Making kind choices in your everyday life.

Kind Company – (for loo paper!)

“You make all kinds of mistakes, but as long as you are generous and true and also fierce, you cannot hurt the world or even seriously distress her.” ― Winston Churchill

I have decided to start interjecting my blog posts with some little reviews of kind and generous companies I have discovered. Sending your hard earned money to a nice group of people who are going to do good things with it is so much more satisfying than sending it to a big company who’s only care is lining it’s own pockets.

For the past 6 months or so, we have been buying our loo paper from “Who Gives A Crap”. At the risk of over sharing, I will keep things brief. We get the 48 roll package (includes free delivery for $31) which seems to last for a very long time. The individually wrapped coloured rolls are pretty enough to be displayed proudly and the, ahem, comfort factor is excellent. Delivery is always prompt. This great company is Australian, the toilet paper is made from 100% recycled material and no toxic dyes are used in it’s production. Best of all, however, is the fact that 50% of the profits goes towards WaterAid who build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world for the 40% (!) of the world’s population who currently don’t have access to a toilet. 

I would love to do all of my shopping via kind companies such as this one – do you know of a good one to share ?

    Great tip! Thanks 🙂

    Sounds like a fun company with a great product and mission. We have been buying recycled toilet paper for years, in a 98 count box to get the best price. It is from a local green office supply store that our employer used to order from. Some people might think it is strange to buy t.p. through the mail!

      Yes, we did feel a bit odd doing the toilet paper purchasing via the mail but, still, it works and it IS a great little company. Hope you have a good storage cupboard to house your 98 rolls !!

    I would love to eventually be able to do all my shopping like this. Sometimes (often!) it feels overwhelming, but your posts always remind me – one step at a time to Tread Kindly. Thanks so much. x

    Me too Kate (wanting to do all my shopping via companies like this) – the information on our collective blogs should help us “spread the word”. Thanks for commenting x
