This video via Process X on YouTube gives us an inside look at toilet paper production at the Japaense factory Marutomi Paper Co., Ltd. Sometimes it’s the manufacturing of the most casual, everyday items that is actually the most mindblowing. Seeing the sheer amount of paper produced makes you think about how much we, as individuals, must go through a year, or even in our lifetime – a bit unnerving!
Process of making toilet paper. Overwhelming scale of the Japanese factory
