new study shows most environmentally friendly way to dry hadsAustin, Texas:  A new study, commissioned by hand dryer manufacturer Dyson, shows that its AirBlade cold air system is the most environmentally friendly way of drying hands, according to an article in GreenBiz.com.

The most startling thing about the study isn’t that Dyson rates their hand dryers well above other methods– but just how non-green paper hand towels and standard hot air hand dryers really are.  

In fact, according to the study, standard warm air hand dryers rank at the bottom of the list.

Seem confusing?  It probably is.  

But as a green organization, isn’t it time to talk to your vendors to see how eco-friendly your restrooms are..and take appropriate action to reduce your carbon footprint?  Between the hand dryers, sinks and toilets, there are probably sufficient areas for you to study your options and make plans for a greener 2012.

By being vigilant, you will continue to uncover areas that can be improved at your office.

If you are to continue on your goal to reduce energy consumption by 10% each year, your rest rooms are a good place to start.

Here’s to a greener tomorrow, today.
