Scott Naturals Tube-Free Bath Tissue Review and Giveaway

Recently I was asked if I would like to try Kimberly-Clark’s Scott Naturals Tube-Free Bath Tissue. I jumped at the chance to try this new product that not only comes from a great company but just by using it, helps the environment. Scott Brand Naturals Tube-Free Bath Tissue has no inner cardboard tube that needs to be disposed of. My first thought was, how hard is it to throw a little cardboard tube in the recycling bin or more likely for most, the trash can. However, when I received a sample package of the Bath Tissue along with a Product Fact Sheet, I realized just how much this product can benefit the environment.

Here are some facts from the Scott Naturals Tube-Free Bath Tissue Product Fact Sheet:

Today, U.S. households dispose of an estimated 17 billion bath tissue tubes annually, which is equal to:
• Over 160 million pounds of trash
• Enough material to fill more than 250 Boeing 747 airliners
• Enough material to fill the Empire State Building twice
• Equivalent to the weight of more than 350 Statues or Liberty
• Over 1 million miles long (lined end-to-end)
• Circling the earth’s equator over 45 times
• Traveling from the earth’s surface to the moon…more than twice


These totals are astonishing and it makes me stop and think what a huge difference we can make by switching to a tube-free bath tissue. This would alleviate and need to remember to recycle or just take the time to do it! I am so glad I had the opportunity to try this product. Not only is it earth friendly I love the feel of it. It is a perfect blend of softness and strength.

Now it is your turn to try!

Currently Scott Naturals Tube-Free is being tested at select Walmart and Sam’s Club locations in the Northeast U.S. Check your local store and stock up.

You can win it! A lucky winner will receive a 8-pack for yourself to try! Here’s how:

  3. I definitely recycle! And it's good I do, because my building is pretty strict about it. And the City does fine people for not following proper recycling guidelines. Can't afford the fines! LOL :)

  10. Oh yeah ... we recycle or compost just about everything ... in fact, I just realized that I haven't taken the garbage out since the first of the year ... but there hasn't been a need ... nothing goes in there. Here's a tip for those toilet paper tubes (if we're not lucky enough to win the tube-less variety) ... they are great in compost bins. Just shred them up and toss them in ... in a very short time, they'll turn into dark soil! :-)

  13. My DD makes sure we recycle. They talk about it and actually recycle at her school, so she is very insistent that we do it too. We pay the city to come and collect our recycled stuff twice a month. theindy4 at sbcglobal dot net

  14. I do recycle regularly--at home and in school (I'm not too lazy to go a little further to the recycling bin than just throw my bottles into the trash).

  20. I'm already a follower! And you're right, who couldn't use some extra TP. I try to recycle when I can. It actually "hurts my heart" when we don't. My husband is a little harder to convince. Luckily, my city has made the recycling rules a lot less strict now which has encouraged more people to recycle. We try to re-use as much as possible.
