Here are four fine ways to stop using killer toilet paper and help save the forests, help save the forest animals, and help stop the climate change monsters that are killing our biosphere.
Have fun cleaning your poopy bottom with these:
1] Various waste papers – called NooPoo Paper.
NooPoo Paper may include printed office paper that is no longer needed, unwanted books, used packing paper, newspapers, grocery store flyers, phone books and other used flat thin papers.
Adding water to the NooPoo paper makes for a super clean bottom. With water, NooPoo paper can be as comfortable and cushy as commercial toilet paper. Prices range from $Free to $Zero.[more below]
2] A homemade water squirter – called a Bottle Bidet.
A Bottle Bidet can be made easily from a squishy plastic water or juice bottle by making a small hole on the side near the lid so it can squirt water from the side near the top.
Here are two ways to make the hole in a bottle so you can make your own Bottle Bidet. Heat up the end of a small nail or bent fork tine on a stove top while holding it with a pair of pliers. Once the metal is hot, melt a 1/16 to 1/8 inch hole in the bottle. A small drill or an awl will work too. [more below]
There are commercial versions of these bottle bidets too. Prices range from $3 to $40. [more below]
3] A sprayer on a hose attached to water line – called a Hose Bidet.
This handheld sprayer has a hose attached to the toilet’s water line. The Hose Bidet may be the best bidet method of all. This handheld sprayer head can be hung up on the side of the toilet when not in use. It was easy to install. Prices range from $10 to $60. [more below]
4] A bidet unit attached under the toilet seat – called a Seat Bidet.
These bidets that attach under the toilet seat are quite nice. Prices range from $25 to $200. [more below]
Compassionate Pooping with NooPoo Paper
I have had numerous housemates that have not used commercial toilet paper while at our house since 2009. Not all have stopped using the killer rolls though. Poopy scoopy.
I celebrate knowing that some future kids and critters will be smiling a bit more because of our pooping methods.
My used NooPoo paper goes into the waste basket, and then the compost or regular trash.
We don’t notice any additional odor in the bathroom or from the trashcan. The relatively small amount of poopoo dries fairly quickly on our *ultra eco toilet paper*.
We have a clean and sweet smelling home. But even if there were a slight to modest odor from the wastebasket – and there is NOT – I would accept a little short-term smell to help save those precious living forests that are home for so many critters. Plus the forests help slow down the climate change monsters too.
Compared to our NooPoo paper that we put in the trash or compost, there are so many other way dirtier things that are put in trash cans, such as dog doodoo, diapers, pet waste and dead animals.
For those concerned about the ink, I suggest using the unprinted side of used printer paper and other unprinted papers that are headed for recycling.
I don’t worry about the very small amount of ink that I might come in contact with when using printed paper for NooPoo paper. After all, we all breathe the printer ink from all the paper we are around in our lives. And for those of us that touch our mouth while handling paper, or lick our finger while reading, we are consuming that ink.
A little ink on the privates is not dangerous. Losing forests is.
By the way, a bunch of paper products contain paper that comes from illegally logged trees. It can vary from 3% to 90%. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegal_logging
So which do you think saves more energy?
1] Using used office, newspaper and advertising paper as toilet paper.
2] Recycling that office paper, newspaper and advertising paper that will then be shipped out of state or country to sorted, washed, cleaned, turned into toilet paper rolls, wrapped in plastic, boxed, wrapped in plastic on a pallet, shipped, transferred, then shipped back to a store where I can buy it and use it as toilet paper.
So join us in saving the forests by using old office paper, junk mail, newspaper, phone books and other used paper when you head to bathroom. And get cleaner and have more fun than commercial tp.
To save the forests, a big yes. To save money, another yes.
For guests that we forget to coach at our home, it’s pretty obvious what is expected and they figure it out in a few seconds. Amazing? I don’t think so. I think most peeps know what we should be doing to help our forests. This is one of those ways.
Reusing used paper as “Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr” is just sooo satisfying. Get a fresher butt, and save our sweet forests and critter friends.
NooPoo poopy paper can go into a trash basket beside the toilet. Then, that poopy paper can go into the compost or the regular trash. Compared to poopy diapers, dog poo and cat poo going into trash cans, no problem.
It feels soooo good to be pooing this way.
We can have a wonderful and magical life without using that killer TP that destroys the lungs of the planet and the homes of some sweet human and non-human beings. Let’s show we love those beautiful places with this simple ecological action when we do number two.
For all the life that lives to love, Stele
Pooping Kindly with a Bottle Bidet
A homemade Bottle Bidet is easy to make and fun to squirt.
Your personal Bottle Bidet can be made from a squishy plastic water or juice bottle by making a small hole on the side near the lid so it can squirt water from the side near the top.
Here are some ways to make the hole in a bottle so you can make your own Bottle Bidet:
1] Heat up the end of a small nail or bent fork tine on a stove top while holding it with a pair of pliers. Once the metal is hot, melt a 1/16 inch [1.6 mm] to 1/8 inch [3.2 mm] hole in the bottle on the side near the lid.
2] A drill and a small drill bit may work better. Make the hole as described above.
3] A sharp long tapering awl may work the best of all. Make the hole as described above.
Make some Bottle Bidets for your friends to save the forests and your friends’ lives.
I think a bidet bottle with a single direct stream works better than a sprayer with multiple streams because the pressure is focused in one stream instead of dispersed over several streams. Plus, multiple streams make it more likely that water will get on the toilet seat.
There are some commercial bottle bidets available too. Most of them have multiple streams though. Prices range from $2 to $80.
Search for bottle bidet, portable bidet and just bidet to see what’s out there. There are some good bottle and bidet reviews on youtube too.
Empathy Pooping with a Spray Hose Bidet
The handheld stainless steel sprayers that have a hose attached to the toilet’s water line are probably the best bidet method of all. The handheld sprayer head can be hung up on the side of the toilet when not in use. They are easy to install. Prices range from $10 to $50.
Gentle Pooping with a Toilet Seat Bidet
The nice bidets that attach under the toilet seat are quite nice too. Prices range from $25 to $200.
NooPoo Paper song
NooPoo paper, NooPoo paper

Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr song
no doodoo-paper for me where I live for years
old office paper and telephone books work great
our back behinds like it, do not fear
and the forests we save celebrate
no more Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr
we need those trees to make our air
the cats need the trees to purr
we’ve got class do not fear
by using phone directories, newspaper and old books
when you go to the bathroom… cleaner and more fun than TP.
adding water to the paper makes it soft and for super clean bottoms
it’s not to save money
it’s to save those forest gems and tiger and
for the forests that make our air, for the critters in the jungle
I won’t use Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr
so the critters play and tigers can purr
an I can get a fresher butt
so put used poopy paper in a basket
then take it to the compost or trash
lot’s of diapers go in there
so what’s wrong with that
it dries fast and does not smell
feels soooo good to poo this way
compared to the poopy diapers going into trash cans
for a little NooPoo paper there is no comparison
pee squared or doo squared
we all hear the call every day
but when its time for these
for the forests and the lakes
when its time for 1 or 2
choose the way of love
use phone books, old books
a reusable cloth or used printer paper
for the future critters and children
I hear nature’s call each day
from deep inside of me
those voices saying it is time
to the throne to poo or pee
speaking for the trout, chipmunk and marmots
speaking for the trees, bees and daisys
voices from the forests and the lakes and sky blue
saying now is the time to choose
pee pee and poo poo
when it’s clean up time to show I care
when its time to squat for these
choose the way of love
use newspapers, old books
a reusable clothe or phone books
for the critters and children
toy lat pae purr
ask your hand to play fair
toee laut pae purr

+ Keep Tigers Out Of Your Toilet via www.care2.com
Imagine that a small army of bulldozers and other types of heavy equipment came into your neighborhood early one morning and began destroying everything in sight on the street where you live: three-story homes; garages; manicured lawns; pretty flowers; backyard pools; even tree houses and the trees they sit in, with absolutely no regard for the lives connected to them.
If you are a tiger living on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, this is your reality. Those with an ear to the ground regarding animals in peril around the globe have presumably heard about the link between manufacturers of toilet paper and tissue and the destruction of tiger habitat in Sumatra.
As consumers, we are free to support brands that harm animals and the environment or reject them. Let’s work on increasing everyone’s awareness of this problem and on making deforestation and illegal trade things of the past. Animals are precious creatures that we all are meant to coexist with peacefully. If we don’t start now, when will we?
