Performance review

  • For the 2-months prior to writing this review I used only who gives a crap paper towels for tasks around the house.
  • I must say they performed just like any other paper towels I’ve used before
  • They feel a bit rougher than regular paper towels but that might be an advantage
  • Towels might feel a bit shorter than what you’re used to. 23cm x 23cm | 9″ x 9″
  • In my absorbance test I spilled 1 spoon of water on a a regular wooden pulp paper and on who gives a crap bamboo and sugarcane blend paper towels.
  • The results show that both types of paper towels absorbed in a similar manner with a slight advantage to the bamboo and sugarcane blend paper towels.

Would I buy it again?

After reviewing them for 2-months, I would buy these paper towels again for the following reasons:

  • The quality of the paper is good and I felt no difference from regular paper towels
  • These are almost entirely plastic free (only the packing tape is plastic)
  • The sustainable cause of the brand is very impressive (donating 50% of profits to charity)
  • I’m deeply impressed with the amount of information ‘Who gives a crap’ deliver regarding their products. All of my answers regarding this product were easily answered by scrawling their website. As someone who investigates products a lot, this is very rare so I highly appreciated it.
  • I loved the design : )

What I didn’t like

  • I think bleaching the paper towels is unnecessary.
  • Who gives a crap explain why they bleach here
  • Basically they are saying that this is what costumers are expecting and that is serving their cause in the best way.
  • I think that people who choose to buy sustainable paper towels in the first place wouldn’t mind if their paper towels would be brownish and even more Eco-friendly.
  • On the plus side they write here that they are reconsidering it.
