Solar-Powered, Light Up Green Toilet Paper – Yup, Really

Here’s a relatable scenario: it’s the middle of the night, your bladder feels like it’s been caught in a vice, so you ease your way out of bed and attempt to navigate the pitch blackness of your abode to the toilet only to stub your toe, yelp in pain, and wake up your family members, all of whom flick on every available light and, thinking you’re a prowler, come screaming up to you with blunt objects at the ready only to return to bed muttering and laughing from your whimpered explanation.

As a way to save yourself unnecessary pain, embarrassment, and the use of light when nature calls after dark, we present the Glow In The Dark Loo Roll, a roll of toilet paper that glows an unsettling shade of green. “The Glow In The Dark Loo Roll derives charge from natural light or ambient artificial light,” Green Diary explains. The more light it receives, the longer it will once your residence becomes swathed in darkness for a good night’s sleep.

When you wake up feeling like your bladder is doubling for a stress ball, the eerie green glow of toilet paper will guide you to relief, and the lack of needing to turn on lights should save you a few bucks on your electric bill over the course of a month or so. A Glow In The Dark Loo Roll can be yours for only £4.99 on I Want One of Those.
