I purchased these for our staff restrooms as well as the patron restrooms in the lobby of our business. Obviously, I do not see "single use" as a bad thing since this is for restroom hand-drying. It is also okay that the paper is brown, because I don't think people really care if the paper is white or paper-bag colored, just as long as it dries. The rolls are long-lasting, are wound tightly on the spool. I have no complaints about the price, and will keep this item on my list of regular things to order.
