Clean up the planet with sustainable toilet paper
Switching to ethical toilet roll, such as bamboo toilet paper or recylced toilet roll, is a simple way to help the planet. Bamboo grows five times faster than trees, so it is a more efficient and sustainable way to produce ethical toilet paper.
Bamboo toilet paper also uses 65% less carbon than tree-based paper, so it’s much better for the climate. Here are five recycled and bamboo toilet rolls made by climate-conscious brands who use plastic-free packaging.
The Cheeky Panda
Made from sustainable bamboo, The Cheeky Panda Eco Friendly Toilet Paper is three-ply, strong and very soft. It’s available in packs of four and nine and you can also buy up to 48 rolls in bulk. It’s possible to save money by signing up to a subscription of the bulk bamboo toilet roll.
There are 200 sheets in every roll and the packaging is completely plastic free. The company uses surplus virgin pulp bamboo from sustainably sourced forests and is B Corp Certified, which means they achieve high environmental standards.
