In 2015 it was estimated that global plastic pollution was approximately 380 million tonnes. And by 2015, the world had produced 7.8 billion tonnes of plastic.

Mirum has therefore been designed with the core fundamentals of being fully biodegradable and 100% recyclable. This means that not only does Mirum contain no petrochemicals but it fits nicely into the circular system. In other words, Mirum is manufactured, used, returned to NFW, disassembled, and then reassembled into fresh Mirum material. Any Mirim not returned to NFW will return to the soil and biodegrade naturally, releasing its nutrients back into the soil. In this way no inputs are lost, extra CO2 is not created and the conditions for a circular system are met.

At present, Americans use close to 8 million tons of toilet paper every year, and forests are being decimated in line with demand. We cannot simply cut these forests down and expect no consequences. Nor can we replant the areas with a single species of tree and then manage the wildlife within it and call it a fair exchange. I believe that the use of bidets can reduce this consumption and in doing so reduce deforestation significantly.
