How is this summer already flying by so quickly? I hope that you are able to enjoy some of your favorite summer activities, lots of popsicles and running in the sunshine. I can’t wait to share my race recap with you tomorrow morning!
I am so excited to share with you something that we can all do to take better care of our world this month along with a company that is doing a lot to help others in developing countries. This post is sponsored by Who Gives A Crap toilet paper. I have a great deal for you at the end of this post.
I think runners have a love for our world that is very unique.
We spend a lot of time each week outside as we get in our miles while exploring our world by foot. I have had some of my most meaningful life experiences while outside on a run. I’ve said a lot of prayers in nature during my solo runs. I’ve had moments of overwhelming gratitude for the beautiful world that we get to experience during this life. I’ve found a lot of solutions to my problems in my life as the miles click by on the trails or on the roads. I’ve built lifelong friendships out in nature and opened up more about life than I normally would. Spending so much time outside and running on the roads or in the mountains has really helped me to build a special love for this world.
I’m sure you can relate and have had a lot of special experiences with nature while you are running. I think this is one of the reasons why runners really want to take care of our world. We all want to continue to have these amazing adventures outdoors and for the generations to come.
Twenty-seven thousand trees are cut down daily to make toilet paper- most toilet paper is made from cutting down virgin trees! Who Gives A Crap is making a difference by only using 100% recycled paper and bamboo in their toilet paper! Inspired by Plastic Free July, they have committed to eliminating even the smallest bits of plastic as quickly as possible from their supply chain. We can all join them this month on their plastic free journey by joining in on their Plastic Free Challenge!
We are going to go plastic free over here and I hope you will too!
My favorite part about Who Gives A Crap is the fact that they donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
From the founder, “We started Who Gives A Crap when we learnt that 2.3 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and that means that around 289,00 children under five die every year from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation.” That is absolutely heartbreaking to me. I had no idea how big of a problem this was for so many people. I really wanted to spread the word about Who Gives A Crap because they are committed to helping.
Toilet paper is something that we all use, so why not buy these products from a company that is dedicated to helping those around the world that need our help? Their toilet paper is extremely soft 3 ply. The packaging is adorable (Brooke called all of the sprinkle ones for the kid’s bathroom:). They also offer forest friendly tissues and paper towels!
