Firstly, thank you for posting about this Barcey.
Most offices already recycle all their paper waste. This paper is then made into paper products; one of which being toilet paper. Companies can then buy the recycled toilet paper instead of the freshly cut stuff (I actually don't see why it isn't mandatory that all toilet paper is derived from recycled sources!). They claim it would save sixty cedar trees per year. This is a bit misleading because if the company already cared to do the right thing then they would be using recycled, which already saves the sixty cedars.
The WG takes quite a lot of space which would make it unsuitable in many office environments (it is larger than two refrigerators). It does only cost 1 cent to produce one roll. However, this doesn't take into account the cost to acquire the WG unit, which is US$100,000. With the cost of usual toilet rolls at about 60 cents, this would mean the machine would have to create 200,000 rolls before it pays for itself. Unfortunately, this is another limiting factor for many office environments.
It would only be very large offices that could justify and accommodate the White Goat well, and it does have a place in the world. It is a positive step, of sorts. Let's just hope it gets out all the staples!
