Who Gives a Crap is an environmentally-friendly low-cost toilet paper that’s made from bamboo, not trees, and delivered to your door. Who Gives a Crap donates 50% of its profits to building toilets–over $950,000 has been donated so far—and they saved a heck of a lot of trees, water and energy.
Roughly 40% of the world’s population do not have access to a toilet. Around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation—almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes.
