This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

One tonne of loo roll made from recycled paper rather than virgin material
30,000 litres of water
3,000 kWH electricity (enough for an average 3 bed house for one year)

95 % of the air pollutantsbogroll
When buying loo roll look for recycled and ideally Chlorine free as they can use horrible chemicals to bleach the paper… which is not great for the environment and to rub on your sensitive areas!
The whiter the paper the more chemicals… worst for you and env.

Alternatively if not recycled check that it has this logo which means that it comes from sustainable forests.
