I'm old enough to remember when such blowers were considered bad for the environment because of the electricity they used, whereas paper came from a renewable resource.
If only blowers are available, though, I like the Dyson Airblades. They're cool looking, and that blast of air seemingly comes from jet engines. It's almost like getting a little hand massage :-)
But uh oh, maybe they're not so good for us:
Dyson Airblade hand-driers spread 60 times more germs than standard air dryers, and 1,300 times more than standard paper towels, according to research published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology.What's a greenie to do?
