Just when you thought we couldn’t get any more eco-friendly. This one even surprised us. Lets talk about the delicate issue of toilet paper. Not a clean subject, but a valid one. It’s an item that we take for granted, but it’s been bleached, most of it isn’t recycled, and it can become landfill.
We have just got on to a company charmingly named “Who Gives A Crap”. This ingenious company takes an item that we see as a bare necessity, and creates a company based around turning it into an environmentally friendly concept, and helps people! This new toilet paper is 100% post consumer recycled, unbleached,and most importantly 50% of all profits are donated to bring clean water to underprivileged communities. (and it’s soft, unlike other recycled options).
Here’s what they say;
“At present, 40% of the world’s population don’t have access to a toilet. Diarrhoea related illnesses fill over half sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill over 2,000 children under 5 every day. We think that’s pretty crap. That’s why we give 50% of our profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.”
Pretty cool isnt it? We have made the change, and suggest you look into it too, with their handy subscription service, and free postage.
Saving the world, one wipe at a time!
