Kitchen Rolls

Yes! In our plastic-free range we sell 10 kitchen rolls per order – perfect for eco-warriors and aspiring sustainable individuals.

On average, each of our bamboo kitchen rolls will have 100 sheets; an average roll length of 22 metres!

Manufacture and Transportation

The Cheeky Panda products are manufactured in China as that’s where bamboo grows best.

Packaging

The shipping boxes are made of recyclable cardboard, we will continue to monitor the sustainability of this.
All of the product boxes are made of recycled cardboard.

We are constantly trying to improve our packaging. By the end of this year we aim to have all our products plastic free.
– With toilet tissue specifically, we have the options of plastic free

We use plastic treated with d2w, according to the producers the specially treated plastic under test conditions found 91% biodegradation within 24 months. This is not breaking down into microplastics, but becoming bio-available food for bacteria and fungi. It can also be put in regular recycling too alongside other untreated plastics with no negative effects.
Even so, we are working towards being entirely plastic free in the next couple of years.

Some of our products are wrapped in plastic, which is either specially treated so it will biodegrade if it goes into landfill, or a commonly recyclable plastic. All are marked clearly. We are working towards all of our packaging being plastic free and you can order many of our products completely free from plastic wrapping directly through our online shop.
At this time we are looking into suitable alternatives for our wipes as any packaging needs to be able to hold moisture without disintegrating. In the meantime the packaging is one that is commonly recyclable.

The Cheeky Panda uses cardboard for most products. Our Classic range uses D2W treated plastic. This can be recycled as normal, or if they end up in landfill will break down rapidly becoming a food source for fungi and bacteria in the soil. You’ll need to check with your local council to see if they recycle the plastics in your area, unfortunately this varies across the country. We are actively working towards being as plastic-free as possible.

Panda Approved

We believe so, though we haven’t personally met any.

No, no Pandas harmed in the making of any products! The type of bamboo we use is not the same as that eaten by Pandas.

We use a different kind of bamboo to make The Cheeky Panda products to the type Pandas like to eat. No Pandas are harmed in the making of our tissue and wipes.

There are over a 1000 different species of bamboo, the bamboo we use to make our products isn’t the type that Pandas like to eat. As a brand we strive to protect the environment this includes all the animals within it.

Sustainability and the Environment

They don’t release any more carbon than they absorbed whilst growing. By degrading the carbon is released into the ground in which is it buried.

Bamboo grows in great quantities in naturally sustainable bamboo forests in China, it grows so well there’s no need for herbicides or pesticides, which means our tissue products are 100% organic. Bamboo paper manufacture is much less intensive than wood paper production, which means less energy is required to produce the same quantities. Our partnership with the World Land Trust enables us to completely offset every carbon emission we make, from farming, to production and shipping. All the details can be found here bit.ly/2YUriuO

All paper manufacture is intensive, however bamboo paper manufacture requires significantly less energy than paper that is made from wood. To offset the carbon used in the production and transportation of our bamboo tissue produce we work with the World Land Trust to fund planting forest on Vietnam which completley offsets all emissions. All the details can be found here bit.ly/2YUriuO

The bamboo is from China in from sustainably managed bamboo forests. The Pandas will not go hungry as it is a different breed, none of our loo rolls, wipes, or tissues are being made from food! We also have a 100% carbon emissions offset programme in place with the World Land Fund which covers everything from manufacture to transportation.

Our partnership with the World Land Trust means that our emissions are offset, that includes the emissions from the container ships we use.

The Cheeky Panda products are transported by water using an ocean freight from Shanghai to Felixstowe.

Yes. The bamboo we use is organic and fertiliser-free grown naturally and is 100% FSC certified.

It’s grown sustainably in China. The Cheeky Panda are the only tissue brand in the UK which uses 100% FSC certified bamboo. Manufacture and transportation carbon emissions are also 100% offset through a partnership with the World Land Trust.

Tissues

Much less than with wood products, and a lot less than recycled tissue products which require the use of strong de-inking chemicals to make. The bamboo is only treated with hydrogen peroxide during manufacture to make it whiter, nothing else, so it’s much more skin friendly for those with sensitivities.

We use a skin friendly water bleach called hydrogen peroxide to achieve that final white in our tissues.

Toilet Rolls

Many people have asked us this. We have directed a lab to run experiments to measure how long it takes for our wipes to break down completely. As soon as we have the results we will put the information here.

Our bamboo toilet paper is made of 100% bamboo so breaks down just like any other toilet tissue.

Our bamboo toilet rolls are around the same price, or cheaper than comparable bamboo brands. One of the big differences is that ours is the only 100% FSC bamboo toilet paper in the UK. There’s also a money-saving subscription and bulk buy option available through the website here http://bit.ly/2Gc4LlZ

Our toilet roll is perfect for use with composting toilets as it is made from 100% natural and sustainable bamboo

We use recycled cardboard

Our toilet paper has more sheets per roll than other brands.
How long it last depends on whether you use the same amount or use larger quantities because it’s there for the taking!

No harsh chemicals are used to make our toilet paper and tissues because it is made of 100% sustainable virgin bamboo so, unlike recycled paper, they are not needed.
We achieve the final white colour by using a skin-friendly water bleach called hydrogen peroxide.

A modern septic tank will be fine with our bamboo toilet paper.
We recommend not using our toilet roll with older septic tanks, especially those which have had any problems with traditional toilet paper blockages before.

Wipes

No, we don’t recommend it. Whilst our baby wipes and handy wipes, like all our products, are made of 100% bamboo they are thicker than tissue and take longer to biodegrade than tissue paper. Our wipes are designed to biodegrade in landfill.

Many people have asked us this. We have directed a lab to run experiments to measure how long it takes for our wipes to break down completely. As soon as we have the results we will put the information here.

Cheeky wipes are made out of 100% bamboo so will biodegrade, meaning the wipes can be decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms.

Please note that compostable items require special conditions while biodegradable things were designed to break down in landfills.

Our baby wipes and handy wipes are completely natural and made out of 100% bamboo with a 99% water 1% aloe vera juice and fruit extract.
They are plastic-free and fragrance-free.
They have also been awarded cruelty-free and vegan certificates.
And they’re biodegradable!

All wipes made by The Cheeky Panda are plastic-free, unlike many brands, 100% bamboo and are completely biodegradable. As they are thicker than regular paper, just like the wipes were used to but without plastic in, they do take longer to break down so are not recommended for flushing.
