The Forest Connection

Forests aren't just about trees—they're bustling ecosystems that keep our world alive. On International Day of Forests, let's remember how closely our choices are linked to their well-being. The UN proclaimed 21st March the International Day of Forests in 2012 to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all forests.

Consider the Amazon Rainforest, often hailed as the "lungs of the Earth." This expansive green canvas not only generates oxygen but also plays a pivotal role in climate regulation and supporting a rich variety of plant and animal species. However, rampant deforestation poses a significant threat to this delicate equilibrium, endangering our planet's health.

Did you know?

  • Forests are the crib for 80% of all known frog species.
  • Over 30% of diseases sprung up since 1960 are blamed on messing with the land, like chopping down forests.
  • Forests hoard more than half of the global carbon stash in soils and plants..
  • An area around the size of 14 million footy fields are lost to deforestation each year.
  • Forested watersheds and wetlands are the source of 75% of the world's drinkable water.

By choosing Eco Cheeks' tissue paper products, you're directly contributing to the preservation of forests, especially right here in Australia. With every purchase, you're sending a powerful message to the world that sustainability matters, and that together, we can make a difference.

Sustainable Sourcing: From Grove to Home

At Eco Cheeks, our sustainability ethos goes beyond being a trend; it's who we are. That's why we make sure our bamboo fibres come from groves that are managed responsibly. By choosing renewable sources, we're doing our part to protect forests worldwide. From the grove to your home, each sheet of Eco Cheeks tissue paper shows our commitment to keeping things green.

Our journey begins in the bamboo groves, where diligent farmers nurture these magnificent plants with care and respect for the environment. Through sustainable harvesting practices, we ensure that only mature bamboo stalks are selected, allowing younger shoots to flourish and continue the cycle of growth.

Once harvested, the bamboo undergoes a meticulous process to transform it into the soft, luxurious chemical-free tissue paper you know and love.

Unbleached Bamboo: The Forest's Finest

Whether it's the Amazon or your bathroom, every sheet of tissue paper counts in preserving our planet.  By picking eco-friendly tissue paper like Eco Cheeks offers, you're helping to protect these important habitats.  Unlike conventional tissue paper crafted from wood pulp, our unbleached bamboo offers a sustainable alternative without skimping on quality. It's naturally soft and gentle, winning the hearts of eco-conscious consumers worldwide. And guess what? Bamboo grows faster than a sprinting cheetah, making it a guilt-free choice for our planet-loving patrons!

Did you know that bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth? Some species can shoot up as much as 80 cm in just 24 hours! This rapid growth rate means that bamboo forests can be replenished much quicker than traditional trees, helping to alleviate the pressures of deforestation. So, when you choose Eco Cheeks' unbleached bamboo tissue and toilet paper, you're not only pampering yourself with its luxurious softness but also contributing to the preservation of our precious forests.
