A Sustainable Bathroom Solution

Sustainable Toilet Paper

Today’s post is one of my favorite collaborations of 2019. And not just because I got to take pictures of my toilet for the internet. No, it’s even better than that.

Anel and I have a longstanding marital argument (you know, one of those) about toilet paper. I’ve always pushed for TP made from recycled paper. I know it’s not as soft or plush but it was what we used growing up so I was always used to it. It’s obviously better for the environment so it was a no-brainer for me. Anel, however, grew up with the fluffy, soft, thick toilet paper and his side of the argument was about comfort.

When we moved into our new house, Peach Goods sent us a box of their 100% organic bath tissue made from non-toxic ingredients. For the first time in 10 years of being together, we agreed on toilet paper, ending a fight that I never thought would end.

He loved how soft it was while I loved the sustainability factor, the subscription service, their dedication to charitable donations, and, let’s be honest, the cute design too.

I never thought I would have enough to say about a toilet paper company to fill up an entire blog post but I think you might be shocked when you read everything below about this very cool company doing very cool things…

Peach Goods Toilet Paper

Sustainable luxury: Peach Goods makes a luxury product that doesn’t sacrifice comfort OR or sustainability. It is soft and thick but also made with all organic certified sustainable ingredients, 100% plant-based, and 100% recyclable packaging.

Ethical manufacturing: All of their bath tissue is made in the United States with a transparent, fair-wage supply chain. The company is also committed to carbon neutrality.

Giving back: 10% of all their proceeds are donated to help victims of human trafficking.

One thing off my list: As you know, domestic duties add up really quickly in a marriage, especially when kids come into the picture. You can choose a box of 8, 16, 24 rolls that comes every 1, 2, or 3 months. We landed on a box of 8 rolls every month.

Makes a statement: Whenever guests come over, they comment on the peaches on our bath tissue.

Reusable box: The box that they send the product in is recyclable but also reusable. When I had a call with the PR gal running this campaign, she told me she uses it for her bikinis. I used my last box for storing away my shorts for summer.

Branding: I am a sucker for great branding and in another lifetime I would love to work at/start a branding agency. When I was at my last job at a start-up, our branding brainstorms were my absolute favorite part of the job. Anyway, I think this company has done a phenomenal job of creating a strong brand and sticking to it at every marketing touchpoint. From the box (wipe like royalty is genius) to the website to their social.

Giveaway: Head over to my Instagram today to enter to win 6 months of Peach Good bath tissue for your own household!

Thank you to Peach Goods for sponsoring this post. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.

  1. Thanks for sharing another way we can all help preserve our resources..

    I have been following your no more plastic bottle challenge and was inspired to try it with zip lock bags (I’m pretty good with minimizing plastic water bottles) since I use so.many. ziplock bags every day. I’ve started reaching for tupperware instead and I am cutting waaaay down on disposable plastic bags! Thanks for being a great inspiration!

      This is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m trying to do the same with Ziplocks. Have you tried Stasher bags? Someone gave me one as a gift and I just bought some more. They’re just like Ziplocks but reusable. Made from silicone I believe!

    How is having 8 rolls of toilet paper shipped to your home every month environmentally friendly? That’s 12 boxes a year that have to be flown and driven to your home, depending on where they ship from & where you live. You could easily purchase similar toilet paper at Whole Foods, Stop & Shop or CVS and recycle the plastic film in the recycling bins they provide for plastic bags. Also, who pays $3 a roll for toilet paper?

      I totally hear you, but I have never found a toilet paper like this at any of those stores which is why we had issues before. All of the TP that I’ve personally tried that is free from bleach and other chemicals (that I’d rather not be flushing down the toilet or using on my body) are flimsy and not very soft. Anel was not down with those! That said, if you have a non-toxic TP brand that you love that I could find in a store, I’d love to try it. Send me the name.

      To cut down on shipments, you could order 24 rolls every 3 months which is actually a great idea. I’m going to change my subscription to that!

  3. Hey Julia! Do you know if this TP is septic safe?

    What kind of dye do they use in the embossing of the design? They say they are organic and chemical free but don’t address the issue of dyes…any insight?

      On the website, they say that they use plant-based, no-bleed diffused coloring but if you want to know more, you can reach out to their “concierge” service and they’ll answer any questions for you. Here is more info: https://www.peachgoods.com/pages/concierge
