How to Use a Paper Towel

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.

Here’s the link for folks reading On Pasture on an iPad or Tablet.

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.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
