Why you should put a reusable toilet roll on your bathroom floor?
The answer is that they can be very destructive.
In fact, they’re also the main reason why we still waste so much plastic.
They can be dangerous.
In fact, the plastic we do put on the floor is the main cause of soil contamination.
The plastic we use to fill our toilets is often a plastic that is made of fibres that are easily broken down and recycled.
The fibres are then mixed with dirt and gravel to make a carpet.
The fibres can then be crushed and mixed with lime to make lime plaster.
If that’s not enough, the fibres also get mixed with water to make mud, which is also a very destructive substance.
But these things can also be recycled and re-used, as well as recycled into new fibres and made into a new product.
This all depends on the specific type of plastic, of course.
But, when we put the right sort of materials together, we can create a product that is both safe and sustainable.
