WHAT IS JIMMY TOWEL?
Jimmy Towel is a soft, micro-fiber, quick-drying hand towel that zips into a water-resistant, pocket-sized case you can carry anywhere. The removable lining is machine washable with water-wicking pads for all day use. Jimmy Towel dries quickly when hung open or laid flat.

WHY NOT USE PAPER TOWELS OR HAND DRYERS?
51,000 trees are cut down every day to make paper towels. Manufacturing 100% recycled paper towels is still a big drain on resources for a disposable product. The pulp and paper industry is the 3rd largest industrial producer of global warming pollution. Most paper towels are not recyclable or compostable. 3,000 tons of paper towels go into landfills each day. Traditional hand dryers use even more resources.

WHO IS JIMMY?
In 2011, Alec Ramsey's friend Jimmy shared that to conserve resources he hadn’t used a paper towel in more than a year, opting to dry his hands on his pants instead. Inspired, Ramsey began sewing prototypes for a portable hand towel to help individuals reduce their own paper towel consumption. He called this new invention Jimmy Towel. Alec partnered with local entrepreneur and green enthusiast Lee Johnson and obtained a utility patent and trademarked the Jimmy Towel name.
If successful, the funds raised on Kickstarter will be used to place their first bulk order with ChicoBag.
Risks and challenges
This is our 4th Kickstarter total, and second for Jimmy Towel. We've refined our process each time and always make backer satisfaction our number one priority. You can see it in our comments and updates from previous projects.
The risks this time are minimal. Through ChicoBag we have access to reputable manufacturers. All of the design and prep work is done. We simply need to place our first order. Depending on when we order, there is always a chance of delays in production or shipping. We will do our best to avoid these delays, and will communicate with our backers if they become unavoidable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
