What's the average amount of toilet paper?

Dear Mountie

What's the average amount of toilet paper a human uses in one year?


Dear Christian

On average, consumers use 8.6 sheets per visit - or a total of 57 sheets per day. That's an annual total of 20,805 sheets. Since each sheet measure 4.5 x 4.5 inches - this works out as an astonishing 93 622.5 inches, or 2 378 meters of toilet paper per person per year.

Incidentally, Situated at 2378 meters above sea level, in South Sikkim in the Himalayas, high above Gyalshing one can find the well known Nyingmapa monastery, known as Pemayangtse.
