Go Organic Salutes: Who Gives A Crap
This year I received an odd holiday gift: a roll of toilet paper. Its colorful wrapper said, “Who Gives A Crap, good for your bum, great for the world.” Hmm… I took a peek at whogivesacrap.org. Did you know that 2.3 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet—40% of the global population! Around 289,000 children under 5 die every year from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation—almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes—wait, what?!!
When Danny, Simon and Jehan learned this in 2012, they used GoFundMe to launch Who Gives A Crap and raised $50,000 in 50 hours. (Simon sat on a toilet in their drafty warehouse and refused to move until they had raised enough pre-orders to start production.) Their mission: to help this global crisis by donating 50% of their profits from recycled and forest-friendly toilet paper sales.
Amazingly, Who Gives A Crap has donated over $1.3 million to building toilets and improving access to hygiene, water and basic sanitation in developing countries. And saved a heck of a lot of trees, water and energy, too. Wow!
Who Gives A Crap is a soft quality product your bum will like; it’s budget-friendly and delivered straight to your door. Best of all, you can feel GREAT about having a hand in bringing sanitation to people (and ecosystems) where the NEED is great. Turns out, every dollar invested in sanitation yields $5.50 in increased economic prosperity—who knew? “Toilets are magical.”
So, get started on your holiday shopping today—give yourself and the world a gift!
