Americans use 13 billion pounds of paper towels every year. That’s a lot of trash. Here Joe Smith shows you how you can reduce that by 571,230,000 pounds by using just one paper towel to dry your hands.
It’s just a 4 minute video, and quite entertaining, but if you don’t have time to watch it, here are the instructions.
1. SHAKE – shake your hands 12 times (12 apostles, 12 eggs in a dozen, or the largest number that’s just one syllable)
2. FOLD – fold the paper towel in half and dry your hands with it.
I tried it on my last business trip, and it really works! The best thing is that I actually got my hands dryer using his instructions than I ordinarily do when I use too many paper towels.
