We need to place the argument into discussion that a lot of energy is needed to produce paper towels. That`s before one sees the paper in a restroom.
Educators and their students have a lot on their hands and minds during their day at school. It is therefore utterly important to help to keep students’ hands clean as they return to full-capacity, in-person learning post-COVID. To make it easier, our partner Excel Dryer explains the ABCs of hand hygiene.
A is for Automatic Sensors
The “new normal” post-coronavirus is still evolving, but one thing is for sure: hand hygiene will continue to play a crucial role. When touch can be avoided, so can germs, making touchless solutions—including toilets, sinks, and hand dryers—necessary for all elementary, middle, and high school environments.
B is for Budget Benefits
Schools aren’t just crowded areas, they are crowded areas filled with children and teenagers, which equates to both more paper towel use and more maintenance to keep restrooms clean. Paper towels are surprisingly costly when compared with hand dryers, with a life cycle that includes harvesting from trees, truck transportation, a pulping process, restroom use, and delivery to a landfill.
C is for Customization
Want to show your school spirit? Excel Dryer offers the most cover finishes and options in the industry with Kolorfusion technology, which has been adopted by Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, the New England Patriots, and many more.
D is for Decreased Carbon Footprint
While creating cleaner, more hygienic restrooms, Excel Dryer also works alongside educational facilities to advance the goals of transparency and environmental responsibility. Excel Dryer also conducts a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on their products to see how long they need to operate before going into a landfill. The study determined that the Hand Dryer reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50%–75% when compared to traditional electric hand dryers and paper towels.
