Today is the 25th birthday of the Kimberly Clark innovation, Jumbo Roll Tissue (JRT) Toilet Paper. This is significant because jumbo toilet paper has contributed to restroom culture, found in airports, restaurants, stadiums and movie theaters. These extra big rolls of toilet paper reduce the need for servicing bathrooms to replace supply.
When the jumbo-sized roll was first introduced in 1985, most public restrooms only offered single toilet paper rolls, similar to what people use at home. JRT changed all that by providing the equivalent in length of 10 standard toilet paper rolls in one giant roll.
