Paper Towel Hand Drying


Paper towel-based hand drying utilizes paper products to facilitate the absorption of water from a user's hands after hand washing. Different paper products with varying levels of recycled content may be used, such as bleached, semi-bleached, or natural. The choice is key to this product's sustainability.

Implementation Tips:

  • Use paper towels with high levels of recycled content
  • Place a compost bin near the exit for those using towels to open the door
  • Consider local regulations to determine suitability in green building programs
