I spend a lot of time in airports, and in order to "kill time" I read a lot. Mostly books, but occasionally I pick up some of the news papers, that the airports/airlines offer for free, and often one article stands out.

WOW!! From Monday apprarently you can get the tubless toilet paper rolls in Walmarts and Sam's Club stores in the Northwest - and just imagine how much waste that could be eliminated if all toilet paper rolls were like these.
I love those kind of initiatives as 1) we do not have endless resources available and 2) way too many resources end up at landfills as waste. A lot of people already recyce a lot of cardboard - but how many recycle the cardboard tube in toiletpaper rolls, when it has run out of the toiletpaper?
