Virgin Bamboo pulp is a naturally nutritious, flexible and softer commodity than tree bark. Wood is abrasive and to make it into the toilet paper you get in the supermarkets it requires chemical chlorine and de-inking agents to transform it. Not nice!! Bamboo on the other hand does not require any harsh chemical in the manufacturing process meaning that you get natural luxury and softness without harming the environment.
