  • Air Beats Paper Hands Down

    Jul 23, 2010

    "Going green" seems to be everywhere these days, but it's more than just a slogan or a fad; it's something we should all strive for. Sustainability is the main focus of the going green campaign; sustainability is about using more recyclable materials and renewable resources while reducing waste. One way Rock Island Arsenal is trying to become more sustainable is by replacing paper towels in restrooms with air hand dryers. On the surface this may seem like a less sustainable solution because electricity will be used to power the hand dryers, however, automatic hand dryers use 90 percent less energy than that which is needed to produce paper towels. The Arsenal currently uses about 18,000 rolls of paper towels per year which is the equivalent of about 7,500 cubic feet of waste sent to landfills. By using air hand dryers the Installation will reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, and also reduce the costs associated with it.
