CHANGE THE WORLD WITH TOILET PAPER!

Imagine having to live without a toilet and going out at night, in the dark, all by yourself, to find a private spot. 

People who do not have a toilet, have to relieve themselves in very unhygienic circumstances; in clumps of bushes, behind little huts or walls, or above open water. For 2.3 billion people, this is their daily reality. 

A third of the world’s population have to relieve themselves in open air because there are no safe toilets. This is not only uncomfortable, but it’s unhealthy and dangerous too. Every year over 760,000 children under five die of diarrhoea alone. There’s also added danger for the many women and girls who have to do their business in open fields where there is a greater risk of being attacked by men. 

The consequences of not having a toilet and being exposed to far-reaching health risks are almost inconceivable to us, but, most of all, they are unacceptable. For this reason, The Good Roll supports the ‘WASH and Learn’ projects run by the Simavi Foundation in Africa.

WATER AND TOILETS

If you buy The Good Roll toilet paper, you are supporting our mission - using the toilet paper bought here, to provide toilets in developing countries. 

We invest 50% of our net profit from sales of The Good Roll with our partners in the Simavi Foundation for the installation of safe toilets in East Africa. But, having access to a safe toilet is not only important in one’s own home, safe toilets must also be available in public places, such as schools, if we are going to improve basic health. By building these toilets and disseminating knowledge about hygiene, life-threatening diseases are prevented and children are able to go to school safely. This way, they can develop and break out of the vicious circle of poverty.

GOOD FOR MANKIND

No less than 32% of the world’s population live without access to safe, clean toilets. To us - that’s a scary amount! And the reason why we donate 50% of our net profit to the Simavi Foundation which is committed to building good sanitary facilities for people who need them. 

GOOD FOR THE PLANET

Tree-friendly; that’s how it should be. And the reason we only use 100% recycled paper fibres for our toilet paper. So, no trees are felled, less water is consumed and carbon emissions decrease too. Trees should be resplendent in nature, they should not end up in the toilet roll in your bathroom. 

GOOD FOR YOUR BOTTEM

...and for your well-being. Super soft and super strong, and just as good for you as it is for your wallet. No chemicals, added colours or fragrances are added to our toilet paper, so no worries! 

GOOD FOR YOUR FEELINGS

Finally, toilet paper that is sexy and catches your eye. And no more embarrassing large toilet paper packages to drag around, and no running out of it anymore. But best of all: it really does feel good to do good ...
