Started in July 2012 by 3 guys and a heap of crowd funding, Who Gives a Crap (WGAC) toilet paper works towards flushing poverty for good!
At present, 40% of the world’s population don’t have access to a toilet. This is a leading contributor to endemic poverty and is a major drag on economic growth in some of the world’s poorest countries. Diarrhoea related illnesses fill over half sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill over 2,000 children under 5 every day.
WGAC gives 50% of the profits from their toilet paper to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
The way we see it here at Aussie Kidlets is that most people in Australia use quite a bit of toilet paper – WGAC is fantastic, soft, 3ply toilet paper at a very reasonable price, so why not do something good for the world with your toileting habits and when they ask “Who Gives a Crap?”, stand up and say “I do!”
More about WGAC Toilet paper
WGAC believes that the need to wipe shouldn’t mean we wipe out the planet. That’s why they only use 100% post consumer waste recycled fibres in their toilet paper. It saves on trees, water and landfill which means you’re doing your bit while doing your bit to help keep our planet great. This is particularly great for a couple of reasons:
Firstly, recycled paper uses 64 percent less energy and 50 percent less water to produce; creates 74 percent less air pollution; saves 17 trees (per ton of paper produced); and creates five times more jobs than one ton of paper products made from virgin wood pulp.
Secondly, the equivalent of about 270,000 trees is either landfilled or flushed every day and 10% of this global total is from toilet paper!
Be Good for Your Bum
WGAC doesn’t use any chlorine, inks, dyes or weird perfumes in their toilet paper. They just pulp the clean fibres at super high temperatures to make WGAC biodegradable, safe in septic tanks and as strong as it is silky soft. And since it’s only tested on the finest human bottoms, WGAC toilet paper is as good for your bum as it is for the planet.
