Zero Waste Program

 

Linoto Zero Waste Program initiative

 

At Linoto, we are deeply committed to minimizing our impact on the environment. To further support the Linoto Environmental Policy, we have instituted the Linoto Zero Waste Program initiative. The goal is to minimize fabric waste to less than 2% across all product lines. The following products are made all or entirely from the unusable sections of linen fabric from Linoto products such as linen sheets, towels, duvet covers and pillowcases.

Linoto linen boxer shorts:

Made  from recovered and leftover Linoto fabric. Our linen underwear offers the same cool, dry, year-round comfort and durability of our linen sheets. Even better, these linen boxer shorts become softer and more comfortable with every wash! Since 2010, Linoto has sold thousands of pairs of Linen boxer shorts and diverted thousands of scraps of linen from going into a landfill.

House Helper Treeless Linen Towels:

Made from the unusable sections of linen we use to make sheets, duvet covers, tablecloths and curtains. These linen towels are strong, absorbent and incredibly useful household helpers. Size and color availability will vary but all towels measure approximately 15" square. The towels are an eco-friendly and economical paper towel alternative made entirely from biodegradable natural linen. Consider that the average household spends $250-$300 per year on paper towels which contributes to the destruction of more than 50,000 trees per day. Here are just a few of the uses:

  • Dry dishes
  • Dry fruits and vegetables
  • Serve breads and pastries
  • Use as dinner napkins
  • Use as place mats
  • Cover cooling baked goods
  • Cover exposed foods
  • Clean up spills
  • Line the refrigerator and freezer
  • Clean floors and baseboards
  • Use as a handkerchief or tissue
  • Use as a hiking and camping towel
  • Take to the gym
  • Take for a run
  • Use as rags cleaning rags
  • Use for pet baths
  • Cleaning dog paws
  • Great as an inexpensive gift

Linoto Linen coaster sets:

Thick linen coasters provide an absorbent and soft landing for your cups and glasses. These stylish coasters are 100% natural, durable, and machine washable. 

Open call for partnerships.

Linoto is looking to partner with like-minded business who care about the environment and may have a second use for linen fabric scraps for building composites, children’s clothing, etc.
