Did you know it takes 37 gallons of water to make a single roll of toilet paper? There’s a reason why many other countries rely on bidets for bathroom hygiene. While Americans may scoff at the idea, we must admit our bathroom routines could use a sustainable upgrade. If you’re not ready to invest in a bidet just yet, here are five sustainable toilet paper brands to get you started. 

  1.  Who Gives a Crap. If you want sustainable toilet paper with a clever name bonus, Who Gives a Crap is made from 100 percent recycled fibers, wrapped in paper, and delivered with carbon neutral shipping. Also, 50 percent of the company’s profits go towards providing water, sanitation, and hygiene products to communities in need. 
  2. Reel Premium Bamboo Toilet Paper. These rolls are made from sustainable sourced bamboo and entirely plastic-free. As a bonus, for every roll purchased, the company donates a single-use biodegradable toilet to someone in need. 
  3. Seventh Generation Toilet Paper. More likely to be found at your regular grocery store, this brand is made with 100 percent recycled paper and if you order online, the product is shipped in a recyclable box. 
  4.  Betterway Organic Bamboo Toilet Paper. This paper is great for sensitive skin and is made from 100 percent FSC-certified bamboo. It’s entirely hypoallergenic with no dyes, artificial fragrances, or BPA.
  5.  Tushy Premium Bamboo Toilet Paper. This paper is also made from 100 percent sustainable bamboo and it takes just 0.59 gallons of water to make a single roll. 

Like using reusable grocery bags and metal straws, switching up your toilet paper is a small but easy change to make your everyday routine more sustainable. If you’re looking for more green tips, check out our guide on creating an eco-friendly bathroom.
