Earth Day post, I've opted to post a couple of environmentally-focused blog entries (one here and one here). You can add today's post to that Earth-loving mix.
I saw this TED Talk last month and was thoroughly impressed by the hand drying technique! I've been drying my hands (in public settings only; I use a towel to dry my hands at home) using this method ever since I saw the talk. I must say that it really does work; hands are dry with only one measly piece of paper towel. Might I add that it seems that most public bathrooms that I've visited have replaced paper towel with electronic hand dryers. Not sure which is better from an energy stand point... looks like I need to do some research!
