WHOLEROLL Saving money, saving time, saving the environment
San Francisco, CA April 10, 2017 – WHOLEROLL Inc., an e-commerce subscription tech startup with a global mission to help end deforestation and combat climate change with their sustainable bathroom tissue, is offering a timely solution for the consumer. For those needing to restock their bathrooms with a sustainable brand of bathroom tissue, or wanting to plant a tree for Arbor Day or Earth Day to decrease their carbon footprint: WHOLEROLL is their product.
“The average consumer has no idea that 98% of the bathroom tissue on retail shelves is made from the virgin pulp of full grown trees that manufacturers chop down. You have to ask does it really make sense to destroy forests to make disposable products? Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and trees are the number one sequestration of carbon out of the air, so why would we cut them down.” says WHOLEROLL founder Letrece Harris.
WHOLEROLL is launching a global Indiegogo campaign on April 11 hoping potential backers will see the impact that can be made globally if more people would transition to a more sustainable bathroom tissue roll. Anyone can be a part of the campaign to support the project.
Each roll is made with 100% high-quality fibre pre and post-consumer paper and whitened with non-bleach materials. Each WHOLEROLL box will include a unique reusable bag to help offset the use of plastic bags, and a tree will be planted for each box purchased, through their One Box One Tree commitment that’s fulfilled through their partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.

“There are 3.5 billion people in the world that use toilet paper. Only 10% use a sustainable brand. We’re going to change that.” says WHOLEROLL founder Letrece Harris.
WHOLEROLL is launching its direct-to-consumer ecommerce business focused on subscriptions in the fall of 2017, to provide the convenience of home delivery and savings which were reported as key issues when the company surveyed people around the globe during product development.
