Day 63 – While I was busy talking about shoe donation and recycling yesterday, the world celebrated World Wildlife Day. Personally, I think World Wildlife Day should be everyday. As should Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents Day, Nurses Day, Teachers Day and many more important celebrations, but, I digress. This year’s theme is Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet. I thought it would be a perfect time to check-in on our new toilet paper choice and share how the family is enjoying the new brand.
It’s been a month now using Who Gives a Crap toilet paper made from 100% recycled paper. We are not missing our old brand. Even though the Kirkland brand was softer, it hasn’t been that big of an adjustment. Even my nose that gets blown on a daily basis due to some pretty severe allergies, has adjusted just fine. There have been zero complaints from the family and it feels good to support a company doing good in the world. Our paper wrappers go into the paper recycling and the box and toilet paper tube go into the cardboard recycling. Not one bit of plastic to deal with. It’s refreshing!
So, if you haven’t already made the switch, I encourage you to consider it. Your butt will be happy and so will your heart.
You should also check out Who Gives a Crap’s blog. They have great content. It’s awesome when they share updates about the impact they are having in communities where toilets are being built. You get to see how you are helping others. Just recently they shared an update.
“Last year we donated $10,000 to one of our partner organizations, Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) to build brand new toilets that will provide proper sanitation to thousands of people in Mathare, one of Nairobi’s oldest informal settlements. We just got some updates on how the project is going, so we wanted to share with you! After all, none of this would be possible without your support.” You can read more about the project, HERE!
Lastly, I noticed on the empty toilet paper rolls a website address, www.wgac.me. Here you can read interesting toilet history, toilet trivia or toilet facts. Pretty much everything and anything you ever wanted to know, or didn’t ever care to know about toilets can be found on this site. Enjoy!
Tomorrow, charitable search engines and the causes they support.
