Last week Newark Mayor Cory Booker announced budget cut backs on many things, including toilet paper for city employees! Two toilet paper companies based out of New Jersey, Marcal Manufacturing and justtoiletpaper.com, have stepped up to donate toilet paper rolls.
This Thursday, Marcal Manufacturing will pull up in front of City Hall in a tractor trailer and hand out 50,000 rolls of recycled toilet paper! The city employees must only present their city IDs to receive a free roll of bath tissue.
In an interview with NJ.com, Mark Polish, the head of justtoiletpaper.com said, “Isn’t it someone’s right to have toilet paper at work?” His company will set up a donation button on its online site. Customers will be able to to donate Santa Clause toilet paper to city employees with a click of the mouse. Polish said the paper will also help Newark have a clean, happy Christmas in July.
Has the economy affected your toilet paper budget?
