Warwick residents encouraged to give a crap about sanitation
FEW people could confess they take the time to give a crap about global sanitation while they're sitting on the toilet.
But that could be about the change, with Warwick residents being encouraged to show they care, thanks to a new social enterprise in town.
The Warwick Collective has brought Who Gives a Crap to town - a range of Australian-made toilet paper, which gives half its profits to a water sanitation charity. Who Gives a Crap was started in 2012 by three Australian friends through a crowdfunding campaign.
Since the first run of toilet paper in 2013, the social enterprise has wiped its way across the country.
Are you picky when choosing toilet paper?
This poll ended on 23 December 2015.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Warwick Collective president Julia Keogh first heard about the range of toilet paper during a conference in Melbourne last year.
Ms Keogh has donated 25 boxes of the toilet paper to the collective through her business ESN Solutions.
"We will be selling these to interested local businesses, families and individuals for $48 as a way of fundraising to cover organisational costs," she said.
"Anybody who is an office manager or buys toilet paper knows it's a little more expensive than that."
Ms Keogh said not only does the money from the toilet paper aid local groups such as Community Network and Women of Warwick, it also goes towards helping global sanitation.
"You're actually helping an organisation that gives 50% of the profits they make from their product to helping social enterprise and sanitation all across the world," she said.
"It's a cheeky way to show you care."
