The Truth Behind Recycled Toilet Paper

By Published on .

The words "recycled toilet paper" alone induce the heebie jeebies. After all, what is it recycled from? But here's the good news according to Web series "Real World Green"—the recycled stuff doesn't come from, um, used toilet paper. (Whew!) It's actually made from previously used office paper or other paper types and then softened. "Real World Green" host Eric Gunnar Rochow explains that if every house replaced one-four pack of regular toilet paper with the recycled variety, we'd save 1.5 million trees from being chopped down. The episode was released Nov. 3 and amassed more than 25,000 views in the first month.
