Making sustainable choices is a priority for us at the Peppercorn, as we know that every little decision counts.
We came across this brand – aptly named ‘Who Gives a Crap’ – and decided that they were the perfect values match for us as a company.
Here’s a little about how the ‘Who Gives a Crap’ toilet paper is making a difference around the world; they make all of their products with environmentally friendly materials, and donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need. To date they have donated over $1.2 million dollars to charity and saved a whole of a lot of trees, water and energy.
Interesting facts about toilets from their website;
2.3 billion people (about 40% of the world’s population) don’t have access to a toilet. Around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes. Luckily, toilets are proven to be a great solution—they provide dignity, health and an improved quality of life. And in case that wasn’t enough, it’s been shown that a dollar invested in sanitation yields $5.50 in increased economic prosperity.
Did you know?
Most toilet paper is still made with virgin trees. Not only are we still cutting them down, wiping and flushing them down the toilet, but we’re also consuming loads of energy and water along the way.
Who Gives A Crap products are made 100% without trees!
Trees should be for hugging, not wiping!
Pretty awesome movement to be a part of, hey?!
Whilst it does work out slightly more expensive, we think it’s well worth the pay off…
It’s also really easy to place an order online (and there is even free shipping for every order over $30)!!
Note: we do not receive any kind of commission or incentives from this company for spreading the word – we just seriously love what they do and want more people to know about it!
