This goes without saying that paper is good for the environment and therefore, many people and companies which are trying to produce these and are manufacturing giving campaigns about these and are debating whether the hand dryers should be used instead of using the paper hand towels. Paper hand towels provide you a sustainable method. But there are some things which you should know about these before you invest in these or choose over these.
One study has found that people do not wash their hands long enough to destroy all the germs, bacteria and viruses from their hand and this is the reason when they use the hand dryer these viruses and bacteria still stay on the hand. But with the use of the paper hand towels in nz, these are wiped away and therefore, these are proven to be more hygienic and also the rubbing and the friction from the paper helps in killing some of the bacteria.

Paper hand towel are waste and these will end up in landfill which means that these cannot be recycled because of the reason that these are last in the chain of the paper products and because of that the paper that is used in the making of these are already recycled several times that these cannot be recycled again and another reason is that the fibres of the paper in the paper hand towels are very thin and short that these cannot be used again and this is the reason that there can be limited production of the paper hand towels.
Decomposition is not environment friendly:
The natural decomposition of the paper produces the methane gas which is dangerous for the environment if exceeds a certain ration and most of the times paper hand towels are disposed by closing these in the plastic bags and this also adds to the damaging chemicals of the environment and all this adds to the global warming.Continue Reading
