Thinking Green.

I enjoy using air dryers because they make me feel good about myself. The other day I was in the bathroom thinking, "I'm a good person. I'm saving trees by using the air dryer." I smiled and savored the self-righteous moment. Just then, a man exited a bathroom stall and walked out the door behind me.


He saved paper, electricity, and water.

A Harvard man and a Yale man are at the urinal. They finish and zip up. The Harvard man proceeds to the sink to wash his hands, while the Yale man immediately makes for the exit.

The Harvard man says, "At Hah-vahd they teach us to wash our hands after we urinate."

The Yale man replies, "At Yale they teach us not to piss on our hands."

for maximum efficiency it is good to avoid flushing when possible also.

(i generally wash my hands but do not use dryers or towels, though if forced to pick one i will use towels because dryers are unnnnsanitary! there is actually a mall around here that honest to god provides cloth towels at the sinks with little laundry baskets underneath to throw them in after usage.)
