Is Bamboo Toilet Paper Better Than Trees? | Pure Planet Club

Bamboo toilet paper has been gaining popularity due to several potential environmental benefits. Here are some reasons why bamboo toilet paper is considered better than traditional tree-based toilet paper.

This is one amazing plant and we love it!!  When we were looking for a material that was more sustainable than knocking down our forest, bamboo was hands down, the easy answer!

1. It is the fastest growing plant in the world – technically it’s a grass! Some species can grow 1.2m in a day. Bamboo regenerates and can be harvested year on year for up to 70 years.  Trees on the other hand take 30-40 years to mature just once, then need to be replanted after being harvested.

2. Soft & strong! Don’t let the colour fool you – this aint no finger poking sandpaper toilet paper! Bamboo fibers are long and strong, making it softer than many from recycled paper or wood fiber. ☁️💪🏻

3. Bamboo is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It’s a Super-plant!  We think it needs a cape! 🦸🏻‍♀️

4. It can be grown without pesticides or herbicides, as bamboo doesn’t have any natural pests.  Essentially meaning bamboo is organic! 🚫🌱

5. Bamboo doesn’t require any fertilizer.

6. Bamboo produces 30-35% more oxygen than trees. 🌳

7. It uses 30% less water than hardwood trees. 💦

8. Unlike wood pulp, its dust free! 

9. Helps to reduce deforestation (15% of deforestation is due to toilet paper production).
