Don't Worry, 100% Recycled From Other Paper.
Aptly named, Who Gives A Crap makes great TP and they don't flush profits down the drain... for every roll purchased, they donate 50% of their profits to to help build toilets for those in need. And unlike other eco-brands, it's soft and comes wrapped in paper, not plastic.
Available individually wrapped or in 6-pack of naked rolls wrapped together.
THE BORING (BUT STILL USEFUL) STUFF
NOTE: You CAN buy cases of TP direct from this company, however, if you want to try before you buy, or you live in a small space and can't house a big box of TP, buying from What's Good does the trick.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
Your last roll. TP from non-recycled sources. TP with added fragrance and dyes. TP that comes wrapped in plastic. TP from companies that don't give back to the greater good.
100% recycled paper from books and office paper.
Wrapped in recycled and recyclable paper, not plastic.
We asked "Who Gives A Crap" about sourcing. They are working on a USA manufacturing system, but in the meantime, here's what they had to say:
"We're an Australian-owned company, and after a lot (and we mean A LOT) of thoughtful consideration, we’ve proudly set up our manufacturing operations in China. There’s a bit of a misconception about production in China, which we think is important address. We work closely with our producers to ensure standards and processes we’re happy with, plus we found that China offered a lot of wonderful benefits:
For our North American launch, we’ve sea freighted containers of stock into both the east and west coast, and are distributing from there. Don’t worry, we’re not flying your toilet paper orders over from Australia!
All of these factors ensure we’re building a sustainable business model that delivers quality and environmentally responsible products at competitive prices. This allows us to focus on our greater mission: building toilets for those who need them!"
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Who Gives A Crap was started in 2013 after the founders learned that 2.3 billion people across the world don't have access to a toilet. That's roughly 40% of the global population and means that 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.
In their words, "We thought that was pretty crap." So in July 2012, Simon, Jehan and Danny launched Who Gives A Crap. They delivered their first product in March 2013 and have been growing ever since.
To date they've donated over $1.8m Aussie dollars (that’s the equivalent of over $1,300,000!) to charity and saved a heck of a lot of trees, water and energy. Not bad for a toilet paper company, eh?
Finally a good, soft recycled toilet paper. Be aware that it's the same as a 2ply (although advertised as 3ply)
Robert, it takes a village... thank you for alerting us to the fact that for nearly 2 years our product details listed this as 3-ply. A mistake on our part for sure. It's fixed! We appreciate the review, too. :)
Soft and wonderful. Cute packaging. No trees gave their life for this toilet paper. It is made from recycled office paper and is amazingly soft and strong. and the company also donates a portion of the proceeds to charities. Looks like I've found my new toilet paper.
Leigh, I guess who know who Gives a Crap! Thank you for the review!
