As supermarket shelves around the world are cleared of hand sanitizer and toilet paper amidst the COVID-19 outbreaks, businesses are taking it upon themselves to share their wealth with community members in need.
Atlanta-based marketing firm Trevelino/Keller is just one of many companies that have temporarily closed down during the quarantine. With storage closets filled with enough toilet paper for 1,000 employees, the company decided to give away all of their TP for free.
The company has since launched the Toilet Paper Exchange—an employee-run initiative to distribute the toilet paper to the community through “Toilet Paper Tosses”.
Company employees have already given away heaps of toilet paper by hosting drive-thru giveaways during which they maintain social distancing by hurling rolls of TP through peoples’ car windows
In Wisconsin, the Milwaukee-based Mequon Pizza Co. has taken a similar approach by giving away free rolls of toilet paper with their pizza deliveries.
“Our regular, massive shipment was just delivered so for every large pizza you purchase we will give you a free roll of Cottonelle, 2-ply toilet paper, if you need it! Just ask,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook. “If you need toilet paper, rolls are available for purchase (limit 6) at our cost of $1.”
While other individuals and restaurants from New York to San Francisco have also started their own toilet paper exchanges, they are all hoping to inspire other people to take similar action in their own neighborhoods.
