Russians use less toilet paper than Americans

Russian toilet paper consumption of 1.5 kilos per capita is 4 times less than in Eastern Europe and 10 times lower than that of Western Europe and the USA, says the research by Svenska Cellulosa, known for such brands as Zewa, Tork, Libero, Libress and Tena.
      Citizens of Hungary and the Czech Republic use an average of 6 kilos of toilet paper per capita, while Western Europeans flush about 17 kilos down the lavatory annually. Americans top the list of the loo paper fans with 20 kilos used per capita.
      Russian experts explain the considerable difference by culture of consumption: Russians tend to fold the paper when use, while Americans actually wad it. Another reason is that high quality toilet paper is imported by the country and quite expensive.
