Striving for Environmental Excellence

World Dryer is in the business of making a positive impact on our people and planet. Our innovative solutions are designed to minimize paper use, prevent waste and help customers like you meet sustainability goals. 

The Problem With Paper

Paper towel production and consumption requires a great amount of energy and contributes to deforestation and landfill waste.

One ton of paper uses:

  • 17 mature trees
  • 7,000 gallons of water
  • 3 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 2 barrels of oil
  • 4,100 kWh of electricity

This is enough energy to power the average American home for five months! 
Although paper towels can be made from recycled paper, they cannot be recycled again. 

How to Save Energy and Waste

World Dryer hand dryers use less energy to manufacture and produce less CO2 pollution than processing paper towels. They also require minimal monitoring and maintenance, unlike paper towel wastebaskets. By giving your customers this paperless option, you’re contributing to a cleaner environment.
