We make choices every day. Choices that have a real effect on the environment. Even the decision to pick one brand over another can make a difference. Green living means a cleaner, healthier and happier world for all of us.
So where do we start?
Going green can mean anything from shopping at your local farmer’s market and carrying your own tote to recycling and using energy-efficient lightbulbs. The toilet paper you use can even make a difference! Did you know the average person in the United States uses around 50 pounds of toilet paper per year? By our calculations, that’s about a bajillion trees per year to supply the U.S. alone! Yikes!!
Not all toilet paper is created equal. While all toilet paper is designed to be biodegradable, some brands are more eco-friendly than others. Thickness, composition, and chemical elements found in certain toilet paper all contribute to how much time is required to biodegrade.
To make it easier to go green with your roll, we’ve put together a list of our Top 3 Eco-Friendly toilet paper brands. By making the switch to one of these brands, you’ll do your part to make sure both you and our Earth stay clean, healthy and happy.
- Seventh Generation Natural Bathroom Tissue – #1 on our list is Seventh Generation Natural Bathroom Tissue. Made from 100% recycled paper and whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, Seventh Generation offers the softness and strength you expect from your toilet paper while still protecting the environment.
- Silk’n Soft – Silk’n Soft is a 100% biodegradable toilet paper brand made completely from Bamboo. Bamboo is one of the Earth’s fastest growing, renewable and sustainable plants. Where trees take decades to grow, Bamboo grows within months. Silk’n Soft shows there may be a better way to produce toilet paper without using trees.
- Scott 1000 – Scott 1000 is called America’s longest lasting roll, but it’s also one of the most Eco-Friendly toilet paper brands available today. Scott 1000’s 1-ply bathroom tissue dissolves quickly so it’s great for environment. To take it a step further, check out their tubeless rolls that help reduce unnecessary waste.
