A Japanese company recently invented a powerful machine named "White Goat," which can change waste paper into toilet paper. Perhaps this equipment will become a convenient and environmental-friendly product for office use.

If you feed the "White Goat” 40 pieces of normal A4 paper, it will "spit out" a roll of toilet paper 30 minutes later. The machine will first cut up the waste paper, and then mix the shredded paper with water to change it into pulp. Then, after several other procedures including flattening, drying and cutting, a roll of toilet paper will be produced.

The cost of this toilet paper produced by "White Goat" is about 6 pence per roll, which is only 1/6 of the price of high-class toilet paper in U.K. markets. Its quality is close to the toilet paper which is sold at 11 pence a roll in markets.
