In a world where toilet paper has become the hottest ticket in town how do you stay calm and roll on?
If your supermarket shelves look like something from the Soviet era and you don’t fancy a tug of war with other customers it may be time to look beyond your usual sources.
There’s now a range of alternative suppliers making sure you never need to get caught short again. Not only do they deliver in bulk to your door they are producing sustainable options made from 100% recycled paper and bamboo.
Bamboo is a fast-growing renewable resource that requires less water to grow, doesn’t need pesticides or chemicals to accelerate growth, and is harvested by hand from the base so they don’t need to be replanted. So, you can skip to the loo every time knowing you’re ethical to the (rear) end.
No matter whether you prefer to fold, scrunch, or roll, here are a few of the names you need to know to feel good and get the job done.
Who gives a crap
Launched with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in 2012 this company donates half its profits towards sanitation infrastructure in the developing world. The organisations it supports might dig pit latrines, install septic systems, or maintain clean and safe toilets.
Since its inception it has donated a total of $10 million to organisations working to improve sanitation and it has essentially eliminated plastic from its supply chains.
So each purchase is making the world a better place. Plus, who can resist its funky designs?
It started with 100% recycled paper and later introduced a bamboo paper line. It charges $56 for 48 rolls of recycled paper or $64 for 48 rolls of bamboo paper.
How we roll
This company has made global reforestation its mission. Every order placed contributes to the planting of trees in bushfire affected regions of Australia. Through its partnership with non-profit onetreeplanted,org it has helped plant 5970 trees.
It charges $33 for 24 rolls of recycled toilet paper and $64 for 48 rolls of bamboo toilet paper.
Its packaging is certified both industrially and home compostable and its paper products internationally FSC-AOOO521 certified and its cotton products are GOTS 100 per cent organic cotton. Which translated means they are organic and environmentally and socially resourced in an ethical way.
As the name suggests this one specialises in bamboo toilet paper, selling anything from a single roll for $1.95 to a 24 pack for $36. Its manufacturing is FSC certified and its bamboo is grown, processed and manufactured within its production facilities.
Bamper is sold via Urban Ethos and is available as a subscription.
Urban Ethos has partnered with i=change to donate $1 of every sale and consumers have a choice of directing the donation to one of three sustainable charities: Clean the Sea to remove plastic and debris from the ocean; Restore the Land to plant trees; or Restore the Reef to prevent sediment from reaching the Great Barrier Reef.
