WHY Paper towels release methane in landfills. Dryers use CO2-emitting energy. We will reduce ghg emissions by drying our hands back at the table.
HOW When we're out to dinner, we can use the napkin already waiting for us at our table to dry our hands after using the restroom.

Subscriber Kim N. pointed out that some packaging is useful in preserving food, which reduces food waste.
Our take: Totally true. But, we should be pressuring companies to find innovative alternatives to soft plastic packaging. We can do this by opting for items not in plastic, but then putting them in a reusable container at home to help preserve.
