Working at Home Means Softer Toilet Paper – and a Climate Toll

Soft toilet paper is better for your butt, but worse for the climate. Commercial TP is made from recycled paper, but the kind of TP we use at home is made from “virgin fiber…. primarily from clear-cutting forests.” In other words, it’s fresh from the tree to your bathroom.

Sheltering at home, we use more consumer TP and less of the commercial variety.
