If you are reading this from a country in which providing toilet paper in a public bathroom is the norm, this may not be so exciting.  But if you are in many countries of the world where toilet paper is a luxury item, this is thrilling.  With every roll of toilet paper we buy for use in the camper, we receive a small, portable roll to carry in to public restrooms.  And, we are not throwing away zillions of cardboard tubes.

Hey…… sometimes it is the little things in life that matter!
