Product Review: Who Gives A Crap® – Toilet Paper that Builds Toilets – 100% Bamboo Fiber Bathroom Tissue

Who Gives A Crap®

This company is on a mission to sell products that are great for the environment and also help people on a global scale.

How are they doing it, you may ask?

~First, they are offering 100% bamboo bathroom tissue, so no trees are used/harmed/chopped down in the production and bamboo is a renewable fiber, as well.

~Second, there is no chlorine, inks, dye or scents used in production, so for those of you who may have sensitivities and/or prefer au naturel, this is the preferred choice for a premium product.

~Third, the rolls of toilet paper are 3-ply and is not something I see so much available in the industry for what I would call “alternative” tree-free paper. I like to have a thicker sheet to use. You can purchase a box of 48 double length rolls and it is delivered to your door with free shipping.

~Fourth, you may not know or realize that recycled paper has BPA which is toxic, and why would you want to use that to wipe in sensitive areas of the body, I know I do not and that is why I even pack it in by bag for day-to-day use and also when I travel, as I don’t always find any stores in the city I am going to, have this as an option. I do call in advance to confirm if they do or not and then make the suggestion to them, if they are not aware of it.

Note: I know this company sells recycled toilet paper on their site, but I need to mention this, regardless, because of the health issue, as maybe the “head hunchos” will see this and do some serious research to understand why it is not a good idea to use at all.

~Fifth, this company, also donates 50% of their profits to help build toilets in places where they are needed in countries that never had this as an option.

Here is the info took off of their website about this:
We think toilets are pretty funny, but we started Who Gives A Crap when we learned that 2.3 billion people (roughly 40% of the world’s population) don’t have access to a toilet. Unfortunately that’s not very funny. Around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes. Luckily, toilets are proven to be a great solution—they provide dignity, health and an improved quality of life. And in case that wasn’t enough, it’s been shown that a dollar invested in sanitation yields $5.50 in increased economic prosperity.

~Sixth, they wrap each roll individually using paper, instead of plastic, which I prefer, even if some think it is wasteful, I disagree. I like the differnt patterns on them and can make a nice display of the rolls in a wicker basket (see pictures of rolls below). You can also reuse the paper for wrapping small gifts or crumbled up and put in a box for packing material.

~Seventh, the rolls are soft, but maybe not as soft for you, if you are used to a product like Charmin, which I do not recommend, but I think the small sacrifice for not super duper soft paper to protect yourself and the environment is worth it!

Here are a list of benefits of bamboo:
1- Renewable resource
2- Absorbs greenhouse gases
3- Fast growth rate
4- Minimal waste
5- Versatile
6- No fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides needed
7- Protects the soil
8- Good for economic development
9- Grows in a variety of conditions

We need more companies to produce & sell bamboo products and for the public to be educated on using them and their benefits.

They also sell facial tissues and paper towels.
