Did you know that Bamboo can be transformed into luxury tissue paper? While many of you may be familiar with Bamboo Socks, Pillows, Bedsheet and Underwear there is a new kid in town called The Cheeky Panda! It all stems from bamboo, the world’s fastest growing plant paving the way towards a more sustainable future. This key ingredient eradicates deforestation and promotes good health, tree based products rely on slow growth using fertilisers and recycled tissue paper alternatives come choked full of harmful chemicals.
When you cut down a tree you are left with the root system that needs to be dug up before replanting. All that soil erosion and chemicals have a negative impact, while bamboo behaves like a grass when cut from the root it just grows back. No soil erosion, no fertilisers just natural organic bamboo. What you might not know is that bamboo is anti-microbial, that means it doesn’t collect bacteria and its healthier for people’s skin than traditional tree based tissue. Making smart choices about food and healthy living is the way to protect the planet and give the future generations a sustainable world.
Recycled tissue was the most environmentally friendly tissue on the market but what they don’t tell you is that in order to turn old newspapers and copier paper into toilet paper they have to use lots of de-inking agents and harsh chemicals which are harmful to both the environment and the skin. Tissue paper products might be at the bottom of the market (excuse the pun), but that doesn’t mean it should be ignored, it is every bit as important as food after all what goes in must come out.
The Cheeky Panda fairly new to the market but the founders Chris and Julie are extremely passionate about protecting the environment and leaving no carbon footprint. Every time someone buys some Cheeky Panda some of the money goes to protecting the Rainforest in Vietnam, through the World Land Trust they back a project to regenerate lost rainforest and stop animal snaring, how cool is that?
The Cheeky Panda range is 100% FSC certified with recycled packaging that biodegrades when exposed to oxygen. Check out the online reviews and grab yourself a pack, remember its more than just bums on seats, it’s about doing the right thing, using a comfortable organic tissue and making the planet a little more sustainable.
