Toweling Off in the Green

March 30, 2009

If you’re a small business owner, trying to do your best to greenify, what’s the right choice for bathroom towels?

Hand towels made of paper always seem like they could be messy, expensive, and require lots of our precious trees in their manufacture.  But many people prefer paper towels because they like to be able to use the towel to open the door and let themselves out without touching the handle. 

At the same time, electricity uses natural resources in its production as well, and it seems to dry people’s skin out, which many people don’t like.  These days, hand dryers do have sensors, so they shut down when they are no longer needed.  But which is the right choice to Greenify?

It may depend on your choice of paper towels and how you handle the refuse. If recycled towels are available, that’s always best.  And if the used towels can be recycled, then that makes things even better.  The carbon footprint of your restroom decreases even more.

But in some areas, it may be difficult to get recycled towels or have the means to recycle the used paper out and away from landfills.  In that case, the right choice may be electric hand dryers.

It’s best to check your own situation and keep in mind how much use your restroom gets during the day.

Sigh.  Some of us remember when all hand towels were recycled.  They were cloth and came on a roller that had to be serviced by a person traveling a route.  Those days are mostly gone, but sometimes it’s fun to remember. 

Just remember to Greenify as best you can and we’ll all think back on these days with a smile.
