It is important we use our resources wisely. Toilet paper is a wasteful single-use paper product, and its production is eco-unfriendly to the extreme. It involves the destruction of forests, the use of massive amounts of water to create paper pulp, and chlorine-bleaching to turn that pulp soft and white. Though bidets use water to do the same job as toilet paper, they use very little compared to what gets used in TP manufacturing. Bidets are also way cleaner and less rough on the rump than wiping. Not only will a bidet make your time on the toilet more pleasant, it will also save you money in the long run, as you won’t have to keep restocking a single-use item.
Many countries around the world have adopted the bidet as their standard source of undercarriage cleanliness, and it’s time we join the party. To help you start your search, we made a list of some of our favorite bidets currently on the market.
