Here are some of our frequently asked questions.

 

Why bamboo toilet paper?

Bamboo is the fastest growing material and is packed with great benefits for people and the planet. 

Bambooloo toilet paper is 100% Hypoallergenic, 100% Chemical Free (No BPAs, No Chlorine, No Nasty Chemicals), highly absorbent (25% more absorbent than Wood-Pulp) and septic safe.

Not only is it better for us, it is also better on the planet. Bamboo grows around a meter a day and reaches maturity in around 5 years while trees, while trees take 20 to 50 years to reach maturity! Bamboo can grow in soil where other plants can’t and thus highly arable land can be saved for other crops.

 

Cool, where does your bamboo come from?

Our FSC® certified bamboo right is sourced from the biggest grower of bamboo in the world and where the bamboo industry started, China. More specifically, from the Sichuan Province. 45% of the world's bamboo grows in China. We work closely with our manufacturing partners to maintain the FSC certification so we could guarantee the responsible management of those forests and the management of workers throughout the entire supply chain.

 

Wait, is this hurting the ecosystem of pandas?

No, most certainly not. The ecosystem of pandas is not affected by the production of bamboo toilet paper as the species of bamboo used is not consumed by pandas as it is too hard. 

 

How much water and carbon does it take to make Bambooloo toilet rolls?

In order to make 220 sheets of bamboo toilet paper, it takes 2.6 gallons of water and 132g of carbon. On the other hand, it takes 37 gallons of water and 440g of carbon to make the same amount of toilet paper out of wood pulp.
