Every now and then a brand comes along that I want to just shout about at the top of my voice because they’re making an awesome product or service that does good and still manages to beat the bigger retail brands when it comes to price.Who Gives A Crap are one of them, and yes this is an advertisement, because yes, I want to spread the word about this business to help them sell more toilet paper, to make less trees get cut down, to save more water and emit less carbon into the air. Oh, and the more sales generated, the more money gets donated to charity because Who Gives A Crap, on top of providing toilet paper that’s made without trees, are making it their mission to make sure everyone in the world has access to a toilet.
They currently donate 50% of profits to charities who all have deep experience and skill in implementing high impact sanitation projects throughout the developing world. It’s totally unimaginable, and shocking, that 2.3 billion people don’t have access to a toilet. That’s 1 in 3 people – with often devastating consequences – around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes. To date, Who Gives A Crap have donated over £650,000 to their charity partners
OK, so tell me more
Who Gives A Crap, a profit for purpose business started in Australia. They make forest friendly toilet paper, tissues and paper towels. In other words, their products are made from 100% recycled paper or bamboo. Isn’t it weird that most toilet paper is still made with virgin trees? That we’re cutting down trees to wipes our bums with and then flush down the toilet? And that we’re actually consuming loads of energy and water along the way?

This is really. Important. Stuff.
