“They” say you should not even be using it! I do not believe in buying cheap toilet paper and have been using Charmin for years. However, I recently learned from a plumber that Charmin is bad for your pipes. Charmin dismisses the claim, but I found several links supporting the claim. The cotton in Charmin toilet paper does not break down in your pipes and you should never ever use it with a septic tank.

I am now faced with a big dilemma. Should I use the environmentally friendly Seventh Generation Bath Tissue or try some other mainstream brand? Ideally, I would like to try the Seventh Generation, but fear that it will be rough…and then I would be forced to pick between my comfort and my desire to save the planet. Kermit was right; it’s not easy being green.
