Report: Scott Naturals tube-free toilet paper gets test run

NEW YORK As part of its sustainability efforts, Kimberly-Clark will do a test-run of its Scott Naturals tubeless toilet paper in Northeast Walmart and Sam's Club stores, according to published reports.

The Scott Naturals line, which features bath tissue, towels and napkins made with a significant amount of recycled fiber, was developed in response to consumer demand for environmentally friendly products that didn't sacrifice performance. Last month, Scott Naturals introduced the Smart Flush bag, a device that reduces toilet water use.

Sales of consumer tissue reached $6.4 billion for Kimberly-Clark in 2009, and annual global sales for the Scott brand totaled more than $2 billion.
