A Guide To Choosing Eco-Friendly Toilet Paper
The Cheeky Panda | 6 Jun, 2020
Switching to an eco-friendly toilet paper is such a great start when thinking about sustainable living. Living an environmentally conscious lifestyle is so important when it comes to making a positive contribution to the planet. We only have one so should be doing what we can to protect it!
Use sustainable materials
Did you know that bamboo is the most sustainable plant in the world? This is because it is fast-growing (30 times faster than trees!). It is important for us to be utilising bamboo as we want to be able to help others reduce their environmental footprint. As well as this, we want to make sure we are leading the way in sustainable everyday products.
No harsh chemicals
We believe that products do not need to be crammed full of chemicals to be effective. This is why we use only naturally derived ingredients that are not only kind to the environment but kind to your skin too. Our products do not contain any harsh chemicals, de-inking agents, fragrances or BPA. Due to the naturally derived ingredients, our products have helped those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Being a B Corp means that we are part of a group of businesses that balance profit with people and the planet. We are so proud of this certification because it means that we are aligning The Cheeky Panda with our goal to create eco-friendly products.
In 2017, we became carbon-balanced with The World Land Trust. This means that we offset excess carbon that is made during the production process. By doing this we are supporting vital conservation efforts and protecting rainforests.
Vegan and Cruelty-Free
We are the first vegan-certified tissue brand in the UK. It is not a widely known fact, but a lot of toilet paper companies use animal products to bind together the pulp for the tissue. This is not a practice we agree with, therefore we make sure that no animals (including pandas!) are harmed in the making of our products. We are vegan certified through The Vegan Society and Cruelty-Free International.
