Save a Forest!
Did you know that the average American uses 57 sheets of toilet paper per day? That’s 20,805 sheets per year or more than 50lbs. for each and every American! That adds up to more than 100,000,000 rolls of toilet paper per day or from an environmental perspective, more than 15,000,000 trees a year! That’s truly amazing because American’s only comprise 5 percent of the world’s population but consume almost half of the world’s toilet paper products.
The Natural Resources Defense Council says that it takes about 6lbs. of wood, 1.30g of calcium carbonate, 85g of sulfur, 40g of chlorine and about 1,000 gallons of water to make just 2lbs of conventional toilet paper. The manufacturing of toilet paper uses large amounts of energy, water, and toxic chemicals that in turn generates vast amounts of air and water pollution and solid waste.
If every household in the U.S. saved just one roll of 500 sheet toilet paper, we could save 297,000 trees!
