AIKEN, SC, Sept 15, 2014 (Local News) - Kimberly-Clark is rolling out a new tubeless toilet paper product that is being produced only at the company's Beech Island plant.
Scott Naturals, owned by Kimberly-Clark Corp., is producing a roll of bath tissue that has no center cardboard tube. The company began testing the product in three markets in 2004.
"It was extremely successful, so they decided to roll it out across the country," said Jared Mackrory, brand manager for Scott.
The company expects the move to eliminate much of the 17 billion toilet paper tubes thrown away each year.
