One of our toilet paper suppliers is an amazing brand called Who Gives A Crap. They provide us with 100% recycled tissue with 50% of the profits going to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world. Now that’s a brand our behind can get behind!
Who Gives A Crap was launched by a crowdfunding campaign in 2012 by three friends Danny, Simon and Jehan. Inspired by the 2.3 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That number equates to around 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation.
Simon sat on a toilet in our draughty warehouse and refused to move until we had raised enough pre-orders to start production. 50 hours and one cold bottom later they had raised over $50,000 (watch the video here!).
