Understanding the Environmental Impact of Toilet Paper
Toilet paper is something that is probably on all of our grocery lists.
It’s a necessary item that we try to avoid running out of. It is something that is always on our shopping lists. But have you ever thought of the environmental impact that stems from using this everyday item? I urge you to take a moment and be a bit more mindful when making this purchase.
Traditional toilet paper is made with virgin pulp.
This process of manufacturing toilet paper is very wasteful. The method of cleaning and preparing the pulp requires 140 litres of water to make one single roll of toilet paper. The carbon footprint of toilet paper made from virgin pulp is significantly higher than toilet paper made with recycled waste paper. This is something that Bumroll is aware of and puts significant care into. Bumroll is a toilet paper brand that manufactures high-quality recycled toilet paper two ply right in the USA. Bumroll is a local, small business that gives stable employment to many fellow Americans. Bumroll sources all materials from local resources ethically.
Every part of manufacturing toilet paper has a massive environmental impact and, essentially, environmental consequences.
An average of 27,000 trees is cut down every day for toilet paper production. That, alongside the 140 litres of water used to make just a single roll of toilet paper, and keep in mind the average American uses 57 sheets per day. We are at a time when we need to be aware of the health of the environment, and it’s impacts. Using recycled toilet paper two-ply is making that change and being a part of the change.
