Business Excellent: Business Excellent Grade toilet paper is a great option for people that want a comfortable bathroom experience and have a higher volume of use or are influenced somewhat by cost.

Economical: Economical Grade toilet paper is the best option for people that are strongly influenced by higher volume usage and cost but still want a good quality bathroom experience.

Eco-Friendly: Eco-Friendly Grade toilet paper is a combination of several grades of toilet paper that are designed and processed to have less impact on the environment. Eco-Friendly grade is for people that want an environmentally friendly product or need to meet Green mandates for certification or credentialing purposes.

If you have trouble with TP falling through your holder, take a core from wrapping paper or plastic wrap and cut it to the length you need for your holder. Then put it inside the roll of toilet paper and use as a roller. Just make sure it’s large enough to go over the prongs on each side of the holder. And don’t forget to keep it when you change rolls. Works like a charm for me. I tried using a paper towel core, but that was the same size as the TP core. You may have to experiment with different types of cores to find the right size. – Colida Marjoy, Customer Tip 

Green Classroom Cleaning Supplies & Tips

Jul 23, 2013

We have several retired/transitioned teachers on staff at ToiletPaperWorld.com and we recently asked them to compile a list of tips for creating a Green Classroom.

In addition, they put together their “wish list” of green classroom cleaning supplies which we’ve conveniently listed at Green Cleaning Supplies.

 Tips for creating a Green Classroom 

ReduceReuseRecycleWorld

- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle… and Upcycle! Think twice before throwing anything away.

- Be selective with what you print, and what you require your students to print. Emails, presentations, and conversations are all easy alternatives to printing.

- Turn off, Shut down, and Tune in. Turn off classroom lights when students aren’t in the room, at the end of the day, during heat waves, etc. Completely shut down computers, printers, and chargers nightly. Talk to your students about Green best practices.

- Only use Eco-Friendly products, ie BiodegradableRecycled materialsRenewableCompostable, etc

Tips for Washing Linens: Use Natural Laundry Detergent

Mar 23, 2011

Using green laundry detergent from brands such as Seventh Generation or Clorox GreenWorks may help prolong the life of your linens. Natural laundry detergents are more environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and made from all-natural, plant-derived ingredients. They are gentle enough so they won’t irritate sensitive skin, but strong enough to lift out stains.

Check out the article below for more tips for washing laundry from the Holland Sentinel. Though they are specifically referring to sheets and towels, these tips can be applied to any type of laundry.

We use sheets and towels daily, but given proper care, they can last for years. And while prolonging the life of the items we own isn’t as obviously green as, say, recycling, this practice helps conserve resources and save money.

The life expectancy of your linens depends on how much use they get, says Linda Cobb, who offers cleaning advice under the name The Queen of Clean.

Putting sheets right back on the bed will cause them to wear out a little faster, says Cobb, but the tradeoff is saving time with folding, particularly those tedious fitted sheets. A few other simple steps can help prolong the life of these household staples.

1. Use the right product

Your choice of detergent certainly matters for laundry items, but also the environment.

“Harsh detergents and bleaches break down fabric fibers,” says Cobb, who personally recommends the Vaska line. She recommends using “quality, safe, natural laundry products” to extend the life of linens.

2. Read the label

Check labels and wash sheets and towels at the recommended water temperature; some items call for a gentle wash cycle or should not be bleached. Most Americans also use too much detergent, according to the Whirlpool Institute of Fabric Science, especially as washers become more efficient and detergents more concentrated. Excess suds can re-deposit soiling matter on your laundry.

3. Don’t let soiling build up

Unlike blue jeans, which benefit from fewer washes, going too long between launderings for sheets and towels causes dark discoloration to build up that won’t necessarily wash out. Cobb recommends pre-treating any spots so stains don’t set in.

4. Thoroughly dry items before putting them away

Still-damp sheets and towels can harbor bacteria and mold, according to the American Cleaning Institute, formerly the Soap and Detergent Association. This is also true of damp linens stuffed in a hamper, or towels that don’t dry out fully between uses.

5. Line dry when possible

That fuzzy buildup in your dryer’s lint tray is made up of fibers that used to be part of your sheets and towels. This is normal for newly purchased items, says Cobb. But each trip to the dryer eats away, ever so slightly, at your linens. If weather and local ordinances permit, hang out your linens to dry and cut down on both energy use and wear and tear. If you do use the dryer, be sure to clean out the lint trap after every use.

Did you know?

Concentrated versions of laundry detergent and fabric softener use 15 to 50 percent less material than traditional packaging, according to the American Cleaning Institute.

If you happen to be buying new linens, Egyptian cotton is known for having a long lifespan. Organic cotton and cotton-bamboo blends are generally grown using sustainable methods.

Reduce Your Carbon-Footprint, Household Budget

Mar 11, 2009

Convenience is essential in most families, so it’s important to be able to find cleaning products and other household items that meet one’s needs immediately and keep the household running smoothly. While this may seem a fairly easy task, it’s actually more difficult than it seems to find ways to keep your household stocked with the essentials it needs and still be a smart consumer. More often than not, busy families fall prey comfortable habits that negatively impact the environment as well as their overall budget. Disposable everything has led to increased carbon footprints, as well as hundreds of wasted dollars each year in the average household. To reduce your impact on the planet both ecologically and economically, here are three simple tips from ToiletPaperWorld.com:

No More Cases of Bottled Water
Buy one good stainless steel or other reusable water bottle that you or members of your family could use every day, refilling as necessary, and it’s paid for itself in under two weeks. Not to mention, by avoiding buying cases of bottled water, you can avoid the unnecessary cost as well as the hassle of trying to recycle the used bottles, which in some cases, end up in a landfill anyway.

Clean Up the Way You Wipe Up

Rather than running for your Paper Towels every time you make a spill, try using sponges or dish cloths to mop of the mess. While paper towels may not be able to be eliminated from your household, you can however buy them smarter. ToiletPaperWorld.com carries Paper Towels, including environmentally friendly brands, that are perfect for outfitting your home.

Ditch the Single Serves

Single serving food items may be great for convenience, however, they actually cost you much more on your grocery bill and create unnecessary waste. To combat this problem and still get your family fed for the best value, use reusable food storage containers and buy their favorite foods in bulk. The savings will appear immediately.

A “Greener” Bathroom Tip

Jan 30, 2009

With the recent push in environmentally ethical living, it’s become essential for the average household to give something back to our planet. Whether it’s through recycling or waste reduction, each household has a responsibility to run itself efficiently in a way that doesn’t leave a huge environmental footprint. If your home is thinking about making the first steps to “going green,” start out in the bathroom by enacting this clever tip.

Did you know that there is a greener way to hang your toilet paper in your bathroom? While this tip isn’t about buying recycled toilet paper or switching to a more eco-friendly brand, it is incredibly important for everyone to know.

There was an actual study posted by Current Configuration at TreeHugger.com last year that noted over hang is better than under hang – yes, it’s true. Current Configuration, a blog focused on improving quality of life, looked at tear mechanics and found that people tear less paper off when they hang their toilet paper with the hang side over rather than under, a valuable yet easy fix for many homes around the world. Current Configuration writes:

Toilet paper has a natural curve, a way of being that lends itself to certain orientations on the toilet paper spool. If handled with skill and knowledge, it can provide an abundance of both sanitation and comfort, quilted together in each square of pillowy ply.”

You don’t have to change the type of toilet paper you buy to do service to Mother Earth. Sometimes all it takes is a different orientation to make all the difference. If your looking for another way to green your bathroom, consider buying your toilet paper in bulk from ToiletPaperWorld.com. Not only does this save on frequent grocery runs, but it also saves on packaging.
