Cornholio would be proud

I was digging around in storage not too long ago and came across a couple old cassette tapes. They blew my son's mind, all he knows are digital tracks and CDs. Apparently Kimberly-Clark, the company that makes toilet paper under the Scott brand, is going to make that brown cardboard tube inside your TP something that future generations will look at with wonder.

The company has unveiled a new type of TP that has no tube inside. That will make the TP greener since there will be less cardboard tossed into the trash and you won't have to pick the tubes up from around your house if your kids are like mine and tend to make spyglasses out of them.

According to estimates by the company, TP tubes alone add 160 million pounds of trash to landfills each year and 17 billion TP tubes are produced each year. This new TP sounds like a winner, unless you are the dude that makes those TP tubes.
