Bidets Save Trees, Water, and…You!

Sure, bidets only use 1/8 of a gallon of water compared to the 4 gallons most toilets use, but how can bidets save trees? Think about how much toilet paper you go through in a year. How does 20,000 sheets sound? That’s how many sheets the average person goes through in a year, and all Americans combined use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper a year.

Switching to a bidet could completely eliminate the use of toilet paper in your household. Yep, 20,000 sheets could turn into 0. You would be saving 1.5 pounds of wood per toilet paper roll and if every American made the switch, 15 million trees could be saved. By eliminating the need to buy toilet paper, not only do bidets save trees, but they’ll be saving you some green too!

Bidets are a paper-free and hands-free way to get the cleaning job done. No-hands means no hand washing! So not only can bidets eliminate the use of toilet paper, but paper towels will be a thing of the past too. With 17 trees being cut down for each ton of paper towels, nearly 51,000 trees are chopped down every day for the production of paper towels. Their decomposition releases harmful chemicals and contributes to global warming. Completely eliminating or even just cutting down on paper waste can literally save tons of paper. In addition, gallons of water will be saved from the production process.

Try swallowing down these facts. Producing one ton of paper towels gobbles up 20,000 gallons of water and contributes to water pollution. One roll of toilet paper will eat up 37 gallons of water for production, meaning the production of enough paper towels for America will take 473,587,500,000 gallons of water a year! By using a bidet, you can save more than 3 gallons of water per flush. Ditch that toilet paper roll and you could save thousands of gallons of water!

Production of paper, as well as its decomposition, produces harsh chemicals like methane and chlorine bleach. By using a bidet, you won’t just be saving the environment; you’ll also be saving yourself from harmful bacteria. Without the need to use toilet paper, there is no risk for transferring bacteria to your hands. Since only about half of us wash our hands after using the bathroom, the risk for infectious diseases can be reduced by using a bidet.
