With their ability to reduce toilet paper use, whilst improving hygiene, bidets are fast becoming a common fixture in our bathrooms. There are several advantages to getting one installed vs stocking up on toilet roll. To put it into perspective, we're going to share a few facts below.
Consider the population of the North American continent, that's not that short of three hundred and fifty million people last we checked. Now think about the amount of toilet rolls people are buying for themselves and there family each year. In fact, per capita, statistics say we each use around fifty per capita. That's a lot of paper!
That's around 17.5 billions rolls used a year on the American continent!
It will only take four family households of four people to use a tree a year in paper. This translates to an astonishing 21 million trees being cut down every year.
And this doesn't even begin to look at the economical aspects such as spending around $150 dollars a year on the stuff!
So you've heard the negatives of using too much toilet paper. How does getting a bidet come into the equation?
To put it simply, the spray functionality on these seats will clean you more effectively and reduce the need for wiping as much. In fact, some statistics show it can reduce the need of toilet paper by up to 75% in some cases. That's a huge amount of saving being made. If the majority of households in North America adopted such technology in their homes, there would be a significant reduction in the amount of trees being cut down for our use.
You can even make an argument economically too. Yes there will be a requirement to purchase the bidet, but over the course of a few years, this will be written off against the amount you were spending on toilet rolls.
We highly recommend getting one. If you're going to splash out on a high performance toilet, you should consider spending a little extra. A cleaner, more hygienic approach to bathroom use, whilst protecting the environment and your wallet.
