Musings on toilet paper

I’m going to take a page from the Book of Dug today, and discuss … bathroom issues; specifically, toilet paper.

Now, I try to be a fairly environmentally conscious person; not overloading on the toilet paper, and buying Seventh Generation 100% Recycled Toilet Paper, which I’ve always assumed is just made of recycled paper, rather than recycled toilet paper, but I really don’t want to know.

Now, when you spend $12.00-15.00 on a 12-pack of toilet paper, you should expect some consistency in product, right?

But the stuff I get at Dan’s in Olympus Cove, vs. the stuff I get at Whole Foods is vastly different.

The Dan’s SG100%RTP is strong, but rough, almost like wiping your ass with paper towels and wood chips. The Whole Foods SG100%RTP is soft, but rips far too easily; making me debate buying a box of latex gloves for use when I’m plopped on the crapper.

Of course, then I’d need a HazMat disposal box for the gloves, because I certainly couldn’t flush them … and ultimately, I think that would be worse for the the environment, as well as more expensive.

It’s either that, or getting used to friction burns or excessive post-wipe sterilization.

I’m beginning to think I’m going to have to give up on this particular aspect of environment consciousness, and go back to plain old normal everyday toilet paper … which means trying to find the right combination of comfort and strength; toilet paper experimentation.


Who’d have thought that the process of choosing the right toilet paper could be such a bitch?

  1. I see myself as a environmentally conscious person. The one luxury I will not go enviro-nazi on is the TP……Seriously it’s just not worth it.:) enough said

  2. Obviously, I’m going to have to re-think that part of my enviro-strategy.
