We spend an average of one hour and 42 minutes a week in the bathroom, which adds up to almost 92 days over a lifetime. That’s a lot of time spent on the loo – and a lot of free time to make use of!

Sure, you could be watching TikTok dances or scrolling through dog pics on Instagram, but why not make the most of that time by learning something new?

At Sweet Cheeks, we’re all about making your time in the bathroom the absolute best. Keep reading to discover three awesome books that’ll keep you informed (and entertained) while you do your business, from the serious to the seriously fun!

How to Give Up Plastic by Will McCallum

Plastic is an environmental nightmare: it chokes our rivers and oceans, burns through tonnes of fossil fuel during production, and releases microplastics that aren’t doing anyone – humans or animals – any favours. We’ve got to figure out how to kick this plastic habit, but it’s not always easy knowing where to begin.

Luckily, How to Give Up Plastic is the perfect starting point. Written by Will McCallum, the head of Greenpeace UK’s ocean team, the book sheds light on the environmental consequences of our throwaway, single-use culture. Its approachable writing style makes it easy to grasp the plastic problem and the practical steps you can take to combat it.

Like Will, the Sweet Cheeks team are passionate about kicking plastic to the curb. It’s why we’ve gone all out to make sure our toilet paper rolls are 100% plastic-free, from the rolls themselves right down to the packaging they come in.


The Broke and Beautiful Life by Stefanie O'Connell

Find yourself wincing when you check out the prices at the supermarket? You’re not alone. The cost of living crisis has many of us feeling the squeeze, with a 2023 survey finding that a quarter of UK households regularly run out of money to spend on essentials. It can be a downer, but don’t lose heart just yet – there are ways to trim your expenses and get back on the financial track. You just need to learn them.

In The Broke and Beautiful Life, money expert Stefanie O’Connell explains how you can make smart financial choices today to chase your dreams tomorrow. Sprinkling a dash of humour over essential money advice, her book turns budgeting from a chore to an exciting tool to achieve the life you want to live.
