products, and support Fairtrade Fortnight. We work with a number of Fairtrade suppliers globally, and our warehouse and offices are based in a Fairtrade town.
All of our bodycare, cosmetics and cleaning products are cruelty-free. This means that no animal testing is conducted within the trials, development or creation of the products. Many carry the UK Leaping Bunny cruelty free symbol. Our ranges use naturally-occurring fragrances, have nothing nasty such as chemicals added, and are all vegetarian, with a selection of vegan options also available.
