Toilet paper started to be mass-produced in the 14th century and modern commercial toilet paper originated in the 19th century. Humans have long used such a product to cleanse themselves. Toilet paper comes in various numbers of plies (layers of thickness), from one- to six-ply, with more back-to-back plies providing greater strength and absorbency.
More than seven billion rolls of toilet paper are sold yearly in the United States. The global daily production of toilet paper is about 83,048,116 rolls per day.
It takes about 384 trees to make the toilet paper that one person uses within their lifetime (approximately 810 rolls of toilet paper would be produced from a single tree). At Plastic Conscious, this doesn't sit well with us. Trees are essential to the earth in countering climate change. They provide much needed oxygen and and aid reducing CO2 levels. Losing this many trees, that take decades to replace, just so we can clean ourselves is irresponsible and wasteful.
