With the recent panic over toilet paper it is time we learn a little bit more about it. And with that said it’s made from trees… there you go, all done. Actually, about 10 million trees are cut down every year to create enough toilet paper for the world. Americans use most, about 50 pounds a year each, the rest of the world averages some where around 33 pounds. I’m not exactly sure exactly what that means. Toilet paper was first introduced in the US in 1857 by Joseph Gayetty but it was primarily for the rich. By 1871 it was produced commercially for use and in 1883 it appeared in a roll.
How to celebrate – Try not to waste toilet paper. Don’t horde toilet paper, it just goes to waste (Joke intended). Grow your own toilet paper!
