This whole blogging challenge has addressed a lot of what I’m trying to do to be more environmentally friendly in my life, but I could never go so paperless that I give up toilet paper! Have you heard of “family cloth“? It’s reusable cloth toilet paper. I used cloth diapers with my son and wasn’t grossed out, but for some reason that thought of cloth toilet paper just doesn’t sit well with me.
Thankfully, I don’t need to consider it. I subscribe to Who Gives a Crap and get recycled toilet paper delivered to my door before I ever run out. (And if you are about to run out, you’ll know – they include three rolls in bright orange paper labelled EMERGENCY ROLL!) Who Gives a Crap not only uses recycled paper or bamboo to make their toilet paper, but they donate 50% of their profits to build toilets for people in need – which is about 40% of the world’s population. Read more about their impact here – it’s fascinating and inspiring!
Not only are you making a huge difference just by buying something you need, you’re also getting a smile out of it. Their boxes are funny – they thank the delivery man for hauling around a heavy box of TP, and proudly proclaim “WHO GIVES A CRAP” on the sides. The packaging is quirky and recyclable. They sometimes have fun offers, like the coloring paper wrapped rolls. They also offer tissues and paper towels, so you can still use those in your home while making a difference.
Shipping is free on orders over $25, which is pretty much every order if you buy your TP quarterly. You can CLICK HERE to get $10 off your first order, and gift me $10 off my next purchase too! (Aww, you’re so kind!) Even if you don’t want to use that link, consider giving their toilet paper a try. I absolutely love it, and would love to hear that you do too!
