Making toilet paper at the office

While the article doesn’t give many details, it looks like the White Goat machine turns traditional office paper into toilet paper. In about 30 minutes, the machine converts approximately 40 sheets of office into a fresh roll of toilet paper. The process involves shredding the paper, dissolving it in water, thinning it, drying it and winding the paper around a roll. According to the manufacturers, the White Goat is pricey, retailing at $100,000.  The cost to produce one roll of toilet paper however is cheap at 12¢ per roll.

Definitely a steal at 12¢ a roll, I wonder how it compares to Charmin or Cottonelle? Can you think of one item that you wouldn’t buy recycled?
