There’s a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers.
Raise your hand if you went into panic mode at some point during the pandemic about running out of toilet paper? Yup ... we've been there. If only we'd all signed up for a subscription for toilet paper. Yup ... there's a subscription for that!
And we don't just mean signing up for a "subscribe and save" from Amazon (although yes, there is that too). The cleverly named "Who Gives a Crap" is an Australian-based subscription box that wants to make sure you never run out of TP and make the world a better place while they're at it.
Shipping out boxes stocked with 48 rolls of TP, the brand lets you choose between bamboo or recycled paper, and you can vary how often you want a delivery based on how many people are in your family. They even have carbon neutral delivery on orders over $25, so you can feel extra good about the impact you're making with your delivery choice.
Why a subscription box for toilet paper? Well, beyond the fact that it's something we all use, it turns out the folks at Who Gives a Crap wanted to make a difference for the billions of people out there in the world who don't have access to a toilet, especially the children who are the highest risk of dying from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. They sell subscriptions so that they can donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world. Already they've donated millions to the cause — yes, millions with an M.
Pretty cool, huh?
