When did changing the roll of toilet paper become such a hardship? I've been buying groceries and household items for a few years now, and the evolution of the "Bath Tissue" aisle has been happening quietly. There has been this slow process whereby rolls became double rolls and now mega rolls, which, if the label is to be believed, are three times larger than standard rolls. Wow, right?
This totally makes me think of those Boniva commercials in which Sally Field kind of gloats that she has just taken her osteoporosis medicine for the whole month! Sucks to be you, Random Middle-Aged Woman, who has to take a pill every. single. week.
Changing the roll takes five seconds, and just because it's three times larger doesn't mean certain people are more apt to replace the roll once they have used the last squares. Can we apply our American know-how and ingenuity to something that might actually make the planet a better place to live? Like - gasp! - a reasonable, practical, affordable alternative to toilet paper that doesn't destroy trees? Just saying.
