Costco shopping and the hoarders were back at it again. Hopped on “Who Gives a Crap” to order toilet paper and help the world. My friend Karen told me about them during the last hoarding phase:
- 100% recycled paper;
- They donate 50% of their profits to build toilets around the world (helping over 2 billion people thus far);
- partnered with companies who help build sanitation systems and provide clean water
My friend Karen knows everything. I bet you have a friend like that.
