I remember going for walks with my son when he was little. He wanted to pick up all of the trash along the side of the trail. At such a young age, it bothered him to see the litter and he wanted to clean up everywhere we went. It was an opportunity for us to teach each other how important it is for us to help the environment and be good stewards of the earth.
Picking up trash along the side of the road might not seem like much to some, but it is in these little things and small changes that we can help the environment. Finding ways to reduce my family’s waste is a project I took on a while back. Buying Scott Tube-Free is one of the many simple changes we have made. I am so glad that Scott Tube-Free has asked me to partner with them again. I am such a fan of this product and buy it regularly.
For the most part, I think we all want to do things that are more environmentally friendly. I try to make sure we are not buying too many plastic water bottles and other things like toilet paper tubes that fill landfills. The fewer bags of trash I set out by the curb, the better.
Other small changes I have made include buying energy efficient appliances, when it’s time for an upgrade. Avoiding the use of harmful household chemicals. Turning the lights and televisions off when leaving a room. Unplugging the coffee maker after we use it. It might not seem like much, but these simple things really do make a big impact on the environment.
I know that we all get busy. It can be hard to fit these types of changes into our daily routine. What if there was a simple way to help the environment that requires no extra effort from you at all? Just grabbing a different package of toilet paper when you walk down the aisle at the store. Scott Tube-Free has made a simple and more environmentally friendly option available to us.
It’s the same great Scott product you have always loved, only without the cardboard tube. By simply removing the tube from your the toilet paper, your personal impact on the planet is huge. It doesn’t get any easier than that folks.
Scott Tube-Free has made a simple change that is making a big difference, by removing the toilet paper roll from the inside. Removing the tube helps to cut down on 17 billion tubes used annually in the U.S. That is a lot of tubes! Want to get a small idea of what that looks like?
Recently Scott Tube-Free teamed up with a YouTube prankster to show what a small portion, only 66,000 tubes, looks like. 66,000 tubes is the amount of tubes that Americans go through in just 2 minutes. 2 MINUTES! That is kind of crazy.
The tube isn’t what makes cushiony soft toilet paper. It also isn’t needed to make the paper unroll. So what is Scott Tube-Free missing? Just the tube. By switching to Scott Tube-Free, you can save about 150 tubes per year, which is the amount the average household uses each year. Scott Tube-Free can be found at select retailers nationwide and online.
I know that some people use those tubes for craft time with the kids, but how many tubes do you need? Cutting a paper towel tube works perfectly. Guess what? You can still craft with Scott Tube-Free! My clever niece, Maddie, made this pretty loop flower for me.

If something so simple can make such a major impact, it is something worth doing. Just making a change of removing the tube can make such a huge impact on the planet. Once you get the image of how many tubes Americans use in just 2 minutes, you’ll see why going tube free is a simple change you should make.
