There go the craft projects!

Seems that a toilet-paper maker has come up with an innovation -- tubeless rolls.

Removing the estimated 17 billion toilet paper tubes used in the U.S. annually could save 160 million tons of trash a year, according to Kimberly-Clark. The consumer products company promises the rolls fit on standard spindles and no glue means every square is usable

Does this mean that a whole generation of craft projects will go, er, down the drain?

Wow, that is amazing the amount of trash those tubes make. I for one honestly don't use tp rolls for crafting, I dunno maybe because they were in the bathroom first?

I do use them for craft projects at times. Too bad. Why don't they get rid of something absolutely useless instead?? (Whatever that would be!)
