Plastic Free, Tree Free and Sustainable Toilet Paper.
Not only is toilet paper itself a waste product, ending up in sewers and landfills, but the process used to make it is also incredibly wasteful, consuming 37 gallons of water, 1.5 pounds of wood, and 1/3kWh of electricity to produce ONE ROLL. That is not even considering the fact that we use chlorinated bleach to whiten the paper, using 253,000 tons per year. And of course, toilet paper often comes wrapped in soft plastic which is most often not recycled and definitely does not fit in with a zero waste lifestyle. So, what to do about it? Unbelievably, there are more options than you might think!
