A retail giant hopes to save 140 tonnes of carbon emissions a year by reducing the diameter of its toilet roll tubes. Sainsbury’s in the next few weeks will roll out its entire own brand toilet paper range containing a cardboard tube that has a diameter of 112mm instead of the usual 123mm. The supermarket says the move will remove approximately 500 trucks off the road each year and thus make the carbon savings.
