Sixteen billion toilet paper rolls, the cardboard inside, are discarded each year in the US. I am making it my personal responsibility to discover a brilliant way to re-purpose these.
I use them to hold electrical wires together.
I've made fake decorative candles using them.
They make music like kazoos.
They funnel sounds into your ears.
Perfect for winding your yarn.
With felt, pipe cleaners and some paper and glue you can create wonderful puppets.
They make great plant protection and even starter pots, if you cut them smaller, for seedlings.
Fasten three together trimmed to different heights and add a base. Instant desk organizer.
Currently I am doing research and experiments for the perfect idea to have people covet these throw-a-ways.
Don't throw them out! Recreate their purpose!
I hope my words have made you look at that those tiny bits of cardboard differently.
Long live the toilet tissue tubes!
