We started Who Gives A Crap when we learnt that 2.5 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that diarrhoea related diseases fill over half of sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill 2,000 children under 5 every day.
We thought that was pretty crap. So in July 2012, we launched Who Gives A Crap with a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo.
Simon sat on a toilet in our draughty warehouse and refused to move until we had raised enough pre-orders to start production.
We delivered our first product in March 2013 and have been over the moon ever since. Not just because our toilet paper is gracing bathrooms across the country but also because we donate 50% of our profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
Our impact to date shows that every roll of Who Gives A Crap is basically providing someone with access to a toilet for about one week. When it comes to flushing out poverty and saving the planet, we’re on a roll. Together, we can save the world from the bottom up.
Thank you for giving a crap.
Simon, Jehan and Danny
