DailyDirt: Not-So-Gross National Products

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Public bathrooms everywhere have been trying to reduce their water, energy and paper product usage. There was even a $100,000 prize from the Gates Foundation to design a better toilet. Toilet paper could be the next bathroom product that's ripe for disruption, so ponder a few of these articles next time you're on the thinker. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    More toilet friendly paper

    I propose that all newspapers, telephone directories and copy paper become toilet friendly. Yes we need softer newspapers etc. Maybe a home machine that can perforate and aerate paper that turns harsh papers into soft tissues.
    Better a patent the idea. The Perfaerator.
    Then I guess the printers would object over copyright issues. Transferring print to one's rear may be considered illegal copying.
    Come to think about it what did people do during the depression era. Maybe a Perfaerator already exists.
