Paper towels put a drain on the environment and add to your recurring expenses. How can you reduce paper towel consumption at your restaurant? Here are a few quick tips to reduce paper towel usage:
- Invest in quality bar towels – Not only will your staff prefer bar towels to paper towels, but quality bar towels can be washed and reused for years to come.
- Use cloth napkins – Rather than providing paper towels or napkins to patrons, offer the classier option. In case of a spill, your waitstaff can bring a bar towel to clean up.
- Use cloth towels for cleaning – One of the biggest wastes of paper towels occurs when it is time to clean up. Keep some old rags available for when something is really grimy, so you don’t ruin a fine cloth.
- Use hand dryers in the bathrooms – This is where the most paper towels get wasted (and thrown on the floor, and stuffed in the toilet, etc.). A hand dryer may use a little electric, but it will reduce paper waste and expense significantly. You may also end up with cleaner restrooms as a bonus.
