Did you know that the average person spends about 3 years of their life sitting on the toilet? Quite a lot, right?
But according to the United Nations, around 40% of the world’s population does not have a toilet at all. No access to toilets also means no access to sanitary and health facilities, which is a big issue that a lot of people are facing. Additionally, almost 27.000 trees are being cut down every day for the production of toilet paper. Those are shocking figures!
So shocking that they inspired the founders Sander de Klerk, Melle Schellekens and Faisal Ahmed to develop The Good Roll. A unique Dutch win-win concept: The Good Roll produces a 100% tree-friendly toilet roll that is made from European recycled paper. At the same time, they use part of their proceeds to give as many people as possible access to safe and clean toilets.
They use 50% of their net profit to construct toilets in various countries in Africa. The foundation has one goal: the availability of sustainable sanitation. Their dream is to have all of Ghana equipped with toilets within 2 years.
They really give a shit!
Because of their positive impact on people and the environment, The Good Roll received ANBI status 8588 94 178. The certificate is awarded to non-profit organizations that direct at least 90% of their efforts towards the common good.
“It was so relaxing for us to just enter your order online and see the price directly. That was really a huge difference!”
19M → Grams of CO2
621 → Less empty trucks on the road
For The Good Roll, the advantage of using Quicargo for their shipments instead of the classic carriers is that they have more influence in the process of where, when and how they ship. With Quicargo they mainly do B2B transports to end users such as shops, offices and gyms.
Sustainability is one of the main pillars of The Good Roll and therefore sustainable transport is an extremely important and essential aspect of the company. That’s why they only schedule transport that is really necessary - and we got their back!
