If Americans started using bidets in their home bathrooms, it would cut back considerably on the use of toilet paper, which would assist in saving forests. While this is true, this would be quite a change for Americans since bidets have never been widely used in the U.S. In the early 18th century, bidets were rejected by the English, who viewed the French import as a symbol of hedonism and sensuality. Bidets also take up additional space, which some believe is a turnoff for Americans. However, it is undeniable that bidets are cleaner, healthier, and have significant environmental benefits.
- Bidets arent very common in the USA but more so in Europe. Europeans have use bidets because it is healthier and cleaner.
- Bidets could eliminate the use for toilet paper and eliminate the percentage of germs that get on your hands.Ultimately making it hands free.
- Bidets would use less water than people using toilet paper because the amount of water to use a bidet is less than the amount used to make toilet paper.
“On the public health front, bidet maker BioRelief reports that almost 80 percent of all infectious diseases are passed on by human contact and that only about half of us actually wash our hands after using the facilities—making hands-free bidets a safer alternative all around.”
