You might have your food, water and protection all planned out, but one modern luxury that will be sorely missed when the SHTF is the unsung hero: toilet paper. Toilet paper is something that we all use and rarely think about until it’s not there. You’re never as thankful for a new roll of toilet paper as when you think you’re out and find one emergency roll sitting behind you on the toilet.
Now, imagine a world where the core necessities are no longer being made, let a lone a luxury like toilet paper. Without some real alternatives, things can start to get pretty messy very quickly.
