Celebrate International Towel Day! 15% off today!

Today is International Towel Day! To Celebrate we're offering 15% off our Bamboo & Organic Cotton Bath Towel Collections for one day only!

Towel Day is celebrated every 25th of May as a tribute by fans of the late author Douglas Adams. On this day, fans carry a towel with them to demonstrate their love for the books and the author, as referenced in Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Adams's death on 11May 2001.

"A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough" ~ Douglas Adams - Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Towel Day is a pretty big deal all over the world! Check out all the events people from all over the world are holding to celebrate International Towel Day here.

And here are some pics of all of us in the Eureco office embracing the spirit of the day!

Luckily it was an exceptionally cold day in Sydney, so we were all more than happy to accessorise with a towel for a little added warmth for the day!

Happy Towel Day! Until next year, happy travels!
