I have always wanted to be a well-traveled person who has extensive knowledge of the way other societies live their lives. I have always wanted to know the differences between countries and to be able to pick and choose pieces that fit better with my life, and who I am as a person.
One of the most intriguing things that a number of very successful countries use is a bidet. Countries like France, Japan, Spain, and Portugal all have adopted the use of Bidets with great success.
I would love to see the US start using bidets. The most important reason – for the environment. In comparison to a lot of other countries, the United States uses much much more toilet paper. When I sit back and think about all that toilet paper, where it goes after it is flushed, and how disgusting that is, I’m even more convinced to look into a bidet.
When I think about things I can do to help our environment, our earth, I’ll be honest that toilet paper never seemed like one of the things we could cut back on. It wasn’t blatantly obvious. Our society has toilet paper ingrained so deep that it takes a lot of thought and research just to think outside of the tp roll. I try and save energy at home. I make homemade cleaning products. But I never thought about reducing my toilet paper usage.
When thinking about the toilet paper per person, how many trees we have to cut down just to compensate for our country’s demand, and how wasteful that is, it makes me want to change my habits. It makes me want to set out to make a difference, even if the difference is just me and my family. There are so many different options out there, the market for bidets is not new. There is something for everyone, but I know the bio bidet bb 2000 is the one that has caught my eye.
There is so much good we can do with a simple switch to a bidet. Save water, save trees, save our environment.
