HankyBook was inspired with a specific goal to steer people towards a non-disposable culture, where reusables are once again cherished and where we value our environment.
Therefore we strive to make our products from genuinely eco-friendly materials using the most sustainable practices. All HankyBooks are made of 100% certified organic cotton. HankyBooks are sewn by hand in Southern California, ensuring that our products do not need to be delivered across large distances and are made with fair labor practices.
We use organic cotton because cotton is one of the most pesticide and insecticide- heavy crops in the world. In growing organic cotton, no insecticide, pesticide or chemical fertilizers are used, improving the health of the environment as well as the people working in the fields.
You can save a lot of trees, water and energy by buying a HankyBook instead of disposable paper tissues. If every household in the United States replaced just one box of virgin fiber facial tissues (175 sheets) with 100% recycled ones (or a reusable alternative like HankyBooks), we could save 163,000 trees.
