This bamboo toilet paper helps you cut your carbon emissions

 

 

If there’s one thing I cannot and will never live without, it’s toilet paper. I always make sure to grab some when I go to the store, especially if I don’t have that much left at home. I’m sure the sentiment is shared by most of the people in the world, and so it might surprise you less when I say that every now and then, I take the time to research it.

I’ve grown fond of using high-quality toilet paper for quite a while now, and the reasons are many. On the one hand, it does a considerably better job than thinner ones or those that have fewer layers. On the other hand, I focus on whether or not the product I’m spending my cents on is truly eco-friendly.

In my ever-growing efforts to lead a meaningful life and have some degree of respect for the environment, I usually check the site Tree Hugger. That’s how I came to stumble upon an article describing a new type of product made out of bamboo. Tushy is one of those startups that actually live by the principle of treating all of the parts in your body as you would your face. No decent man or woman would want to affect his or her skin in any way, so you might want to be aware of the fact that loads and loads of chemical are used by manufacturers to turn toilet paper into something eye-catching and impregnated with a pleasant smell.

Normally, we should all switch to using a bidet instead of toilet paper, but that would be impossible. First, not everyone has enough room in their bathroom in order to install a bidet. Besides, Americans aren’t exactly accustomed to utilizing it, unlike the French, for example.

Although the quality appears to be undeniable, the product does disappoint in some respects. One of them is the color. Nobody wants to wipe his or her tushy with something that looks remotely dirty, and so the dark tan color of the toilet paper might be an inconvenience. Unless they do not have a vivid imagination, your kids might find the product less pleasing to look at.

The person who wrote a review about the Tushy bamboo toilet paper claims that he found it hard to understand whether or not using the product made him feel like he was wiping his butt with soft Panda fur. Of course, that was due to the fact that he hadn’t tried doing this and he most probably will never do that.

My take on all of this is that, just as we try to find the best toilets when we move into a new home as they can help us relax and get rid of some of our daily worries, we should do the same with toilet paper.
