[GreenYes] air hand dryers vs paper towel
Greetings from NZ!

Would anyone have facts, suggestions, studies, or contacts to help me
determine whether there is a net environmental benefit to using air hand
dryers in bathrooms (modern units, low power) vs paper roller towel (35%
pre-consumer recycled fibre content)?

The paper towel cannot currently be composted (health issues).

My understanding is that the air dryers are the preferable option from an
environmental perspective.

Many thanks,
