Simpler Living Tip: how to use a paper towel

 Fall's almost here; and whenever we’re out and about, this enjoyable TED Talk offers a tip to help us reduce some of the 13 million pounds of paper towels we all use annually. It’s simple and will save trees, fossil fuel and money also!

After hand washing, just shake your wet hands twelve times; then fold one paper towel to finish drying. Now children will especially enjoy washing their hands.

Thank you, Canon Christine Spalding for sharing this great idea!
