      The case for recycled toilet paper

      Jul 16, 2010

      Did you know that at least 400,000 trees would be saved if EVERY home in the U.S. replaced just one roll of toilet paper made from virgin pulp with one roll of toilet paper made from recycled paper? That can’t be much to ask, right?

      Soft toilet paper is made from trees that are cut down, which also affects the forests and the entire surrounding environment and ecosystem. Using recycled toilet paper decreases the need for cutting down trees for this everyday household product.

      Not all recycled toilet paper is made equal though, see the EPA guidelines for recycled toilet paper.

      Good Restroom Hygiene- Provide Hand Sanitizer

      Jul 9, 2010

      Public restrooms might be dirty places, but there are many ways to stay clean when using the bathroom. Previously, we recommended using paper towels versus air hand dryers to spread less bacteria onto hands. Touchless dispensers also cut down on the spread of germs.

      Check out this video stating how to properly place hand sanitizers in restrooms. The more that others use hand sanitizers, the less germ will spread. It is better to have hand sanitizer readily available for patrons and employees, reminding them to use them and encouraging better hygiene. offers a variety of hand sanitizer dispenser systems for your business or workplace. Buy them to start promoting hygiene in your restrooms and bathrooms today!

      Recycled Toilet Go-Cart Art

      Jul 8, 2010

      Recycled Toilet Go Cart So far I’ve seen toilet paper art and recycled toilet paper roll art. But this is the first time that I’ve seen any recycled toilet art!

      This toilet go cart actually runs! It tops out at 35 mph. There are six toilet paper roll dispensers as well, a nice touch to the bathroom theme. Dave, the man who made this go-cart, also uses miniature cars for custom USB drives.

      Recycling is a big theme here at, so we give a big two thumbs up for this recycled toilet vehicle.

      Thanks to Inhabit for the photo!

      MCI in Moist Toilet Paper Wipes may cause allergic reaction

      Jul 1, 2010

      Are you using wet wipes or moist toilet paper instead of dry toilet paper?

      Last year we discussed on the blog whether flushable wipes were safe for flushing. Disposable wet wipes are in the news again, but this time for causing allergic reactions.

      Are wet wipes safe?Researchers from The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota published a report stating that painful rashes and other allergic reactions that four people suffered from were caused from a chemical called methylchloroisothiazolinone or MCI found in moist toilet paper. MCI is used as a preservative. People with rashes and reactions did not realize that the wet wipes were a part of the problem.

      Although not everyone is allergic to this chemical, about 3% of people do have adverse reactions, according to the Reuters article.

      Healthmad reported that “MCI, is well documented as an allergen in Europe. In fact, Europe restricted the use of MCI because of the increased sensitivity they were seeing.”

      So what should those who use moist toilet paper wipes do? Try using a dry product that does not contain the allergen. Or check the ingredient label for MCI.
