    Surprise! Seppos use more toilet paper than anyone else

    Americans use too much toilet paper and it’s hurting the planet, report says


    Americans use more toilet paper than anyone else in the world, helping destroy the habitats of native people who live where it is sourced and contributing to global warming, a research study said on Wednesday.





    U.S. consumers use roughly three rolls of toilet paper a week, accounting for a fifth of the world’s tissue consumption, according to the report by environmental groups Stand.earth and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

    Single-use tissue products such as toilet paper used in the United States are made from wood pulp, mostly derived from logging in the old-growth northern, or boreal, forest in Canada, where logging companies clear cut more than a million acres (405,000 hectares) every year, the NRDC said.

    The forest plays a key role in combating global warming because it absorbs and stores carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas that contributes to it, the group said.


    Logging releases that carbon into the atmosphere. Canada’s forest area has declined more than 9 percent since 2000 from logging, it said.

    Unlike soap-dodging Brittles who never use enough.

    Not to worry...I only buy sustainable toilet paper. With my cooking I need lots of it too...




    Us Seppos need to get a clue about the spray attachment.

    Brittles use corn cobs. The poor families tie a corn cob to a piece of string and afix the string to the shithouse wall. Change it once a month ... or so.

    Give them that fucking tracing paper shit we used to have in school. They'd probably wipe their arses with their hands and (hopefully) wash them instead.

    And all this time I thought the waste of paper award may go to Laos. Here is why.

    You've got a:
    500 kip note
    1,000 kip note
    2,000 kip note
    5,000 kip note
    10,000 kip note
    20,000 kip note
    50,000 kip note
    100,000 kip note

    I needed a paper bag just to carry this kip around and on top of it all none of it is worth a crap.

    I did find some bamboo infused ass wipe though at the local mart to help me through the hard times.

    On a brighter note from what I've seen the paper companies in central wisconsin own their land and manage it by taking pine and planting pine. A major concern is the chemicals used in the process that gets into rivers and lakes polluting the whole ecosystem.

    Big names come to mind like Fort Howard, James River and the likes. Luckily we stopped the PCBs from going into the system years ago. The sediment in the system is still there however it's encapsulated by more layers of silt.

    They were dredging the Fox River system many years ago to get rid of the "stuff" wich some say released even more.
    Sad but true.

    At least we are past the awareness level and have taken measures to thwart further catastrophic pollution.

    Lets just hope others do the same around the globe because from what I've seen lately it's really turned into a shit hole.

    the septic fish.
    Surprise, you ate it.

    Well if you look at the amount of ass licking the Brits do, they don't need so much paper.

    Do those Brexit boxes contain toilet tissue? It can double as a tissue.

    And no I don't place entire populations of people into neat little boxes.

    It's bigger than that.

    "Izal" brand, as I recall.. Used to see this written on the cubicle walls;

    Q: Whats Izal got in common with Charles Bronson?

    A: They're both rough, tough, and don't take shit from anyone.

    I thought that was just an Australian phenomenon. What sort of twit thought up the idea of using that stuff, anyway ? These were the people in charge of our education !

    German bogs are noted for the ledge in the bowl. Used to catch specimens for examination, before flushing. Without it, Yereman expats just fling the stuff anywhere.
    Do you use paper for cleaning your glass topped coffee table? Ask Jeff if you’re struggling for an answer.

    Compared to all the other glaring shortfalls, tracing paper seems the least of the worries.

    Problem solved. As I read somewhere, "Toilet paper is a problem for us more hirsute gentlemen. It's like trying to clean peanut butter out of a shag carpet with a paper towel."
