TREES FLUSHED DOWN THE DRAIN
Toilet paper is the common household essential for keeping your behind clean, and Americans use a lot of it.
Wash instead of wipe.
27,000 trees are used in toilet paper every day. Yes, there are recycled and other alternative material toilet papers. But one way to clean your behind, while also saving you money in the long run, is to use a bidet. If you get this kind of mess on your hands, you wouldn't only wipe it around with a dry cloth. Instead, you would wash it off in a sink.
Bidet attachments have a smaller environmental impact to toilet paper and are more efficient and hygienic. You'll probably not get rid of toilet paper entirely, but you'd be using significantly less. In many countries, it is common to use a bidet when cleaning oneself. If you've never used one before, it may seem intimidating at first. But, this change in habit will make a positive difference in your bathroom experience and to the environment.
