Sustainability

Deforestation is a major contributor to climate change and tissue products are a purchase that we all make on a regular basis without giving much thought to how that purchase impacts our planet. By switching to bamboo, we can have a positive collective impact on the future of our forests, and our planet.

To reduce deforestation! Bamboo is a renewable resource that can be used to produce a high quality paper with a smaller carbon footprint. It grows 10x faster than trees, making it ultra renewable and an excellent sustainable alternative for producing paper.

Bamboo is a fast-growing grass, capable of growing 3 feet in 24 hours. It requires less chemical processing than tree-based tissue because its fibers are naturally antibacterial. Most importantly bamboo requires no fertilizer, little water, and regenerates after cutting—so the more it's harvested, the faster it grows!

Our bamboo tissue products are made using 100% bamboo virgin fiber! Our 100% bamboo toilet paper and flushable wipes are also septic safe.

  • Plastic-free

We're an American company, but there is no infrastructure or bamboo supply to have a "Made in USA" paper at this time. After searching far and wide, the highest quality bamboo tissue products we found is being produced in China.

The bamboo we use for our products is grown in the Sichuan region of Western China. This region contains the bamboo type and quantities needed to effectively develop pulp for paper making.

Our manufacturers also have ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications.

We whiten our 100% bamboo toilet paper rolls using elemental chlorine-free (ECF) technology, a process in which no elemental chlorine is used in the bleaching sequences. Domestically, ECF bleaching is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as being the “Best Available Technology” to bleach paper products.

Our manufacturers have obtained FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) chain of custody certification, which was vital for us when choosing a manufacturing partner. FSC chain of custody certification verifies that FSC-certified material has been identified and separated from ineligible and unacceptable material as it makes its way along the supply chain from the forest to the market.

The FSC also has a strong focus on securing workers' rights by incorporating core labor requirements into their system. These requirements include fundamental elements on the effective abolition of child labor, elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labor, the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation, respect of freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.

Yes, our toilet paper and flushable wipes are septic safe and passed all septic safety tests. please follow instructions for flushable wipes on back of packaging.
