Assiniboine park Conservancy case study
"The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers really fit the sustainability message we’re trying to promote. We’ve seen a big decrease in the amount of paper used in the washrooms and visitors and staff love them."
Since 1904, Assiniboine Park has been the centre of Winnipeg’s outdoor leisure scene. Today it’s a conservancy with more than four million visitors a year – home to a zoo, gardens, playground and museum, as well as being a hub for community events.
The park was using paper towels in their washrooms. But that didn’t fit with their robust environmental program to reduce paper and minimize waste.

Why choose Dyson for business
- 1 Dry time determined using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF P335 using a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.
- 2 The environmental impact of electrical appliances and paper towels was measured by Carbon Trust. The calculations were produced using the software Footprint Expert Pro, based on product use over 5 years and using weighted averages of individual countries of use.
