FAQ - Impact
Is traditional toilet paper really bad for the environment?
Yes, traditional toilet paper production is undeniably detrimental to the environment. Each day, the production of conventional toilet paper results in the felling of over 1 million trees. This staggering number is based on the assumption that slightly more than half of the world's population uses such toilet paper, though the actual figures may be even higher. The destruction of trees, forests, and ecosystems solely for the purpose of producing toilet paper raises significant environmental concerns.
That's why we are wholeheartedly committed to using sustainable materials like recycled paper or bamboo in our toilet paper production. The key message here is that choosing eco-friendly toilet paper, whether it's ours or another brand's, can have a substantial positive impact on the environment. By making this simple switch, we can collectively contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.
