The benefits of bamboo toilet paper

That bamboo toilet paper is sustainable is hopefully already obvious. So about your positive contribution to a the environment you can rest easy. But what exactly are the benefits of sustainable toilet paper made from bamboo? Because by choosing sustainable toilet paper, you can experience personal benefits in addition to feeling green with every toilet visit. It is a true win-win situation! Below we have listed some notable benefits of using bamboo toilet paper.

Bamboo better than trees for toilet paper

That cutting down trees for a product you flush down the toilet every day is not good for the world, I don’t have to tell you. Yet we all do this together, every day, worldwide. And a lot of trees are cut down for that. The ecological impact of toilet rolls is enormous. Bamboo toilet paper, on the other hand, is not only soft toilet paper but also gentle on the environment.

Bamboo, on the other hand, is much better for making toilet rolls because of its renewable qualities. In fact, bamboo grows incredibly fast. Even so fast that bamboo holds the world record for fastest growing plant on earth.

A bamboo stem (of 30 meters) can reach maturity within 1 year. A pine tree takes 30 and an oak tree even 80 years to do this. So by using bamboo for toilet rolls, you reduce the amount of trees being cut down for a product that will be flushed down the toilet in no time.

The benefits of bamboo toilet paper

The popularity of bamboo is rising and even forests are being cut down for bamboo fields. Therefore, it is important to look at where the bamboo comes from and preferably have an FSC label for responsible forests on the products. In fact, this label ensures that the raw materials from which the toilet paper is made come from well-managed forests. By buying products with this label, you contribute to the protection of the world’s forests.

Ecological impact of bamboo toilet paper

Another advantage of sustainable toilet paper made from bamboo is that the plant is a type of grass and not a tree. This is because bamboo does not need to be replanted when it is harvested: it is a self-fertilizing plant. This saves a lot of water that would be needed to grow young seeds.

But what is even more impressive is that bamboo can grow without fertilizer or pesticide. This is due to the powerful natural anti-fungal agent Kun / Kunh. Bamboi® toilet paper is therefore completely free of added chemicals. Bamboi® is made from organic bamboo and is therefore biodegradable. So it is not harmful to the environment after use because no chemicals get into water or soil.

What bamboo also scores high on is carbon storage. In fact, bamboo stores 35% more carbon and releases 35% more oxygen than the average tree. Thereby, bamboo also has a storage limit. This means that bamboo must be cut down to allow carbon to be converted back into oxygen. The felled bamboo, full of stored CO2, that’s what we make toilet paper from.

Bamboo also better for humans

Besides being good for the world, bamboo toilet paper also has personal benefits for the user. Thanks to the organic qualities of bamboo, our toilet paper is free of added chemicals and hypoallergenic. The paper is soft and suitable for sensitive skin. People who are bothered by chemicals in products will have a good experience with Bambooi®.

Because the paper is biodegradable, it can be safely flushed down almost any toilet. But even on compost, the paper decays with nature. So a suitable application for every person!
