Toilet Paper

Step 1: What Ply Works for You?

1 Ply - 1 ply toilet paper means one layer of paper. People use about the same amount of sheets regardless of the ply count, so 1 ply paper usually results in less paper being used.

• Averages 1000 sheets per roll, 96 rolls per case

• Breaks down faster, resulting in less clogging potential in waste pipes

2 Ply - 2 ply toilet paper means two layers of paper. People use about the same amount of sheets regardless of ply count, so 2 ply paper
tends to result in more paper being used.

• Averages 500 sheets per roll, 96 rolls per case

• Thicker paper generally considered more comfortable

Step 2: What Size Works for You?

Standard Roll - Standard rolls of toilet paper oer the most variety in conjunction with the dispenser type and selection of paper product.

• Largest variety of paper products available

• Most affordable pricing available

• Fewer sheets per roll - typically 1000

Jumbo Roll - Jumbo rolls have been favored in facilities where fewer service visits are required.

• Requires a larger dispenser to accommodate roll size

• More sheets per roll - typically 2000

Coreless Roll - The coreless roll is able to deliver more paper through the elimination of the standard core size.

• Requires a coreless spindle-equipped dispenser

• The most sheets per roll - typically 3000

Step 3: What Material Works for You?

Environmentally Preferable Materials - Companies trying to achieve sustainability goals should give preference to toilet paper that
consists of materials that represent a reduction in environmental impact over their life cycles, when compared to conventional products.

• Many products available with 100% recycled content
(post-consumer + pre-consumer)

• Whitened without the use of chlorine; no dyes or fragrances used

Conventional Materials - Conventional toilet tissue is produced from virgin wood fiber instead of recycled fibers, and many chemicals are used throughout the production process.

• Considered to be the softest type of tissue available

• Chlorine whitening, dyes, and fragrances can be an irritant to humans and pose a threat to waterways
