Have you ever stopped to think about just how many tubes of toilet paper Americans go through? 66,000 tubes. Per month? No. Per week? No. 66,000 tubes in just over TWO minutes! That is a ton of toilet paper tubes. What is even more shocking to me is that these tubes are not necessary at all. Of course we can’t go without toilet paper, but the cardboard tube is an unnecessary piece. That is where Scott Tube-Free toilet paper comes in. Scott Tube-Free has a goal to help reduce the number of cardboard tubes we use by encouraging people to toss the tube and use tube-free rolls.
Removing the tube can make a huge impact. Just take a moment to stop and think about how many tubes just your family alone uses in a year. Now multiply that by the millions of families in the world. That is a ton of tubes. By eliminating the unnecessary cardboard tube, Scott Tube-Free toilet paper gives people an easy way to make a change that reduces waste without sacrificing quality. Small steps can have a huge impact on the environment. By making this simple switch to Scott Tube-Free, you can save approximately 150 tubes per year (which is how many the average household uses annually)! We put it to the test. As a family, we switched out all of our toilet paper with Scott Tube-Free bath tissue. Check out our results:
Scott Tube-Free was still soft and comfortable. It was easy to put on the holder and it was just as easy to unroll even without the unnecessary cardboard tube. There was no loss of quality, comfort, or ease of use. The kids had no issues putting on the tube either. They were just as intrigued as I was.
What I did notice, was I didn’t have empty cardboard tubes sitting on the holder to change. When the Scott Tube-Free toilet paper was gone, it was really gone. This mom was happy not only by the impact our family can make on the environment, but also the hassle-free clean up of unnecessary tubes in every bathroom. Nothing to pile up on the floor of the bathroom. SCORE! By making this simple switch to Scott Tube-Free, you can save approximately 150 tubes per year (which is how many the average household uses annually)! And since our family is the non-average with 4 kiddos, we are saving even more each year.
What are you waiting for? Your family can make an impact too by making the switch. Scott Tube-Free can be found at select retailers nationwide and online. Simply visit scottbrand.com/where-to-buy/tube-free-tissue to find a store near you.
