According to an article in the Guardian, American’s taste for toilet paper is worse for the environment than driving hummers.
I don’t know where to begin with that, I really don’t. It hits close to home given that I just put toilet paper (which I affectionately refer to as “shitpaper” because it frustrates Benjamin to no end — he calls it “bathroom tissue”) on the grocery list.
Benjamin would be the first to tell you that I use too much toilet paper. I counter that I don’t use an excessive amount of toilet paper per session. I probably do have more than the average number of toilet paper applicable sessions per day, due in no small part to my high fiber diet.
The plan from here is clear: buy toilet paper made from non-virgin wood, use fewer squares per session, and eat less fiber. No one said saving the planet was going to be easy.
