My favorite products to try and brands to support are those that are more environmentally conscious, give back in some way and most importantly, WORK well. When Who Gives a Crap reached out to me to try their eco-friendly toilet paper, I was intrigued, but when I learned about the company’s mission to help improve sanitation around the world, I was thrilled! Today I’m sharing my experience trying Who Gives A Crap’s 100% recycled toilet paper.
So how can you get your hands on toilet paper that’s good for the world and good for your bum? You order it online! You can purchase either 24 or 48 rolls of Who Gives A Crap’s three-ply recycled toilet paper, but the best value can be obtained by buying 48 at a time. (You can also try the premium toilet paper made from 100% bamboo, if that’s more up your alley.)
The box arrives at your doorstep in no time. Each toilet paper roll is wrapped in a fun, bright print. Other than tape on the box, no plastic is used in the colorful packaging, and inside the wrapping you’ll find toilet paper made with no inks, dyes or scents.
What I liked about the wrapping is that it makes the toilet paper more fun to display in your bathroom, such as in a basket. We also use a toilet paper holder that nicely shows off the vibrant prints. Your friends and family who come over might be wondering what’s up with your TP, and they can read about it right on the wrapping!
My thoughts on the toilet paper:
At 33 weeks pregnant I am going through more toilet paper than I’d like to be using right now. Sorry if that’s TMI, but it’s not a secret that pregnant women need to use the bathroom frequently! From the first time I used the three-ply toilet paper I realized I didn’t need to use as many squares as I have with other products. It was also immediately obvious that it was soft! As you can see in my photo, the jumbo rolls are quite thick. I feel like the 48 rolls are going to last us quite a while! It will be nice to have one less thing to purchase in store, especially when our baby arrives! I am already someone who likes to order online as much as possible, so it doesn’t feel weird to me to add toilet paper to my list of Internet purchases. By the way, Who Gives A Crap also sells tissues and paper towels.
You might be wondering if this will cost more money, but sometimes Who Gives A Crap can actually cost less than half the price of some of the biggest retail brands. How? You get free delivery on most orders. Also, the rolls are double length at 400 sheets, so they make a great value. The price works out to start at just 25 cents per 100 sheets (including delivery)!
How to Reuse Your Who Gives A Crap Paper Wrappers:
I really like that you can also reuse the individual wrappers in many ways and that the rolls are not made of plastic. I came up with some ways to get more use out of the wrapping after you open a roll:
- Use it as tissue paper for gifts.
- Use it for shipping to keep items safe.
- Make a paper bow tie for your pets.
- Make paper garland or flower party decorations.
- Decorate storage boxes or plain cardboard boxes for organization.
- Use them as backdrops for your vision board.
Don’t let the name fool you. Who Gives A Crap actually DOES care! As a business, it donates 50% of their profits to their charity partners so they can continue building toilets and improving sanitation in developing countries. It’s hard to fathom, but right now, 2.3 billion people don’t have access to a toilet, according to the World Health Organization. That’s one in three people!
To date, Who Gives A Crap says it has donated more than $1.2 million (that’s the equivalent of over $950,000!) Aussie dollars to their charity partners, including WaterAid, Sanergy, Lwala Community Alliance and Shining Hope For Communities.
If you’re like me and want to buy products that help the environment and actually work, Who Gives A Crap is perfect! Oh, and they donate 50% of their profits. To help get you started, I have a discount for you.
