I’ve heard that toilets are our WORST environmental offence – one push of a button and we don’t think of it again. True.
Our shopping and consuming habits can be just as laissez-faire.
Well, I give a crap, and I’m sure you do too. Check out this great initiative from www.whogivesacrap.org They make 100% recycled toilet paper and donate 50% of their profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world. Oh yeah! That is sweet! Their website states “At present, 40% of the world’s population don’t have access to a toilet. Diarrhoea related illnesses fill over half sub-Saharan Africa hospital beds and kill over 2,000 children under 5 die every day.”
My spoiled little Western brain struggles to understand how incredibly spoiled we are here in the first world. 2,000 children a day?? No wonder Bob Geldof is my lusty man.
(oh, yes, that IS ME with Sir Bob way back when… )
I just ordered a bunch o’ dunny roll. It’s free delivery. Why don’t you do same? You know you’re always running out 🙂
