Save the Earth, One Poop at a Time

Did you know that each year, we use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper in the U.S. each year and with those rolls of paper it takes 473,587,500,000 gallons of water and 253,000 tons of chlorine for bleaching purposes to manufacture the paper. Also, toilet paper takes up a large part of sewer cisterns and sewage plants in cities. Don’t worry, there is a a solution to this current problem, it’s known as a bidet. A bidet is an attachment to your toilet that is a sustainable replacement for toilet paper. How it works: it uses a water spraying mechanism to clean yourself when finished using the facilities.

Now if you are not keen on the idea of a bidet, there is still a better option for toilet paper lovers. Greener (Brown) Toilet Paper. This new toilet paper prototype is made from recycled paper and breaks down easier than traditional toilet paper. To learn more about the Greener Toilet Paper go to:
