Kush your Tush
Hemp paper products are renewable, easy to manufacture and inexpensive alternatives to mainstream toilet paper. According to the Ecological Agriculture Projects “an acre of hemp will produce as much pulp for paper as 4,1 acres of trees over a 20 year period.” In addition, natural, organic hemp fibre is recyclable five to eight times. But that’s not all, other benefits include: no septic system clogs and no need for chemical bleaching that cause nasty hemorrhoids.
Bidet Bidet Bidet
In the Indian subcontinent toilet paper isn’t even a thing, 95% use a water hose. In Japan your tech-y loo will give you a refreshing spritz. In Italy a bidet is in every corner of every bathroom. So why can’t we all adopt this method? It’s heralded as cleaner and healthier for your most private parts!
Bamboo or Recycled Pulp rolls
The most sustainable material after hemp is a roll made form 100% clean recycled paper products—these are not made from recycled toilet paper, but other paper products that are re-processed into tissue pulp.
Another material to look out for is 100% bamboo. A great alternative if the bamboo is also sourced sustainably.
