Let’s face it, climate change is a problem that isn’t going away, and there’s never been a more important time like the present to think consciously about how we’re affecting the planet.

Companies are popping up everywhere that help us provide easy and accessible options to sustainable products. These companies opt for biodegradable packaging and/or recycle packaging, minimal plastic, and lower carbon emissions.

2) Who Gives A Crap
Who Gives A Crap have been changing the way we wipe since 2010. The company has developed a simple business model selling eco-friendly toilet paper made from recycled toilet paper and bamboo. All of their packaging is biodegradable and/or recycled. If that wasn’t enough, they also have a strong focus on philanthropy. 50% of their profits go to funding sanitation projects in the developing world. The company started Who Gives A Crap when they learnt that 2.4 billion people don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhea diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. Next time you’re buying toilet paper, keep this amazing company in mind—their products are really amazing for our planet, way more than any regular toliet paper brand does. We love using this for better hygiene around an everyday product that can make us use a lot of manpower and waste on this planet.
