Toilet tissue without the cardboard roll in the middle. It still looks like a regular roll. Not sure how they do it. Maybe with thicker paper. So have you seen this product advertized? Have you used it? How do they keep the toilet tissue in a roll to keep it's shape, and to have a hole to put it on the center thing for the bathroom toilet tissue holder? Or if you haven't seen it advertised, or bought it, what new products have you seen? Where did you see them(magazine, tv, in the store, etc)? Would you use the new product? Do you recycle the center rolls or do you just throw them away? My friend uses them. She makes little drums for a Christmas tree with them and scraps of material and even old leather. If this trend catches on, will this affect you? In a positive way like less trash or a negative way like you will have one less thing that you can use to make things?

Wow I wonder how they do that as well. It seems like it would be impossible for the roll to hold together when it gets low and starts to loose its shape. I've had to remove the inner cardboard tube when I needed it quick for a craft and it works fine until the roll gets almost used up then the toilet paper just sort of sags on the roll. If they figure out a way to make the toilet paper rolls work without the cardboard insert then I say thats great less waste going to the landfills.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how this works and if it works. What craft projects do you use them for?

No, I haven't seen anything like that, but it is a wonderful idea..And no, I don't recycle the toilet paper rolls.. But I do the paper towel rolls..Probably because the recycling bin is in the kitchen and I remember to recycle the paper towel ones..

We can reuse them like for Christmas ornaments, but we can only recycle corrigated cardboard that isn't from China. So since that isn't corrigated. . .. You can recycle a lot more cardboard than we can. Take care.

If it does, then maybe they all will do it?

I do recycle mine, the city picks up even those things, along with plastics 1-6, and of course, glass and steel...

They only pick up corrigated cardboard here and only if it isn't from China. So they don't recycle much cardboard. Only 1 and 2 plastics, all the glass bottles, aluminum and steal.
