North Americans are becoming increasingly interested in bidets, yet they haven't quite won their well-deserved recognition. Once a predominantly-European amenity, bidets have become a common feature of the restroom experience virtually everywhere else except North America.
You probably already know, or can imagine that North Americans produce mountains of waste annually. In this continent alone, we use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper per year. Let's break that down.
36,500,000,000 rolls of TP
15,000,000 trees + 473,587,500,000 gallons of water + 17.3 terawatts of power
If you don't know what that means, it means that we're chopping down a lot of trees, wasting a lot of water, and using even more power to produce a single-use product that isn't even as beneficial to our personal hygiene as we think. In fact, using a bidet is a lot more therapeutic on damaged skin than toilet paper- and generally softer on the tush in everyday life.
We're not saying that we're going to eliminate the use of paper in restrooms altogether. But we are saying that by using bidets we can significantly reduce the amount of paper being used daily and therefore contribute a lot less to the waste distribution mentioned above. We're trying our best to make as little of an impact as possible, so here we are, splashing water in our asses to hopefully be the difference we want to see in the world.
