Local Family Finds Loads of Savings in Recycled Toilet Paper

(Toledo, OH)For area resident Pat Islington, recycling is about much more than a green attitude toward the environment. The West Toledo resident has found that there is a great deal of green in recycled toilet paper.

"Pretty basically, we buy the heavy-duty brands and wash out every sheet after wiping," said the Vermaas Street resident. "Then we hang them to dry on the line, saving even more money on running the dryer. I figure we've banked over $200 in the last year on toilet paper, baby wipes, and Kleenexes."

Islington said that his wife, however, has been "resistant" to his efforts at saving money through recycling such products as bathroom tissue, disposable diapers, and Q-Tips.

"For the first few weeks she wouldn't talk to me, but lately she's started having short conversations about the kids' grades and stuff," he noted. "Still, She won't give up her 'secret stash' of toilet paper that she swipes from work and from our friends. Pretty sad, isn't it, what desperation will do to some people?"

Neighbors of the Islingtons, however, fail to share Pat's enthusiasm over what he calls his "de-pooperative efforts."

"Dude is crazier than a run-over dog drunk on antifreeze," said next-door neighbor Eustus Patchett. "Next thing he'll be telling the missus to throw her stanky old tampons in the rinse cycle. Whoops - better not give his nutty ass any funny ideas, right?
