Taiwan gets new toilet paper

June 12, 2017

Taiwan has new kind of toilet paper that can be flushed down the toilet.

Until now, Taiwan drains couldn’t cope with toilet roll and it had to go in a bin.

Now a new kind of loo paper there can now break down in water, which means it can be flushed like we do in New Zealand.

However, the problem now is teaching Taiwanese people to change their habits. Most people are used to throwing it in bins instead, so signs have been put up, telling people what to do.
The sign reads:
“The answer to a big mystery! Toilet paper can be flushed down the toilet, did you know that?”
