Who Gives a Crap - sustainable toilet and tissue products
Pros: 100% bamboo, 50% of proceeds are donated to help build bathrooms worldwide
Cons: Not as soft as your Kleenex/Puff tissue, but it is comfortable enough to never cause irritation
Review: Such an easy alternative for your tissue usage. I have a very sensitive nose, and although these aren't angelically soft, they are perfect for whatever you need them fo!
Happy Sustainable Sunday! Allergy season is upon us, which only means more feelings of guilt when we use pampered facial tissues. SNOT today 🤧! Instead of buying the notorious household name products like Kleenex or Puffs, it’s time to start blowing your nose elsewhere. And do we have the perfect sustainable tissue alternative for you. Trust us, we have the nose for these types of things!👃🏼
From the deforestation to the manufacturing process, the effects that logging, bleaching, and producing paper have on our environment are devastating. Places like the great Boreal Forest in Canada or the Atlantic Forest in South America, a UNESCO World Heritage site, have seen 85% of their forests removed. In the US, paper consumption is the highest of the world, chopping over 12,430 square miles of forest each year. The pulp and paper business is one of the most polluting industries in North America and the third greatest emitter of CO2. Entire habitats are being eradicated and it’s time we put a stop to it.
@WhoGivesacrap you ask? With 15 billion pounds of tissue products used each year, Earth does! Made with 100% bamboo fibers, zero trees are destroyed in the production of these durable yet soft tissues. What most people don’t realize is that bamboo is a grass, not a tree; which makes it a very sustained resource, especially how incredibly quick it can grow. And after these biodegradable tissues are blown, picked, crumbled, snotted, or wiped into, they are easily decomposed back into the planet. @Whogivesacrap goes above and beyond than just delivering environmentally friendly tissue products, donating 50% of profits to organizations that build water/hygiene stations and sanitation toilets for communities in need. Because as we sit here and compare tissue options, 2.4 billion people still don't have access to a toilet.
Not to sound snotty, but we must invest in products that are more sustainable for our planet. Otherwise with each blow we take, it’s a blow to the environment. The switch is an easy one, and your nose and planet will be feeling a whole lot cleaner. So Bless You, Gesundheit, Salud, or Yi Bai Sui. Hopefully we hit this one right on the nose! 👃🏽🤧🌎
