Offices Can Make Their Own Toilet Paper?

Jun 11, 2009

Did you ever think that next to your copiers and printers you’d find a toilet paper machine? Thanks to Japanese ingenuity, a new machine is letting offices turn their paper waste into toilet paper as a better way to utilize resources and recycle paper.

Tokyo-based Nakabayashi offers everything from bookbinding services, child car seats and office products, but its newest venture into toilet paper has audiences around the world excited for this eco-friendly and resourceful TP maker.

So how does it work? Well, the toilet paper machine is able to produce two rolls per hour from around 1,800 sheets (or 7.2kg) of used A4-sized paper, which would have usually been just thrown away. Right now there are few details, but all we know is that it’s set to be released in August in Japan with a price tag of about $95,000.

So what do you think? Would you be willing to recycle those extra copies to fill your bathroom needs?

Until then, remember you can get all of your office’s toilet paper needs from

    This is really awesome! The price is the only thing I could see hindering businesses in the US from investing in it.

    If it’s 95K to purchase this, what is the average pay-off rate? As this looks completely fascinating and eco-friendly (as opposed to recycling the old fashion way) why is this worth the money?

    What a crazy invention. I read something similar the other day but instead of creating toilet paper it turned scrap paper into pencils.

    This is a great idea on an ecological level. But hygiene-wise … I would never dream of using this kind of toilet paper! Just an opinion … :)

    Hah, what if it was just as soft and sanitary as a roll of Charmin?

    Wow! What a neat invention. Is it sanitary? What if the paper wastes have ink on them, is it still recycled? I would probably want to know the process in which they recycle it before ever using it.

    Sounds like a great idea to me! But $95K is a little too high according to my checkbook 😉 Those Japanese inventors are always up to something! Love it!

    Sounds like a good idea! But if you think about it too much, it gets a bit disturbing. Aren’t tissue papers — considering what we tend to use them for — supposed to be clean?

    Do you know if they ever went through with this? I’m all for helping the environment, I think if it really works (and doesn’t chaff the gentle areas) then it’s a great idea! :)

    Looking forward for everyone to adopt these new echo-friendly solution. Japanese are on the cutting edge. At the beginning it could be hard but I’m sure that, once it takes root, it will be graifying.
