Anything made of material or fabrics is a textile and should not be placed in your general or recycling bin.
Tea towels like other textiles should be placed in a clothing bank for recycling.
We need to keep clothes and textiles out of landfill because it helps to reduces greenhouse gases.
If you have NEW, unwanted or barely used items these can be donated to charity. Old tea towels also make great dusters when cleaning or doing DIY around the house.
