Saving The Planet

Never leave home without it. Big Gay Bidet Introduces the Portable Bidet.

BY ORLY LYONNE

Big Gay Bidet is introducing the latest gadget craze: the portable travel bidet. The Bio Bidet TP-200 Portable Travel Bidet is the must-have travel accessory to keep fresh and clean while on the go. 

It does not require batteries and is instead chargeable through a USB cable that plugs into any computer, wall outlet; even a car! A convenient carrying case is also included. Not only is the portable travel bidet more efficient and hygienic than tissue paper, it is also more environmentally friendly. 

“There’s so much waste in our waste,” says company co-founder Lars Kleinstein. “Toilet paper destroys 27,000 trees every day. By replacing paper with a bidet, we’re cutting this number down and keeping more trees in the ground.” The Bio Bidet TP-200 Portable Travel Bidet is available now, along with a large collection of standard home models, at biggaybidet.com.

“Toilet paper destroys 27,000 trees every day. By replacing paper with a bidet, we’re cutting this number down and keeping more trees in the ground.”

The idea for Big Gay Bidet was launched earlier this year when Kleinstein and business partner Rick Tiner were turned on to the positive environmental aspects and health benefits associated with a bidet. Neither had a background in the toilet industry. Rick Tiner has spent most of his career in customer service and IT related jobs; Lars Kleinstein is a wardrobe dresser on Broadway. Both were drawn to the comedy behind owning a toilet shop, as well as the opportunity the store offered to work with products that promoted sustainability and helped save the planet. 

It was Kleinstein’s decision to name the company Big Gay Bidet because he is betting the LGBTQ community in America will be among the first to jump on the bidet bandwagon. “Bidets contribute to the happier and healthier lifestyle the LGBTQ community seeks,” he says. 

Long in use in Europe and Japan, bidets are becoming more popular in American homes, but what exactly do they do? Bidets wash the anus and/or genitals by spraying water to remove unwanted waste. Think of it this way: a toilet is used to capture waste. A bidet is used to help remove feces after elimination or in aiding hygiene. 

Today’s home bidets are built-in to a toilet or toilet seat, and some models even warm the body, dry afterward, and perform other functions. They can be a substantial investment but most bidet owners agree it’s a worthy one.

“That’s what makes the portable bidet the perfect gift,” exclaims Kleinstein. “It’s much lower in cost yet offers many of the important benefits of the full-sized home model.

“We love the portables because they have made converts of tissue paper users and convinced many to upgrade to the full-sized home model,” he adds.
