Some recycled TPs honestly feel recycled (and not in a good way). We can honestly say Who Gives a Crap toilet paper is quality.
First, it’s 3-ply (most are only 2-ply), meaning it’s strong and rip-resistant, or in the company’s words has a low “poke-through-rate”.
It’s also free of dyes and perfumes so if you (like us) have adjusted to a less fragranced world, this will suit you just fine… honestly, who needs toilet paper that smells sort of like roses?
As for softness, no scratching or cringing going on here, we would never have known it was recycled in a blind feel test.
While we’re not sure if it’s quite “as soft as unicorn kisses and as strong as 1000 ponies” like they claim (mostly because we’re not sure how soft and strong those things are), we’re confident in saying it’s absolutely soft enough and very strong.
We’ve experience no poke throughs and no sore bums…
The great thing is they don’t sacrifice softness for flushability like many luxury-soft traditional TPs. Because they pulp clean the fibers at high temperatures, their rolls are entirely biodegradable and septic safe.
The premium Who Gives a Crap bamboo toilet paper is definitely softer, although the difference to us was not enough to switch to bamboo. Worth knowing that Who Gives a Crap ethically sources their bamboo from localized family farms in the Sichuan Province.
Still the Who Gives a Crap recycled TP is overall better environmentally since it repurposes waste already in existence.
As far as other Who Gives a Crap reviews go it seems as if ours is pretty bang-on. Just about everyone loves the stuff.
