… at least in public restrooms.
A study commissioned by hand dryer manufacturer Dyson says that paper towels and conventional hand dryers produce at least 70% more carbon emissions than Dyson’s own air-driven hand dryer, the Airblade.
But even if true, few will do that calculus. The Dyson Airblade, as cool as it is, costs about $1,600 vs. a conventional hand dryer costing $300 or less vs. paper towels which are dirt cheap… and there are potentially other issues involved. Plus we have no problem with carbon emissions.
It’s too bad that Dyson, which makes terrific but pricey products, can’t figure out a way to make its products more competitive without using junk science to bash competitors.
