Is It Time To Take A Pass On Toilet Paper?

July 14, 2015 2 min read

Bidets are starting to make their way into many American bathrooms. Long popular in Europe and Asia, bidets look like toilets but spray water to clean you after doing your business. Advocates for bidets argue that they are more sustainable and more hygienic than our current methods. Kohler has manufactured a bidet seat that fits into your regular toilet seat and it is gaining momentum as people become more environmentally conscious. Think about this: toilet paper is a $9.6 billion industry and only 2% of what is purchased annually is made from an environmentally friendly recycling process. We are basically flushing thousands of trees down the toilet each day. So, is it time to ditch the paper? Not quite. “Cleaner is always better, but a bidet can’t be a substitute for toilet paper,” says David Kaufman, M.D., a urologist in New York City. He explains that a bidet alone is not quite able to do all the dirty work of good ol' tp. Bidets are good for times when you are concerned about the spread of bacteria. You know, like after you have sex. They can be especially useful if you’re prone to UTIs, says Kaufman. “UTIs are most commonly caused by vaginal bacteria,” he says, adding that women who are at risk for UTIs can benefit from washing with a bidet before and especially after sex. Most places in the US don't have bidets so what are you to do? Kaufman says, "the next best thing is to hop into the shower and use a handheld showerhead." If you don't have a detachable showerhead, use your hand or a wash cloth. If you'd like a deeper clean in your routine, consider a bidet (but don't give up the tp). If you are concerned about the environment, look for brands that are labeled as being from recycled materials. Would you (or have you) added a bidet to your bathroom routine?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
