Denmark Wipes Toilet Paper Competition

Congratulations to Denmark, which uses less toilet paper than any other Western nation:

The problem of toilet paper waste has been brought to the forefront of the media through a comprehensive, worldwide usage study by watchdog organisation World Watch, which said that each Dane uses a meagre 13 kilos of toilet paper annually – a figure at the ‘bottom’ of those for the western world.

On the flip side, Americans – the world leaders in TP usage – go through a whopping 23 kilos each per year. That figure is equivalent to using 57 squares of a roll each day.

seems a waste of time for someone to calculate the amount of toilet paper a country uses....but the flip side of this is the reality of disposal.

I really don't see why Denmark people use so much less toilet paper than other countries.

However, you could live in a country where no toilet paper is used, you only eat with one hand!
