Let's talk toilet paper.
This post was sponsored by Who Gives a Crap, as always all thoughts and opinions are my own. For more information please see my disclosure page.
is it really plastic free?
Yes! The rolls come in a cardboard box, wrapped in paper, with a cardboard core, and no other packaging. Everything is recyclable and can be composted in a backyard bin for your garden.
how does it arrive?
It arrives in a cardboard box that's clearly branded which sparked a great conversation with my mail lady.
I always love easy conversation starters when it comes to reducing waste. I spoke with my mail lady for a couple of minutes about the problem with normal toilet paper. Did you know we flush 27,000 trees down the toilet each day?
We can break this habit by buying bamboo or 100% recycled toilet paper, both offered by Who Gives a Crap. My mail lady was so intrigued, that I opened the box and gave her a roll to try! I know she's going to love it.
In a similar spirit, you can get $10 off your first subscription!
how do you store it?
I currently live in 300 sq. ft. so I completely understand your plight.
I'm storing part of the box under my bed, and the rest on my bathroom shelf. I have the very festive holiday rolls. I'm embarrassed to say, right now, it's the only holiday decoration I have up in my tinyish home.
These festive wrappers can be upcycled to make a cute wrapping paper for smaller gifts or even darling little bows.
I'm working to change that this weekend. I have been feeling the holiday spirit in other ways though! Have you seen all the holiday content I've been cranking out??
how well does it work?
When you use a bidet, your bottom is very wet. You need a strong toilet paper that's not going to fall apart. Who Gives a Crap’s bamboo toilet paper absorbs water without tearing and falling apart. As a bonus, it has all all the softness of a 3 ply without the guilt.
do they walk the walk?
Who Gives a Crap has already donated over a million AUS dollars to their projects. They donate 50% of their proceeds to fund hygiene and sanitation projects like clean water and toilets. Did you know, 40% of the world's population doesn't have access to a toilet?
Beyond just their amazing philanthropic side, based on the materials they use, Who Gives A Crap has calculated they’ve produced enough to save over 50,000 trees, and saved 98 million liters of water and saved almost 6,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
what's the catch?
No catch! It's a total steal. Price wise it costs .25 cents for 100 sheets. It's a great value so you can stay in budget, go plastic free, and help people in need.
