The Good Roll Foundation
We Roll Out Goodness
Who We Are
The Good Roll Foundation is the philanthropic arm of The Good Roll, makers of 100% recycled toilet paper which allocates 50% of net profits to building toilets and sanitation units in developing countries. Initially used to allocate these funds to external partners, The Good Roll Foundation is now setting out on its own to design and build sanitation facilities with the aim to affect the lives of 20,000 people by the end of 2020.
The short version: Build the best toilet.
The long version: Develop various toilet designs and business models based off of the current and anticipated needs of communities in developing nations, with a current focus on Ghana and a plan to expand within Africa and into Asia. Through development and construction of the sanitation facilities, The Good Roll Foundation aims to follow the UN Sustainable Development Goals to sustainably improve the lives of as many people as possible while addressing several vital issues, such as food insecurity and disease eradication, promoting sexual reproductive health and basic education, and creating as many local job opportunities as possible.
We believe that sanitation, human decency, and a good life come above everything. This is why we are dedicated to working in partnership to create the best toilet, and then share this information with as many people and organizations as possible; collaboration is the only way we can all achieve our common goals and improve the lives of people across the globe.
In 2015, the United Nations Member States set out a list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals meant to eradicate poverty and deprivation by the year 2030.
Here at The Good Roll Foundation, we are focused on Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation. But we do not find that good enough. Currently, our work is addressing 15 of the 17 Goals, with new designs in motion to focus on a 16th Goal in the not-too-distant future.
