TP Or Not TP? Brace Yourself, Another Shortage Could Be Looming.

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about whether or not some recent UFO sightings are actual aliens visiting Earth. 

If aliens are real, and they witness another upcoming toilet paper shortage and see how humans in the most technologically advanced country respond to it, they will either turn their spaceship around and not waste another minute here, or go full Independence Day movie on us and just take over the planet.

Because of an availability of shipping containers that exists, there could be another TP shortage, and it could happen soon. 

The largest producer of wood pulp is Suzano SA. Wood pulp is used in the production of toilet paper, and a report in Bloomberg said supply lines all over the world could be compressed because of the shortage of shipping containers. 

Any delays in shipments that happen in March, will have a spillover effect and the shortage in stores would be in April. 

It’s not just toilet paper that could be scarce either. The container crisis is real, and has affected places like China the most, where much of the world’s product originate from. 

Brazil is the largest supplier of wood pulp in the world and Suzano SA accounts for one third of global supplies. 

Keep your eyes on the skies. If panic ensues at your local Target, Walmart or Costco in the TP aisles, aliens could be watching and figuring out their next move.
