A couple weeks ago, exactly 1 day after I got Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper, we were running low on the last roll of toilet paper that had with a tube. My five-year-old daughter happened to be in the bathroom when the roll finally ran out, and for whatever reason, she decided to “throw away” the empty tube.
The problem was that she threw the tube away in the toilet, not the trash can. And then she flushed it. I’m not going to get into the fine details of what happened next, but let’s just say, there were some plumbing issues, and I was a little frustrated. This is just one of the reasons I was excited to stock up on Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper.
We are pretty environmentally friendly around my house, and I make it a point to raise my kids to think about their impact on the environment. One easy, yet innovative way to have a huge and positive impact is to use Scott Tube-Free toilet paper. It is the same toilet paper you have always used and trusted, but it doesn’t have the tube!
As small as the tube may seem, when you think about how much toilet paper your household uses in a given year, and multiply that by the number of households in the U.S., you can start to see that we’re talking about an enormous amount of tubes.
If we all made this simple change, we could save over 17 billion paper tubes from being discarded in the U.S., alone! That is enough to fill the Empire State Building, twice. If you want to get an idea of how much of an impact that your family has, check out Scott Tube-Free and they tell you!
Today is National Toilet Paper Day, and what better way to celebrate than to make the environmentally conscious switch to tube-free toilet paper!
