This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scott Tube-Free. All opinions are 100% mine.
Did you know that by simply removing the inner tube from the typical toilet paper roll can help reduce the roughly 17 billion paper tubes discarded annually in the U.S. These little tubes do have a bigger impact than people may think. To produce these tubes resources like trees are consumed along with space in landfills and recycling centers to deal with them. While this may seem like something of little importance think about the long term impact of the billions of paper tubes used around the world.
Going by these simple figures above, our family could reduce our discarding of more than 150+ tubes a year. This would make a huge difference in the long run if more families all decided to go tube free. So many little changes like turning off lights, shutting water off completely when not in use, and my husbands favorite involves doing rounds around the house every so often to make sure anything not in use is not wasting utilities.
Our family has a list of efforts we make to reduce our impact and to also teach our kids about being more environmentally conscious It is not just about nature that is impacted, but the actual land around us. While we may want to focus only on saving animals or trees, its important to prevent littler and waste that ends up on our streets, waterways, lands, and other places.
I like that when the roll is out there’s no mess to clean up. As far as cleaning up after our kids this is one step I won’t miss. Plus I can feel good knowing that we’re making one more step to make the world a better place. That’s also important to family so we like that we’re doing even more to live more sustainably.
And with 4 ladies in our home, we go through a lot of toilet paper. And with all this toilet paper use, we find ourselves picking up a lot of empty cardboard tubes that fill up our recycling container in our home. By using Scott’s tube free, we don’t have this problem anymore. Dad doesn’t have to constantly remind the kids to pick up their empty tubes.
Scott Tube Free also teamed up with a YouTube prankster, to demonstrate how the toilet paper tubes we use have a big impact on our world. Check out this video –
Make a difference starting now. Do the little things you know will change your behaviors and actions, even if you think they may have no impact on the world. Its about becoming smarter about the world around us and realizing that just because we may discard things out of sight, that doesn’t mean they do not exist. Lets cut back on waste!
What’s one way simple way that you keep your bathroom mess free?
