Good news for the environment. Bad news for lots of hamsters and gerbils. ;)

Good news and good to see someone thinking of other options. I'm with sharon wardle though, why are they going to the landfill and not recycled? I know that we are discouraged from using them in craft projects for health reasons, but recycling should be okay. Mind you, the article claims the pulp and paper industry isn't that clean anyway, so lets hope the tubeless rolls take off.

There has been a massive commercial campaign of this product.

I already use this product to the dismay of my cats. But they'll adjust.
Maybe this'll slow companies like APP from damaging habitats - one can hope.

The article says that Scott kept the price in its normal range, and offset costs by the savings on the cardboard rolls. But I do my math when shopping, and the cost is much more. But it's worth the lives this may change. With fingers crossed.

I'd buy it just to piss off the Koch Brothers' Georgia-Pacific brands (Northern, Angel Soft).

Interesting,but this is going to truly displease the cat that owns me, she makes a kitty toy out of these and whacks them across the house. Later, these are recycled when she get bored with them.

So far, the butterflies are green and blue again. Happy Labour Day, we celebrate it here as well.

In Finland the biggest toilet paper producer uses tubes made of easily dissolving material.They are called Fulsh and Go and you just fush them into the toilet at the same time you flush it anyway.The disslove at once.
If you buy other brands, you can recycle the tubes together with milk and juice packages.Every apartment house has recycling container for these. Every area has recycling containers for cardboard for anyone to use on the street also.
But of course there are lazy people anyway who just throw these in trash...

thank you Christeen - took the pledge, noted & shared...this is a great idea to remove the tubes, recycle all tubes after the cats play with them
