One issue with Toilet Paper is the amount of unnecessary plastics used to package the rolls. Luckily, there is a great alternatives at https://us.whogivesacrap.org/collections/all It is usually shipped for free. If you do a bulk load you can just stock up on it for one purchase instead of just buying 10-20 roles at a time.

I needed to find a better bag for composting for a recycling center I bought for my church at cleanriver.com, recycling containers and products when I came upon https://buy.ifyoucare.com. They have an amazing array of high quality green products. I will post a review after I try a few that I ordered.
Tried the bags! The potato bags are stronger and can hold 3.5 gallons of water before breaking! impressive if you don’t want your wet garbage all over the floor. Yuck. If you are trying to go plastic free, they work fabulous. Would like to see a more sturdy back for lawn and leaf, maybe even reusable. But I guess you can leave that to the canvass bags. Anyway, for daily composting to take to your local compost center, these work great.
