Yes, toilet paper. Have you ever thought about how it’s made or what it takes to make a roll of tp? Well, I went down that rabbit hole. I love purchasing sustainable products from good companies that give back. But the one thing that I hate about switching products is getting ripped off. I have spent so much money trying out products that were crap and being frustrated. Anyway, so I reached out to someone I follow on IG and asked her what brand she recommended because I’m pretty sure she’s already taken this route. Luckily she had and said she loves Reel. So that’s the one I went with and I love it!! (Update: I’ve tried 2 brands and compared them below). They don’t use any plastic in their products, they ship to your door (free shipping btw), they have a program that you can subscribe to so you don’t have to worry about forgetting tp at the store, it’s all bamboo (which is great) and they give back by providing decomposable sanitary toilets to those in need. Wow, that’s a lot of positives there. Oh and the price is great. I was actually shocked to learn that it was about the same price as I was paying for my tp from the grocery store. Bamboo is just so much better anyway. It’s more sustainable and I’ll let you do your research on that because that would just make this way too long.
Ok, fast forward and I’ve now been trying out 2 brands of sustainable TP. Reel & Who Gives a Crap (great branding btw).
Here’s the scoop. I love both. I love that their both sustainable and both companies give back. So this was a difficult decision. However, here’s what I found out and what I choose to stick with.
Reel: Great company. Their TP is made with bamboo and all the packaging is recycled and recyclable.
The cost: $29.99/24rolls + Free Shipping

Who Gives a Crap: Ok, I love the marketing here. I laugh every time a box arrives.
Price: Recycled is $30/24 rolls or $48/48 rolls & Bamboo is $34/24 rolls or $52/48 rolls + free shipping.

Conclusion, they’re both great but Who Gives a Crap has more options and I feel that their TP is softer. So that’s who we’ve decided to stick with.
