Electronic Dispenser Decides How Much TP You Need
Sheryl Crowe’s wish has almost become a reality. Kimberly-Clark Professional has devised the JRT Electronic Coreless bath tissue dispenser. When one of two motion sensors is activated, the battery powered motor dispenses a pre-determined amount of toilet paper that can be short (16-inches or five sheets,) medium (20-inches,) or long (24-inches.)
Theoretically this will produce a 20% reduction in the amount of paper used and 45% less packaging waste. In case of a glich in the flow, the device also comes with an emergency feed button, a manual feed roller, and a space for a “rescue roll” should the user need extra tissue. The dispenser is available for $29.99 in white or grey plastic or $54.99 for stainless steel housing, and runs on 4 D batteries that should last about a year.
