Why Bamboo?

Why Bamboo Toilet Paper?

As environmental protection and sustainability grow in their importance, the demand and desire for innovative, eco-friendly material and products heightens. And among the many eco-friendly materials, bamboo certainly has an important spot. But how is bamboo toilet paper eco-friendly and why should we use it?

Here’s why Bamboo is considered eco-friendly:

Bamboo is fast growing

Bamboo is recorded in the Guinness book of records as the fastest growing plant in the world. It is also proven to have a maturation age of 7 years after which it can be cultivated above ground level. Unlike trees that might not grow after being cut down, bamboos will grow back in a few years.

Bamboo requires less water to grow

Due to the growth period of bamboo, it requires about 30% less water to survive than trees. This reduction in the usage of water is an important active choice by you and me as consumers to help our dear planet conserve valuable energy.

Bamboo can grow nearly anywhere

Versatility and adaptability are some of the strengths of bamboo and one of the reasons why it is ideal for papermaking. Known as one of the most tolerant plants in the world, bamboo can grow – and effectively at that – in five of the eight climates of the world. This means that most societies that need bamboo for papermaking can effectively grow their own and not bother about importation.

Bamboo has natural antibacterial agent

Bamboo in its natural state has antibacterial agent which makes it a very robust plant. Because of this, bamboo needs less monitoring and chemical treatments during its cultivation

Bamboo helps CO2 reduction

Bamboo emits 35% more O2 and absorbs double the CO2 absorption rate of trees. This point was all the more impressive as scientists in Japan and some other parts of the world have evidences that a hectare of the bamboo forest takes up 12 tons of CO2 every year. Bamboo can be a major contributor to CO2 sequestration and mitigation of climate changes.

Bamboo prevents desertification

Bamboo has a well-developed root system that effectively retains water and reduces the risk of flood and land desertification.

Bamboo toilet paper is 100% Biodegradable

Like all other paper products, bamboo toilet paper consists of plant fiber and is thus completely biodegradable. And unlike other paper products, bamboo fiber is naturally strong and requires minimal chemical usage in the toilet paper making process. Therefore, the biodegraded product leaves minimal chemical that may impact soil quality.

Preservation of animal habitats

Animals like panda suffer from deforestation as their habitats and foods are destroyed lowering their survival chances. However, the majority of the species of bamboo used for the production of bamboo toilet paper aren’t consumed or inhabited by any wildlife. Hence, you can rest assured you’re not enjoying at the expense of some of the animals you so love.

 

What about Bamboo Toilet Paper? 

Is bamboo toilet paper really up to par with what’s on market? Well of course! And here’s why:

Bamboo fiber absorbs water very well and dissolves quickly

The inherent properties of the bamboo fiber make the bamboo toilet paper to be naturally stronger and softer than regular toilet paper. Bamboo fiber is even said to be as strong as soft steel provided it is left in its natural state.

Bamboo toilet paper is strong soft and comfortable

In terms of softness and tenderness of touch, you might not be able to differentiate bamboo toilet roll paper from regular toilet roll. Hence, it offers the tenderness craved in the traditional paper with more strength and toughness. 

Our bamboo toilet paper is free of chemicals and fragrances

Bamboo toilet paper is naturally soft and tender. But bamboo fiber is tough and strong in its natural state and as such doesn’t need any chemical to enhance these features. 

 

With all these advantages over traditional tree-based paper and all the desirable characteristics for toilet paper, what other options can be better than bamboo toilet paper?
