My friend Karen knows everything. I bet you have a friend like that. She knows the most eco-friendly companies, the best recipes, the most delicious and exciting restaurants…well, she posted pictures of her kids building toilet paper moats around her on Instagram. When asked where she got her TP, she shared that she buys from a company called Who Gives a Crap.
They use 100% recycled paper. Because Karen was a subscriber before the pandemic, she has received her supplies on time without any interruption. Who Gives a Crap donates 50% of their profits to providing toilets and sanitation improvements to developing countries around the world.
