TED talk : how to save trees by using fewer paper towels.

    Sometimes I find things on the net that make me think.  In this case, this short  talk made me think about washing my hands in public washrooms.  I confess to being on the the guys that stepped up to the towel dispenser and automatically grabbed three or four towels. 

   I watched this video and tried out his shake and fold method.  You really only need one paper towel, and that means fewer trees cut down and much less processing of wood fiber.  

   It is a small thing, but it is also an easy thing.
