Week Two | #52Env

Added on by Simon Pollock.

Week two.... Something different! Week one we collected rubbish, that was interesting and is continuing - despite the funny looks. Week two we thought we'd make a change as a family - it's not a 100% change, it's a step in the right direction though! We've changed toilet paper... Yes, you read right - toilet paper....


We were sitting at the bird display in Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo recently and they gave a lot of information about toilet paper and how it, and the 27,500 trees cut down daily to be used as toilet paper can have an impact on the environment - things like;

  • Animal habitat
  • Air purification
  • Sustainability

I've not researched these things fully, and I'm no rocket scientist, but I think if we can change gradually away from less sustainable to more sustainable products - easier on the environment products, then great! So, week two - we swapped to this three ply toilet paper...


You can find out more about Green Soft on their website or they're also on Facebook

Taken from their "About" have a read.... "Green Soft is the world's first premium quality toilet tissue that uses NO TREES in the production process. Made from bamboo, straw, reed and cotton waste from the fashion industry Green Soft is the first product to be produced by Saved A Tree." - yep, that works for me!

Their mission, should you so choose to read along.... "Our mission is to save some of the 21-million tonnes of trees that are felled each year just to produce toilet paper. The commercially grown bamboo used to create Green Soft toilet tissue can regrow to harvesting size in 4-6 weeks, unlike 40 years for a tree." - Yep, that's good too!


Oh, yeah, it's not so bad on the cheeks either.... I knew you were all wondering!
