30 Foot Empire State Bldg Toilet Paper Tube Sculpture in NYC Sends Eco Message to Public


Green Living





Dashingly handsome home and design celebrity Carter Oosterhouse, voted People magazine's Sexiest Man on TV and who is set to host the new FYI Network show Rowhouse Showdown this fall, was on hand last week to unveil a three story high replica of the Empire State Building in New York City's Flatiron Plaza in the shadow of the iconic original stucture. This wasn't just any homage to the historic building, though. This famous landmark skyscraper reinvented by the Kimberly-Clark's SCOTT® Brand was completely built of cardboard toilet paper tubes.



The one-of-a-kind structure celebrates the national release of Scott Naturals® Tube-Free bath tissue. This innovative product eliminates the cardboard tube that has been the central fixture of rolled toilet paper for more than 100 years. Thus, Scott Naturals is doing its part to eliminate a portion of the 17 billion toilet paper tubes thrown away each year, which is enough to fill the Empire State Building not once but twice.

While the Scott Naturals Tube-Free product has been available in stores since 2010 in limited Northeastern markets, the special event and national release announcement signifies Kimberly-Clark's continued commitment to sustainability initiatives. A downsized version of the paper tube building will be donated to the Children's Museum of Manhattan and the base features artwork from the museum's Junior Staff Internship program.

In keeping with the eco-friendly message theme of the day, Oosterhouse not only made a simple public appearance. The lifestyle expert also shared some simple steps for consumers to make the world greener for us all.
