Local Businesses

Güdco

There is so much good in the world!  People are so quick to judge, complain or moan about the state of our country & everything there is going on.  Yes, we may have issues, but we need to work together for change & we need to change our mindsets to find good in the world rather than allowing negativity to take over.

Part of the way I am consciously looking for good is by hunting for local businesses that peak my interest.  I am looking for those that catch my eye, share some of the same interests as me, or are simply working hard to be the change we all need in the world.  And then, I came across Güdco.  The name of their toilet paper made me laugh out loud (Güdsheet) & I was so interested to find out more about what they are doing.  I spent a little bit of time browsing through their website, & then immediately placed an order for a big box of toilet paper.

Now, I know you may be wondering how I could possibly write a blog about toilet paper??  Read on & you will know why!

Tell me a bit more about what you do:
We sell Plastic Free Toilet Paper made from Sugarcane named Güdsheet – which helps provide Toilets & Toilet Paper to underprivileged schools & crèches in need. 

We believe that most people want to help those less fortunate, they just might not have the time or means to do so.

Güdco products provide an easy and convenient way for you to help, whilst purchasing a commodity you need. By using Güdsheet, you’re consciously helping to change SA for good.

I see there are more benefits to buying your sheet than just saving the environment – please tell me more:
Millions of South Africans don’t have access to a toilet, or even toilet paper.

Poor sanitation is the main cause of diarrhoea related diseases that kill hundreds of people every day.

It’s also a leading contributor to endemic poverty, which is a major drag on the economic growth of our country.

Through your purchases, Güdsheet helps provide Toilets & Toilet Paper to underprivileged schools & crèches in need.

Why toilets & TP? Because they provide dignity, health and an improved quality of life.

What makes your toilet paper different to the conventional type:

Our rolls are made from 60% sugar cane fibre and 40% FSC approved wood pulp to ensure sustainable afforestation. Each roll is individually hand-wrapped with love, in eco-friendly paper to promote hygiene, and packed in recycled boxes to replace plastic.

We don’t use any chlorine, acids, inks, dyes, scents or weird perfumes in our toilet paper. It is bleached using an elemental chlorine free (ECF) process that’s good for you and the environment.

Is it sewer & septic tank friendly:

Yes, Güdsheet is 100% biodegradable. Our toilet paper is made from natural fibres which can quickly dissolve back into the earth – making it safe for all disposal systems.

Boxes

Quote you live by: 
Bad sheet happens. Just flush it and move on.
Anything else you want to add:
Did ü know? More people have Mobile Phones than Toilets in the World. Think about that next time you’re texting on the loo.

Doesn’t this inspire you to get out there & make a difference?  And don’t you want to rush to your computer & place an order for your very own batch?

I am loving everything that they stand for, & have learnt so much from them already.  They are out there making a positive impact on the lives of others, & using a commodity that we all need ourselves.

And yes, the toilet paper is GüD!!  I won’t be switching brands any more…
