You’ve hit at least one unsuspecting person with a wrapping paper tube at least once in your life.
Did you know the average American uses 8 paper tubes a day…all without knowing? It’s true. All of us here at Spiral Paper Tube dedicate our lives to making products most will never think twice about. Let alone think once about.
Our most popular tubes and cores are hidden in plain sight.
They’re inside holiday wrapping paper, rolls of toilet paper, kitchen paper towels and Scotch tape. Most consumers don’t set out to buy our paper tubes and paper cores directly, so their interaction with our product goes something like this:
- use all of the wrapping paper, toilet paper, paper towels, or Scotch tape
- throw paper tube in recycle bin
- the end
If you’re a parent of small children, or a teacher, it might go something more like this:
- ask others to intentionally use up all of their wrapping paper, toilet paper, paper towels, or Scotch tape
- collect their paper tubes and cores
- use scissors, glue, glitter, construction paper, yarn, paint, and popsicle sticks to make crafts
- the end
As you can see, parents, kids, teachers and students are having a bit more fun with our products than the average consumer. For this reason, we want to have a little fun this next month.
This summer, we want to see your crafts and inventions!
When you, your kids, or your students create something with a paper tube, post it on our Facebook Page or use #ilovetubes when you post it on Twitter or Instagram!
And for those that may not be too crafty, if you spot a paper tube or paper core in a retail shop, on the street, at a post office, etc. you can join in also!
With your help, we can bring those 8 paper tubes a day into the spotlight and remind America just how fun paper tubes can be!
