How green are you (or How stupid can you be)?

September 2, 2008

Filth! Utter filth:

The purpose of the family cloth is to reduce the waste created by toilet paper. The environmentally unfriendly aspects of toilet paper happen before it arrives at your home. Trees are destroyed for the necessary pulp and large amounts of chemicals are used to turn the wood pulp into the soft, fluffy, white tissues we like to use. In addition, those darn packages of t.p. are big and a lot of fuel is burned getting them to their destination. These concerns are causing people to ditch their toilet paper and use a family cloth instead.

“Family cloth”, you ask? Here’s the definition:

a stack of clean cloth strips are left near the toilet in the bathroom. After use the family cloth is placed in a bucket. Every few days the contents are washed.

The idea is so beyond stupid I thought it might be a hoax, so I googled it. Nope. Real deal. Don’t these idiots realize that you have to wash the shit out? In your washing machine. That runs on electricity. And uses water. And (hopefully) bleach.

Unless you’re doing your laundry by beating that shit out on a rock in a river somewhere (untreated sewage), you aren’t saving anything (except my sanity).

And speaking of toilet paper

    Clearly YOU never grew up on a farm with an outhouse, and just and old Sears catalog or, in a pinch, a corncob.

    City-fied pussy.
