One of the key advantages of using bamboo in everyday products is that it is an extremely sustainable material. It is actually a fast-growing grass (not a tree) and can reach full maturity in just one year, compared to hardwood trees which can take over 10 years. As it regenerates through its root system, even when you cut it back, new shoots will still appear without the need for replanting.
Because it is fast-growing, bamboo requires less water than trees to develop and it doesn’t need any fertilisers or pesticides to help it on its way. That means it is 98.9% more energy efficient than standard trees, and in terms of carbon capture, is 75.8% better for the environment.
Bamboo is an exceptionally renewable resource, so choosing to swap to sustainable office supplies allows businesses to meet their everyday needs without contributing to deforestation or compromising the health of ecosystems.

Going green doesn’t have to be difficult. Taking even the smallest step will signal your intent to move towards a company culture that puts the environment first. Here are some ideas about how to introduce sustainability to your everyday business practices:
One of the simplest and most efficient ways to incorporate green office solutions into the workplace is to begin in the bathroom. Swapping traditional loo roll for an eco-friendly alternative, such as sugarcane toilet roll or bamboo toilet roll is a quick and easy way to introduce sustainable business practices into your company culture. These sustainable toilet rolls are naturally soft and strong, and bamboo has the added advantage of being naturally antibacterial, antifungal and hypoallergenic.
Introducing cleaning products that are kind to the environment sends a direct message about a company’s stance on environmental issues. Choose those made from natural ingredients with no harsh chemicals that can pollute water systems. If possible, go plastic-free as well by using Tiboo’s sustainable eco cleaning products: dissolvable cleaning tablets that come with a reusable aluminium spray bottle.
Banish traditional paper towels to the waste bin forever by choosing a Tiboo-branded paper towel dispenser. These stylish dispensers work with Tiboo’s 100% bamboo paper towels and have been designed to dispense just one paper towel at a time, meaning no more costly paper towel waste.
In the age of e-commerce, packaging has become a major advertisement of a company’s eco-credentials. Traditional packaging materials, such as plastic and Styrofoam, contribute significantly to pollution and waste, whereas bamboo-based packaging offers a sustainable solution, being biodegradable and compostable. The use of bamboo and other sustainable materials in everything from packaging to promotional tools enhances the overall image of a business as a socially responsible and forward-thinking entity.
To make it even easier for companies to choose sustainable business practices, Tiboo offers a subscription service on sustainable toilet rolls and cleaning cloths. When you opt for the sugarcane toilet roll or the bamboo toilet roll, or the 100% bamboo cleaning cloths, by taking out a subscription you receive 10% off the usual price, plus free delivery. That means going green is a convenient as well as cost-effective way for companies to do business.
