Bidet Toilet Seats Are Environmentally Friendly
June 15, 2017
Did you know that the United States leads the world in toilet paper usage? The average American uses almost 24 rolls of toilet paper per year. This is 50% more toilet paper than our counterparts in Western Europe and Japan. In fact, if you stacked all the rolls of toilet paper Americans use in a single year, it would be 471,000 miles high – twice as far as the moon!
And it take an enormous amount of trees to create all this paper. As you can see in our bidet toilet seat infographic, over 9 million trees are cut down to manufacture U.S. toilet paper every year.
But here’s the good part. Not only are bidet toilet seats a more hygienic alternative to toilet paper, they are more environmentally too. How? Because bidet toilet seats use water to wash you, toilet paper is used more for drying purposes. All you need is a couple squares from the toilet roll to help dab off residual moisture from your wash. This means that you can reduce your toilet paper consumption by 75% or more. And if you have a couple minutes to use the bidet seat’s built-in warm air dryer, you can eliminate your use of toilet paper completely.
So using less toilet paper is certainly a way to be more resourceful. But it’s also more resourceful on your pocket book! By owning a bidet toilet seat, we estimate the average person will go from using 24 rolls of toilet paper – to just 5 or 6 rolls per year. And for the average family of four, this translates to a savings of roughly $80 per year. So it’s a win/win for you AND our environment.
