Hand dryers should be placed in all government facilities as an option to dry hands. Hand dryers can cut costs by as much as 90%, when compared to paper towels. Paper towels need continuous refilling and waste removed. The switch would result in thousands of trees being saved per year. Additionally, landfill waste would be reduced as well. Furthermore, to produce the paper towels thousands of gallons of water and chemicals needs to be used. Let us make green an option in the federal government.
