I’ve got a handful of recycled paper and a broken dream

So after earth day, I thought I ought to be better to mother earth.  In an attempt to do so, I switched my cleaning supplies as well as my puppy stain remover to eco-friendly versions, since those are two things I use a lot.

Then I thought, gee, why not use environmentally friendly TP?  It’s recycled paper (not TP paper, thank goodness), and so it’s better for the planet than the luxurious Charmin I am used to buying.

We finally used the last bit of the fancy TP, and this morning I sat down on the potty to the new TP.

Instead of a nice, soft handful of pooper paper, do you know what I got?  I got slapped with the scratchy, one-ply scrap paper pile that made me feel a little violated in my post-wipe routine.

“It makes me feel like I’m really getting clean!” said Steve joyously.


I can’t use one ply!  You get that kind of crap in the theatre when you’re out, but home?!?!  Home is supposed to be where the really great stuff is.  I mean, I understand that I bought TP that was recycled, but isn’t there a way to help mother earth, and not remove the epidermis on my ass???

    Sew two pieces together with recycled biodegradable thread.

    Try the scott soft variety – it’s not recycled, but you don’t go through a whole roll in one crap.
    Also, it doesn’t leave your bathroom all linty.
    Environmentally, less packaging for more product – then recycle the plastic – that’s the best I can do.
    Oh, and recycle the rolls.

    Yeah, it definitely doesn’t feel like the good stuff. That Charmin feels like angels licking your ass clean!

    But I’ve been buying it for like, 2 years now, so I don’t notice anymore.

    Oh, that sucks. You should write the company a letter and go back to the soft stuff. No one deserves skid marks on their arse. Hehehe.
