In my daughter’s school in Phuket, there is a sign above the paper towel dispenser in the loos that say, ‘Use one sheet only’.
Good idea! We often don’t think about the effects of paper towels on the environment. They are not plastic, are they? And don’t they biodegrade?
In America, 517,230,000 pounds of paper towels are used each year. Here’s an interesting (and engaging) talk by Joe Smith for TED. Definitely worth watching! And please share with your children too….it’s fun to do together!
