Go Green with Hand Dryers

With all the emphasis on going green to save our planet, I am surprised that paper towels are still being used instead of hand dryers. I wonder if it's just here or if paper towels are still being used elsewhere.

Here's a green fact. Using hand dryers as an alternative to paper towels can save a company up to 90% in operation cost. The change might be one small step for us but accumulated, it's one giant step for Earth.

    I find paper towels more useful than hand dryers as it does the job faster. Imagine a queue of people in the restroom all waiting in line to use the hand dryer.

    With regards to khengsiong's question, recycling consumes energy too. So saving the trees but at the expense of energy.
