Core-dially saving paper

Kimberly-Clark Corp., a tissue manufacturer based in Irving, Texas, is eliminating the cardboard core of two of its toilet-tissue brands to double the number of sheets per roll. They hope to decrease the public bathroom bane - running out of paper.

The company's new "coreless" tissue paper is being launched nationally this month after successful tests in nine cities. The two new brands, Kleenex Cottonelle Coreless and Scott Coreless - which pack up to 1,000 sheets by removing the middle - were spurred by building and property managers looking for ways to reduce run-out and lower labor costs.

The new coreless tissue uses an adapter to push indents into the roll, allowing it to turn the same as a traditional model.

The tissue costs about $1 per roll, about 20 percent more than the company's traditional product.
