TP has been a topic of conversation for a few reasons in 2020. It’s likely none of us will forget #toiletpapergate and the apocalypse-style hoarding of packets of loo paper in the earliest days of the pandemic. Ransacked supermarket aisles aside, toilet paper has also been in the limelight recently because of its environmental woes—and there are a few.
Highlighted in a viral 2019 report titled “The Issue With Tissue”, loo paper ticks a lot of bad boxes, from plastic packaging to harmful industrial chemicals, excessive tree logging, devastated ecosystems, and even greenwashing.
Thankfully though, there are a number of brands in the mix offering a truly sustainable, direct-to-consumer alternative, and the newest crew to hit the market is Wipe That.
Wipe That’s three-ply toilet paper is made from 100% recycled paper and made without scents, dyes, or harsh chemicals. Boxes are delivered directly to your door (so you can skip the supermarket) and each roll is individually wrapped in a cute design (that will actually look cool in your bathroom).
Wipe That is also committed to the Australian Carbon Neutral Plant A Tree Project. This program allows organisations to actively fund the planting of mixed native species in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, which is something we can definitely get behind.
