Kimberly Clark Toilet Paper Goes Tube Free

Oct 27, 2010

Scott Tube Free Toilet PaperNext month, Kimberly-Clark is unveiling a new product for retail stores. Coreless toilet paper in household roll sizes!

Of course, there are already coreless toilet paper rolls sold, generally wholesale for businesses and high volume toilet paper dispensers.

Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper will be sold at Walmart and Sam’s Club stores throughout the Northeast.

Why go coreless?

An estimated 17 billion cardboard tubes are thrown away each year, enough to circle the Earth’s equator more than 45 times, as reported in USA Today. Some people use the cardboard tubes from toilet paper for arts and craft projects, but most end up in the trash. The new tube free toilet paper may appeal to environmental groups.

Our own Toilet Paper King, Kenn Fischburg, said that some toilet paper cardboard tubes actually end up flushed down the toilet. In an interview with AOL News, he said,

You’d be surprised at how many people clog up toilets with the cardboard tubes. You run out of paper and, out of anger, shove the tube in the toilet, or people will do that as a prank.

The tube free toilet paper rolls will retain their shape without the core and still fit on standard toilet paper dispenser spindles.

Are you going to go coreless? Or do you reuse the cardboard for other uses?

    i think using the tubes in art and craft is better idea then just wasting it by flushing it

    I agree- Reusing is always a better choice!

    If using coreless is necessary,I’ll go for it.I don’t mind anyway about the tube,just another waste of paper if you ask me.

    Very cool and very eco-friendly! So how does it hold the shape without it caving in before it hits the spindle? Are the inner bits of the toilet paper harder to hold the round shape?

    I never realized that it was that much wasted cardboard and paper. I swore I had Scott TP at our house a month or two ago, and that there was a tube in it. Did they not stick to it?

    Only the specific Tube Free Scott Toilet Paper will not have tubes. There are still other types of Scott being sold with tubes.

    Oh no..what’s going to happen when we do our arts and crafts day? I think this is a great idea to save on waste, but those tubes were so innovative! Do you think that the other toilet brands will jump on this bandwagon?

  10. Molly - May 4th, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    It’s a hard thing to decide. I think that most companies are going to keep the regular cardboard tubes for now.

    I have yet to see any of these core-less TPs. It’s probably because I’m not looking out for them. I don’t mind giving it a try, because to be honest, I rarely ever use those cardboard tubes for anything else. Maybe in kindergarten, but not since then.

    I haven’t really used the cardboard for anything either, I think these coreless rolls could really be onto something! I always wondered what we needed that silly cylinder of cardboard for anyway.
