Not a green bandwagon, mind you, but the “green” trend. Oh, never mind. Just know that the next time you use an RSF towel to wipe the sweat off your fevered brow during spin class, you are helping the green movement.

That’s right, folks–that day you were waiting for is finally here. No, we’re not talking about the release of the latest Twilight movie (which you were only going to see ironically) or that long-awaited coupon for a free bagel. We’re talking the RSF is now washing its towels in an “eco-friendly herbal detergent free of harmful chemicals.” The detergent goes by the intimidating, vaguely Scandinavian name of Vaska.

Vaska just got awarded “champion” status by the EPA’s Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative, and it will also save water because it needs fewer rinses. And in case you weren’t convinced by all that, the good writers of the press release want to inform you that it is used by the San Francisco Giants AND one of the productions of “Wicked.”

We’re betting that’s the only thing those two organizations have in common, so feel free to jump on this bandwagon. Now off you go to the RSF. Sweat to your heart’s content.
