Waste Nothing


Public toilets often use paper towels for hand drying. It is very easy to use fewer or even none at all. By quickly shaking your hands over the sink, you can remove almost all of the water. Joe Smith’s short video How To Use One Paper Towel shows this along with folding the single paper towel to get the most out of it.

You can also use your own cloth (or even just your pants) to take care of the little remaining moisture instead of using a paper towel.

This applies to Used paper towels.
