Scrummi Case Study
Is selling towels innovative? Is throwing away a product after a single use sustainable?
Rob Cooper has been selling towels for 4 years, his business has shown huge growth and Rob is now joined by Gil and Tom, together they form Scrummi.
Scrummi produce a range of high quality, eco-friendly, disposable towels that are distributed nationwide. Initially you may think that using a product once and then throwing it away is a whole heartedly unsustainable practice. How about when that product biodegrades at a rapid rate or can be recycled the same as paper and cardboard? If there is no washing of the towels then there is no pollutant moved to the water system, in fact there is no water involved at all. In addition to this the average cotton towel takes a lot of carbon to produce and maintain, without mentioning the amount of pesticides used in the whole process. Scrummis towel range on the other hand is produced from fast growing renewable sources, eucalyptus and cedar make up the fibers which store the carbon used to produce the product. When the towels degrade that carbon is returned to the soil and grown into more towels.
So is selling disposable towels eco-friendly? Yes. Is selling towels innovative? In the case of Scrummi, definitely.
