There’s all aspects of sustainability and when it comes to changing everyday products for environmental friendly why not consider something we all use which is tissues and toilet paper. I recently got my hands on the bamboo made products by cheeky panda. The range offers everything from toilet paper to boxed tissues to travel sized tissues and they’re all made from bamboo fibres. Every year around 27,000 trees are used for toilet paper alone. Bamboo is not categorised as a tree and regrows to its optimal size after it’s been chopped down in four months. Bamboo also uses less water whilst producing more oxygen making it the most sustainable plant based resource on earth.
Whilst bamboo is proven to be a sustainable alternative as a resource, I wanted to try cheeky panda as a brand to see if the products kept standards high.
The packaging is like any common toilet paper brand and comes in either tissue cardboard boxing or plastic depending on the type of product. Its clear on the packaging that this is a sustainable option and that its made of bamboo. The tissues themselves are surprisingly soft, softer than the well known brands which is a surprise considering the price is competitive. These products actually feel luxurious and premium so the fact that the price is affordable is fantastic. Whats great about this brand is that they also do office installations via their website. Really pleased to have discovered Cheeky Panda and will continue recommend both the brand and bamboo in general for paper use.
