Do you give a crap about your toilet paper? Who Gives A Crap does! Here’s why

At First Glance

The day my Who Gives A Crap toilet paper arrived on my doorstep, I couldn’t help but be excited. When a company puts extra effort into the packaging, you just know it’s gonna be good! And Who Gives A Crap is so good that they donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need!

Opening the box was a whole other level of amazement. Who Gives A Crap is well known in the Instagram world for their colourful, bright and cool toilet paper wrap. The best part is that it’s wrapped in paper, and not in plastic. People would probably describe toilet paper as boring, but necessary. These wrappers, on the other hand, make the bathroom more like a fun party! They’re so cute that a few will be nicely stacked right above the toilet for a) easy access and b) a party atmosphere.

Most standard toilet paper at the store comes wrapped in plastic. Depending on how many rolls you buy, your toilet paper may be wrapped in plastic twice. TWICE! But not Who Gives A Crap. They give a crap about the environment, so this toilet paper comes without plastic. Plus, they deliver right to your door!

Why even wrap toilet paper? Well, quite simply for sanitary reasons. When you’re wiping your business, you probably don’t want to worry about germs. No germs here.

Tree Free & Sustainability

Did you know that most toilet paper is still made with virgin trees? We’re cutting them down to wipe our bums then we flush it all down the toilet. It’s like taking a tree and putting it down the toilet. This takes a lot of resources, energy, water and transportation.

Instead, Who Gives A Crap makes their products without trees. Their products are either 100% bamboo, or 100% recycled. This saves trees, water and energy! Let’s hug trees instead.

Oh and there’s no inks, dyes or scents. Perfect for sensitive bums, and the environment.

Quality Control On The Toilet

Okay, so I really wouldn’t normally go into this much detail about bathroom business, but I’m going there. We’re going there. We all want toilet paper that will, umm, get the job done. Whether it’s number 1 or number 2, or anything in between (raised eyebrows, anyone?), we want a good experience.

Who Gives A Crap cares about the environment, and our bums. This toilet paper is soft to the touch, gentle on the bum, and, gets the job done! Your next number 2 (yep I went there) won’t know what hit it! It’s that good.

Show Me The Money

You might be wondering how affordable it is to buy sustainable toilet paper from a company that can donates 50% of its profits to charity. I know I was curious!

100 sheets of toilet paper costs about 25 cents (US dollars) for their jumbo 3-ply rolls! Including shipment. That is totally affordable and reasonable. Plus with it being shipped to the door, we don’t have to worry about carrying big, bulky packages of toilet paper at the store!

Toilet Paper That Gives Back

Let’s get back to the fact that Who Gives A Crap donates 50% of their profits to charities that build toilets and improve sanitation in developing countries. As you read this, about 2.3 billion people do not have access to a toilet. That’s 1 in 3 people! Not having access to a clean toilet leads to illness, which is devastating for communities who just want the best for their families and friends.

To date, Who Gives A Crap has donated over $1.3 million dollars to their charity partners. WaterAid, Sanergy, WaterSHED, Lwala Community Alliance and Shining Hope For Communities are some of their partners implementing sanitation projects throughout the developing world.
