We are now using an ethical toilet roll supplier called Who Gives a Crap.
They started the comapny when they learnt 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 diarrhoea diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes.
They donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets or more specifically they’ve donated half of their profits to non-profit organisations working to improve access to hygiene, water and basic sanitation in developing countries.
WaterAid is one such organisation and has deep experience and skill in implementing high impact sanitation projects throughout the developing world. To date, they’ve donated $1,175,000, which is enough to help tens of thousands of people in need.
If that wasn’t enough to persuade us to use their product they also raise the issue that toilet paper is still largely made with freshly cut trees, which isn’t great for the environment. Instead they use forest friendly materials which saves thousands of trees and thousands of tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
