Last Friday, 33-year-old surfer and physical therapist Jonny Blue decided he would take North County San Diego’s TP shortage into his own hands, literally. Knowing there are elderly residents (the ones that really shouldn’t have to go searching for bathroom necessities in hectic and crowded spaces) in need, he posted up at one of the busiest intersections in the city of Encinitas and started an on-the-spot toilet paper exchange.
“It was initially intended to be a reminder to people to take care of those around them,” Blue said, on his Instagram stories this morning. “But then people started handing TP to me out their windows. Then others would stop and say they need some, so I’d just pass it along to them.”
