The End of Toilet Paper: Green Guardians of the Earth

Green School, Watch - May 18, 2020

Thousands of trees are cut each day to make toilet paper. This means that over our lifetimes, each of us is responsible for flushing down an entire forest. However, a simple change in our homes can help us save the earth’s precious resources.

John Hardy, co-founder of the Green School movement, took a simple step this lockdown to install a bidet in his bathroom; the roll of toilet paper there will be his last.

At Green School Bali, our composting toilets have buckets of sawdust to neutralise waste, and bidets installed in toilets across campus.

Do this for our planet! Join us now in becoming a Green Guardian of the Earth!
