Unfortunately, the time has nearly come for me to cease trading. I still have some stock so will be continuing to sell it until it all runs out but I have made the very difficult decision to close Potty About My Planet. I just have too much going on with working as a Teacher and being a single mum and I want to make sure the time I spend with Molly is special. Currently, we spend quite a bit of time doing deliveries which she really hates.
This venture has been absolutely amazing and I have learned so much, as well as meeting tons of very special people and getting to know lots of wonderful customers. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making this such an amazing experience and making it one I will never forget.
How could I forget the first night when my first batch of toilet rolls arrived. There were so many and it's incredible how much space 45,000 rolls of toilet paper take up. I had 3 storage units, a packed garage and a completely packed house. I couldn't even get into the lounge for a good few months and just about made space in the kitchen so I could open the odd cupboard and use the oven. It was a crazy time. I'll never forget Molly saying, "how are we going to get out of the house, Mummy?"
I am going to continue donating to charity to build sanitation systems and toilets around the world as this has become very important to me and I still hope to visit a town where we have built one day so I can see the impact we have had for myself.
I feel really sad writing this post and am struggling to let go, but for now, it's the right thing for me and Molly.
I just want to say a massive thank you to all of my amazing customers. I have enjoyed supplying you and love seeing the same names pop up with orders. I feel like I know you. During lock down, doing the local deliveries was my lifeline and a chance to have conversations with adults face to face when my customers were the only people I saw. I thank you for that.
I hope you find another amazing company to supply your plastic free toilet paper. I am searching to see who I would like to support once my own box has run out.
Please continue to be Potty About Your Planet and I will also continue to make small changes which will hopefully make a big impact in the end.
Thank you again,
