Sugarcane vs Bamboo Toilet Paper

Which is the Best Eco Friendly Toilet Paper: Sugarcane or Bamboo Toilet Paper?

Trying to be more green in the choices we make is now a normal part of everyday life. From the food we eat and the transport we take to the clothes we buy and the household products we use, people are seeking eco-friendly alternatives to reduce their carbon footprint. But did you know that one of the simplest ways to start on your sustainable journey is in the bathroom? Choosing to use eco friendly toilet paper can have a huge impact on the environment, so in this blog we’ll look at the eco-credentials of sugarcane vs bamboo toilet paper. It’s time to flush out the facts…

Benefits of Sugarcane Toilet Paper

Sugarcane toilet paper is an innovative option that has many benefits for both the biosphere and your bottom! It is made using the waste product from the sugarcane industry, which previously was disposed of by being burnt in a toxic cloud of ‘black snow’. Instead, the waste product, or bagasse, is used in much the same way as the raw material used in traditional toilet paper to create a remarkably environmentally friendly toilet paper.

Fast fact: Sugarcane toilet paper biodegrades in just 4 seconds!

Much like bamboo, sugar cane has a rapid growth cycle and so is an altogether more sustainable resource than creating toilet paper from hardwood trees. The production process also requires less water and fewer chemicals, further reducing the environmental impact of sugarcane paper. This produces a naturally strong and super soft eco friendly toilet paper that biodegrades in seconds and never causes blockages in the water system.

The bottom line: sugarcane toilet rolls are an extremely sustainable and biodegradable option for anyone wanting to make a positive difference to their environmental impact.

Benefits of Bamboo Toilet Paper

The benefits of bamboo as a sustainable material are widely recognised and there are now a number of bamboo toilet rolls on the market. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world – it is actually a grass – and regenerates through its root system, meaning that even if you chop it down, it can still regrow without the need for replanting. In fact, bamboo takes just a year to reach maturity, whereas hardwood trees, from which traditional toilet paper is made, can take more than 10 years.

Fast fact: bamboo toilet paper is naturally antifungal and antibacterial!

Swapping to bamboo toilet paper is a sustainable choice for many reasons. Firstly, it helps to reduce deforestation, which is a number one contributor to global warming. Deforestation also causes harm to the animal and plant worlds as habitats are destroyed in the process, so much so that a number of wildlife species are now classed as vulnerable and even face extinction.

Bamboo can also thrive without the need for extensive irrigation or the use of pesticides or fertilisers, the overuse of which can be harmful to the environment. Its fibrous structure produces a loo roll that is soft and strong and that is naturally antibacterial, antifungal and hypoallergenic.

The bottom line: bamboo toilet paper is an incredibly eco-friendly option and being naturally antibacterial and antifungal is an added bonus in the bathroom!
