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?

Recycled Toilet Paper Roll Art

Aug 3, 2010

Here is another example of using toilet paper rolls as art. Artist Yuken Teruya uses cardboard toilet paper tubes as the basis for a cut out of a tree, as though the tree is springing into life from the toilet paper roll itself. Intensely detailed branches carved into the cardboard give these sculptures an atmosphere of stillness and beauty.

Toilet Paper Origami Made Easy

Mar 3, 2009

Toilet Paper Origami (also called toilegami) is the origami-style folding of toilet paper, seen in many luxurious hotels, spas, or even institutions of fine dining. In Japan, this form of origami is incredibly popular.

Most of the time, people tend to think of TP origami as the end of a roll of toilet paper taking the form of a triangle, however, some people have gotten even more creative, opting instead to create clamshell or fan shaped designs. Some origami enthusiasts have even go so far as to create flowers, boats, and butterflies at the end of a roll as a display of art form. Here’s how to do one fancy trick that’s sure to spruce up any bathroom:

The Pleated Fold

1.With the toilet paper still attached to the roll, pull out about 2 or 3 squares worth of Toilet Paper and stretch it towards you. Fold raw edge under about ½”.

2.Continue to fold the TP in an up-and-down, accordion fashion. Make at least 7 to 10 folds, the more the better. Compress the pleats into a tight stack.

3.Fold the stack of pleats in half towards you.

4.Squeeze the stack together pressing the creases firmly.

5.Release the stack of pleats and allow the folds to relax. Find the two pleats that are closest to one another (shown with arrow).

6.Expanded view; only two layers shown: Hold the two layers closest to one another and fold the corner to form a small triangle. Fold this corner once more to lock the two halves together.

7.Gently layer the pleated TP onto the roll. Arrange and fluff the TP until you have an inverted fan-like structure.
