How is toilet paper made?

Even small choices, like the type of toilet paper you use, can have a significant impact on our planet. At Pure Planet Club, we believe understanding the environmental impact of everyday products is crucial. Let’s take a look at how toilet paper is made, and how each different type of toilet paper – recycled, bamboo, and traditional toilet paper - affects our environment, for better or worse.

Recycled toilet paper: giving paper a second life

Contrary to popular belief, recycled toilet paper is not made from used toilet paper! It begins its journey as post-consumer paper waste – newspapers, cardboard and office paper. This reclaimed paper is then processed through a meticulous de-inking and sanitization process, so chemicals can be removed before they find their way into the final product.

By opting for recycled toilet paper, we close the loop on paper waste, reducing the demand for virgin wood pulp. This sustainable choice not only conserves forests and wildlife habitats for many species, but also minimizes energy consumption during production. At Pure Planet Club, our commitment to recycled toilet paper aligns seamlessly with the eco-friendly lifestyle, offering you a guilt-free, cost-effective alternative without compromising on quality.

Bamboo toilet paper: the luxe, eco-friendly option

Bamboo, the fastest-growing plant on Earth, takes center stage in the production of our bamboo toilet paper. Known for its sustainability, bamboo requires minimal water and no pesticides to grow and thrive, making it an ideal choice for environmentally conscious consumers.

The process of crafting bamboo toilet paper involves harvesting mature bamboo stalks, which are then pulped and processed to create a soft and durable paper product. Unlike traditional hardwood forests, bamboo can be harvested without uprooting the entire plant, allowing for rapid regrowth.

By choosing bamboo toilet paper, you contribute to the preservation of natural ecosystems while enjoying a luxurious and eco-friendly bathroom experience.

Traditional toilet paper: best left in the past?

Traditional toilet paper, often made from virgin wood pulp, has been a staple in households for decades. However, its production comes with a significant environmental cost. The process begins with logging large tracts of forests, leading to habitat destruction and loss of biodiversity.

The extracted wood undergoes a series of chemical processes to break down the fibers, resulting in the final product. Unfortunately, this method contributes to deforestation, water pollution and increased carbon emissions.

At Pure Planet Club, we advocate for more sustainable choices, steering away from traditional toilet paper in favor of options that prioritize the health of our planet.
