Tubeless Toilet Paper

Tube free toilet paper- that’s something I can really get behind. Do we really need a cardboard tube to support our toilet paper rolls? Well we’re about to find out (and I mean the general “we”, the Craziest Gadgets team is not heading off to the test “office” to try it out, maybe after dinner) because Scott toilet paper is going tubeless. In the United States 17 billion toilet paper tubes produced annually account for 160 million pounds of trash so that our toilet paper can stay in a perfectly round formation while on the roll. What a waste. A special winding technique will be used to keep the TP rolled up. I guess the kids will have to use paper towel tubes for their pretend telescopes now.

  1. This is wrong. It makes millions of handicap accessible toilet paper dispensers useless. These dispensers have no spindle. Instead, it has spring-loaded triangular ears that hold the tube up. Lift the roll into place. Lift the tube to remove it.
