Do you love your toilet paper? I do!

Here are some reasons to get your tush excited about the company Who Gives A Crap:

  • 50% of Who Gives A Crap’s profits are donated to help build toilets and sanitation projects in developing countries. Great mission? Check.
  • The toilet paper is made of 100% recycled paper, and the company is on a mission to eliminate all plastic from its packaging. Sustainability focus. Check!
  • The rolls come wrapped in cute paper, are made of a soft 3 ply tissue, and come delivered to your door. Convenience? Check!
  • You can also bet your bottom dollar that there’s a 100% money back guarantee.

Let’s get to the bottom of it: Did I like the toilet paper?

YES! Toilet paper is not that exciting, right? In the past I tried to buy the cheapest, largest package with the biggest rolls that didn’t fall apart in my hand. My objective with TP has always been to minimize roll turnover and cost. Aside from that, I didn’t give it too much thought.

All that changed when I came across Who Gives A Crap. This toilet paper is actually something to get excited about! It’s made from 100% recycled paper with no dyes or scents. I was more than happy with the tissue’s feel. It’s super soft and it’s noticeably stronger than other brands we’ve tried. It didn’t flake off fuzz like our previous brand did, and it feels really nice and smooth.

There are two main reasons I’ll be subscribing for more!

1. Cost.

I assumed Who Gives A Crap would be significantly more expensive than the store brand I’d been buying. But when I did the math, I was surprised to see that Who Gives A Crap was actually less – by a lot! You can buy a box for $30 (for 24 rolls) or $48 (for 48 rolls). I used the biggest box to compare since that’s what I’d get.

Who Gives A Crap
  • 400 sheets per roll
  • 48 rolls per pack
  • 19,200 sheets per pack
  • $48 per pack
  • $2.50 per 1,000 sheets
Store Brand Mega Plus
  • 326 sheets per roll
  • 18 rolls per pack
  • 5,868 sheets per pack
  • $16.89 per pack
  • $2.87 per 1,000 sheets
Not only is Who Gives A Crap less expensive (including delivery!) but you get a LOT of rolls at a time so you don’t run out as much.

2. Convenience.

You can buy one box at a time OR subscribe! There is nothing worse than realizing you’re on your last roll in the house. We have three bathrooms where I stash TP, and I would always assume one of the other two bathrooms had extra rolls if one was low. Until that one time when all three are out and you find yourself making a last minute trip to the store to stock up!! I love that the Who Gives A Crap rolls have more sheets per roll (and aren’t 10 inches thick) AND that you get 48 rolls per box that comes right to your door right before you need it. (Plus the last three rolls in the box are packaged to remind you that you need more.) I also really like that the rolls are individually wrapped in pretty paper since I usually unpack my rolls to store under the sink. This is just a lot more hygienic than rolls exposed to the elements.

The company’s mission to support proper sanitation in developing countries and their efforts toward sustainability are all gravy on the top!

Plus the “cheeky” branding is hilarious. Check out the box copy above and the roll copy below :mrgreen:

The Bottom Line

I’m so glad to have found a brand that is cheap (in a good way), comes in a large package, feels great, and doesn’t involve hauling my two kids to the store to procure.
