With Earth Day just a few weeks behind us, we are really trying to step up our game with being “green”. Our name is Simple “Green” Moms after all! We recently got an opportunity from Scott to test out their new product and we think its pretty cool.
Now in my house I like to think we are pretty good about recycling. And that includes toilet paper tubes from traditional toilet paper. But recycling an already made product isn’t nearly as good as not having a need for it in the first place. The people at Scott have realized that very thing and come up with a new line of toilet paper that is tube-less. I mean, how smart is that?? Think about it. Why does toilet paper have tubes anyway? How many millions of tubes need to be dealt with every year? As a matter of fact the number is a staggering 17 billion tubes annually in the US alone. That is enough toilet paper tubes to fill up the Empire State building. Twice. Crazy, right? Check out this video that shows the incredible impact that switching to Scott Tube-Free can have on the environment. The stunt uses 66,000 tubes, which is the amount of tubes Americans go through in a little over 2 minutes. What else can you do with 66,000 tubes? check out Roman’s idea for all these tubes…
Scott Tube-Free toilet paper is a pretty genius product that eliminates the need for the cardboard tube (which has been an unnecessary part of toilet paper for more than 100 years), therefore eliminating literally billions of cardboard tubes each year. Best of all, it unrolls like any other toilet paper, so making the switch allows you to reduce waste without sacrificing quality. This was one of my concerns, the fact that it might not work the way it does with a tube, but I tried it on a few different types of holders and there is no difference. I guess only difference is is that there is no tube to recycle when the roll runs out. This unassuming little change gives users an easy yet effective way to reduce the amount of cardboard you consume.

Scott Brand urges consumers to “toss the tube for good” and we couldn’t agree more.
