Green & Zero Waste Toilet Paper Options

The main option to go true zero waste when it comes to toilet paper is to use a bidet. Stand alone bidets can get pricey to install so one’s that attach to your existing toilet are a great option. It also helps with your toilets getting clogged since you won’t be flushing as much toilet paper down.

If it’s tough for you to completely let go of using toilet paper try purchasing recycled toilet paper. Combining this with a bidet attachment for your toilet will use less sheets as they are mainly used for drying off.

  1. I read your article online on PENNLIVE.com Based on the calcuations I did as a single person with two packs of 4 double rolls of toilet paper, with 264 sheets per roll, I should be in pretty good shape.

  2. I’ll s dingle male. Live alone. A large roll of toilet paper 🧻 can last me 3-4 months. I don’t understand what people are doing with toilet paper 🧻.

  3. This webpage makes no sense.
    I’ve used 23 rolls in 58 months (2 months short of 5 years). (I know cause I ordered on Amazon and it tells me how many I bought and when. I also know how many I have left of that purchase.)
    That means I use 1 roll ever 2.5 months.
