For those who missed the post on Facebook this week, ‘Who Gives A Crap’ (WGAC) toilet paper is the latest discovery for this Hunter Gatherer – but have I tried it, you ask?
There are so many reasons to get excited about a company such as this:
- 50% of profits go to Wateraid to install toilets for the 2.5 billion people around the world who don’t have access to a toilet and improve sanitation in some of the worlds poorest countries
- Australian owned. Ethically produced
- Made using 100% post consumer waste paper sourced from local schools
- Contains no chlorine, inks, dyes or scents
- Safe for septic tanks
- Individually wrapped in snazzy paper – not plastic
- Free delivery to over 70% of Australia
- Regular subscriptions available
But you don’t need to hear all that from me, you can jump on the website to read how they are determined to “WIPE OUT POVERTY ONE ROLL AT A TIME”.
This post is in response to the question put to me by a few readers of the CWMS Facebook page:-
“Have you tried this yet?”
The colourful roll was looking so great sitting in the bathroom I was reluctant to open it, but since you asked I do aim to please…
My feedback for this product is to simply reinforce my promise to you, my valued readers, which is to never promote anything via this blog that I haven’t personally used and approve of. A picture speaks a thousand words so, the last image in the sequence above is provided so you can decide for yourself if you Give A Crap. It shows the transperancy (if any) between WGAC and the usual brand we use at home, in the best way I could think of.
My order for a full box has been placed and I am looking forward to having many positive conversations with curious visitors who will inevitably admire the cheerful packaging. It might even become my new practical present idea for all you people I love to shop for who already have enough ‘STUFF’ (check out last weeks ‘Mid Week Laugh’ on Facebook for an explanation).
There is nothing like using your consumer power to positively reinforce and support companies who are not only providing a service or product for our usage, but then in turn use their success towards providing a better future for people in desperate need.
If ‘Who Gives A Crap’ becomes a company you decide to support, I am confident that when you sit for your quiet reflection during the day, you can relax with a confident and proud smile. The world you are supporting is one where everyone is entitled to sit comfortably and have access to adequate sanitation to prevent ongoing disease.
It really is a simple way to help “Flush Poverty Down The Loo“!
