The Globe and Mail’s editorial board has taken on paper towels again, this time for the purpose of finding ways to make the purchase more convenient and easier.
In the process, we have discovered an unintended side effect: paper towels are becoming a little more expensive.
Read more The cost of paper towels, the most widely used disposable product in the world, has increased more than 60 per cent since 2000.
At the same time, paper towels have been found to be much more difficult to buy and to use, costing shoppers an average of nearly $3 more per purchase, according to an analysis by consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
That is according to a report by the consumer watchdog the American Council on Science and Health, which found that the cost of buying paper towels has increased from $3 per roll to $7.50 per roll since 2000, an increase of more than $1,200.
And the cost per roll has increased every year since then.
The cost per square metre has gone up as well, from $0.03 per square inch to $0 and a penny per square centimetre, respectively.
The paper towels industry is also grappling with an increasing number of customer complaints about their service, including poor quality and low prices.
And a growing number of businesses are taking steps to improve their customer experience by adopting more modern technology.
“People are more aware of how the market works and how they can buy better, cheaper products,” said John DeBartolo, chief executive of Consumer Reports, a consumer information and research group.
“They also are more concerned about quality and durability.
The way we deliver quality has changed significantly.”
He added that people are also looking to buy cheaper paper towels because they are more convenient, with many retailers offering discounts for customers who buy paper towel at home.
“A lot of retailers are looking to cut costs and cut out unnecessary overhead,” he said.
“The price per roll of paper towel is actually the most important thing to me.”
