Who Gives A Crap

Who Gives A Crap Banner

I kept seeing ads for a free trial box of this (exc. shipping) and, with a name like that, I just had to give it a go!

What's The Deal?

Launched in July 2012 via crowdfunding, Who Gives A Crap wants to get us all switching to recycled bog roll. Because right now 27,000 trees are wiped out every single day to make loo paper - yet 2.3 billion people worldwide don't even have access to a toilet.

Who Gives A Crap puts their money where their mouth is on this score too. 50% of their profits - aka over £1million so far - go towards building toilets and improving sanitation in the developing world, the lack of which currently kills almost 800 children a day.

For more toilet facts, btw, check out a post I wrote earlier:

Ten Toilet Truths

But Isn't It Expensive?

I was actually really surprised by what good value for money the products are. The 100% recycled toilet paper - made from office paper and the like - comes in double length rolls and works out at 18.8p per 100 sheets. By comparison Cushelle and Andrex both come in at over 20p per 100 sheets, and most Supermarket 'luxury' packs fall between 16 and 19p.

They also sell bamboo toilet roll (22.5p per 100 sheets) and tissues, and bamboo / sugarcane blend kitchen roll. Having them in hand I can say that they all feel just as nice, if not better, than our usual buys.

The Trial Box

I ummed and aahed a little over taking the plunge as I'd only just bought a multi-buy of Aldi loo roll. The funky packaging was too much for me to resist though, and I justified it by the fact I'd wanted to get a box of tissues for the living room and would have spent £1 on that. For £2 extra I'd be getting three double length loo rolls and a roll of kitchen towel. Definitely a bargain!

Try the trial for yourself, or if you want to order more straight off use this link to get £5 off. :)
