Every day, the United States generates over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste – and to produce every one of those tons, 17 trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are consumed, contributing to deforestation, water pollution and global warming. It’s an ugly situation, but if you want to do something about it, now is your chance. Inhabitat is teaming up with PeopleTowels to challenge eco-minded designers everywhere to enter our Stop the Paper Towels! Design Contest.

We’re looking for clever, compelling green-themed graphic designs that can be printed onto a reusable cloth PeopleTowel to open people’s eyes to the situation and encourage the world to cut paper towel waste. The grand prize winner of this competition will receive $500 and 10% of royalties on every towel sold and the winning design will be published on and our future Inhabitat t-shirts! So what are you waiting for? Hit the big blue button below and get your design in it to win it!
