This climate + package assumes a city of 100,000 people, hoarding 10 packages of toilet paper each.
A standard roll of toilet paper emits 1.8g of C02. Let’s assume you are using a 12 pack of toilet paper. This means each package emits 21.6 grams of CO2.
12 x 1.8g = 21.6g CO2
In order to change that number from grams to metric tons, we will use the conversion factor 0.000001, and get a total of 0.0000216 per pack.
21.6g x 0.000001 = 0.0000216 MT CO2
Let’s assume that an individual is hoarding 10 packs of toilet paper - so 120 rolls of paper. This would emit 0.000216 MT of CO2.
0.0000216MT x 10 packs = 0.000216 MT CO2
Let’s translate this number to a larger city, with a population of 100,000 people. If everyone in the community was hoarding 10 packages of toilet paper, the community would emit 21.6 MT of CO2.
0.000216 MT CO2 x 100,000 = 21.6 MT CO2
