Why are Ora Towels round?
It all started when Oday, our founder, made a simple observation; when using paper towels the corners are rarely used – so why have them? We thought it was quite wasteful so set about seeing if we could come up with a new design which reduced unnecessary waste.
We believe Ora towels strike the right balance between strength and absorbency. Being versatile, they are strong enough when wet and soft enough to wipe a child's face.
Is your packaging recyclable?
All aspects of Ora’s packaging are recyclable. In fact our pulp bases are made using industrial paper waste.
Are Ora Household Towels recyclable?
As Ora Household Towels are made from paper, they are recyclable. However, it is important to be aware that any paper which is very dirty cannot be recycled by most recycling facilities.
Are your plastic bases recyclable?

Why do you charge postage?
Unfortunately, as a small British business we do not yet have the scale to be able to offer free delivery and still be a commercially viable operation. However, it is a subsidised postal charge in order to deliver the best value possible.
Can I get next day delivery?
At the moment we are unable to offer next day delivery but as we develop our range and grow, we hope to be able to add this as an option soon.
