We're betting your first thought is "ewww..." After you get over your skiivies, stop and think. According to Molly Roemer, LA City editor of green blog site IdealBite, as quoted in Angeleno magazine, "While people have no problem using recycled paper towels [although we hope you've cut down on paper towel use of any kind], they still have a problem wiping their bums with recycled toilet paper... "

The statistics are hard to beat. According to the National Resources Defense Council, if every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin fiber toilet paper (500 sheets) with 100% recycled ones, we could save 423,900 trees. Stop for a minute and think of how many rolls you use in a year. Now, get over the ick factor.
