Here's one of those simple things you can do at home, in the office and if you are renovating, at your site toilet.
You are already buying toilet paper, right? So why not subscribe and get your 100% recycled toilet paper delivered every couple of months.
The folks at Who Gives a Crap deliver 100% recycled toilet paper to you door. 50% of the profits build toilets in the developing world via Water Aid. I've been using their toilet paper for almost a year now and it's fabulous.
According to the WWF, 270,000 trees are flushed down the toilet or end up in garbage every day. The Who Gives a Crap toilet paper is made of 100% recycled paper fibres, bamboo or sugarcane in our products.
In addition for every toilet roll you use, you’re helping to provide someone with access to a toilet for one week. And that's important because 2.5 billion people (40% of the world's population) don't have access to a toilet. Over 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That's 1,400 children a day.
I love that I am buying an essential household item and contributing to a charity like Water Aid.
And if you didn't know, it's world toilet day on the 19th November. :)
