I happened across this article earlier today, and this evening I’m still confused as to why we are going backwards.
I didn’t read the entire article because I’m not that invested in it and I don’t care. The argument for me to start recycling toilet paper would have to involve a lot of money in my bank account (not including the savings I would have from not buying toilet paper of course).
I don’t get it. Years ago there was a little rag that people would hang in the outhouses and that was your toilet paper and you had your own rag. I suspect that people used another person’s “cleaner” rag as to save their own but that’s only a suspicion I have. I digress.
Toilet paper is designed to break down and dissolve very easily. I have come across a bidet and I found it confusing. (That’s a story for another day.)
How many of you would give up your toilet paper and go back to the rag?
On a different note, I did find the Wikipedia article regarding toilet paper an interesting read. I don’t think I could wipe with sand though, the idea of that made me cringe a little.
