CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble’s Charmin brand broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest toilet roll.
Charmin said on Friday, which marks National Toilet Paper Day, that the roll measures more than 8 ft. high and a diameter for more than 9 ft. wide and is made entirely of Charmin toilet tissue. The roll was created at P&G’s Paper Products company, located outside of Cape Girardeau, Mo., and transported to P&G’s headquarters in Cincinnati for the unveiling.
“We are thrilled to be able to celebrate National Toilet Paper Day in such a big way this year,” Charmin marketing director Scott Mautz said. “While National Toilet Paper Day may not be a widely known holiday, it is one that we hope to continue celebrating with our great consumers for years to come.”
