Waste

One paper towel dispenser creates 1,800 pounds of waste per year, waste that cannot be recycled thank to the short fibers typically used in paper towel processing. For c-fold towels, that equals a stack of towels 82 feet high; for roll towel that would create a continuous path stretching 25 miles.

Cleanliness

Paper towels don’t always end up in the waste basket. Many end up on the floor, creating a messy and unsightly restroom for users. By removing paper towels, the Jet Towel® keeps the floor clean form paper towel mess and eliminates the concern of paper towels crammed in toilets. With the Jet Towel®, there is also no concern about washing your hands only to find an empty dispenser.
