Eco-Conscious Urban Living

Now Available: Who Gives A Crap Recycled Toilet Paper!

Here at Green Rock Apartments, we’re devoted to providing a wonderful living experience for our tenants that is in-line with our mission statement of “Eco-Conscious Urban Living”.

In an effort to help our tenants reduce their carbon footprint, we now offer rolls of recycled, 100% plastic-free, 3-ply toilet paper from Who Gives A Crap! They will be available to all tenants in addition to the soaps, compost bags, and compostable pet waste bags we’ve been providing for awhile now.

Be conscious of how many you take, make sure you leave some for the other tenants, and please let us know as soon as the stock runs low so we can order more!

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.
