Why Bamboo? Animation Series Launch!

The Cheeky Panda   |   6 Jun, 2020


In our first eipsode we explore why bamboo is the most sustainable plant in the world and why we use it for our eco-friendly products.


Did you know that bamboo grows 30 times faster than trees? By utilising bamboo, our carbon emissions are some 65% lower than if we used tree pulp! This plant is truly the most sustainable in the world.


The forest that our bamboo comes from is audited by the FSC. The Forest Stewardship Council is a non-profit organisation. Their mission is to promote environmentally appropriate economically viable and socially beneficial forest management across the world. As an eco-friendly business, we have a responsibility to make sure that we promote sustainability in all aspects of The Cheeky Panda.


A common question that we get asked is about what about the bamboo that pandas eat? Are we taking away their food and habitat? This a great question and one that we can answer with a big no! The region that our bamboo grows in south-east China is not where pandas live, and is not the same species as the one that pandas eat.


We hope that you love our new animation as much as we do! The next episode is all about our biodegradable wipes range, so keep a lookout for episode 2 next month - Subscribe to our Youtube channel here.
