Today I picked up some plastic-free toilet paper from a janitorial supply store. The Scott brand toilet paper “exceeds EPA standards with a minimum 75% post consumer fiber and contains a minimum 90% to 100% recycled fiber“. It is two ply 500 sheets per roll and very soft. The price was very good too. 40 rolls for $32. Not bad for eco-friendly tp. I would rather it be un-bleached but beggars can’t be choosers. We will recycle the paper wrappings and cardboard box.
I will not lie. My husband is less than thrilled that I bought toilet paper at a janitorial supply store. He is worried.
I hope to win him over.
One roll at a time.
On another note, I have a cold. I am hoping that Cold FX, Fisherman’s Friends, hankies, warm tea, local honey and Buckley’s will make it go away fast enough for my possible day off by myself. I might even gurgle with salt and pull out my Neti-Pot in the morning. So off to bed in a few minutes to help the healing along.
Any home recipes to cure a summertime cold?
p.s. I found some zero-waste honey plus so many other great treats. I’ll write a post about it soon!
