Naked Sprout bamboo toilet roll is the most eco-friendly toilet roll on the market. Free from plastic, bleach and harsh chemicals.
Sarah and I have been testing it – alongside other eco brands – for some time now. We think that, if you can get past the colour, then a subscription to Naked Sprout is your pathway to a more sustainable lifestyle.
As you probably know, Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world – growing up to 3 feet in 24 hours!
- Bamboo requires no pesticides or fertilisers and only needs rainwater to grow.
- Bamboo absorbs 5 times more carbon dioxide than trees and produces 35% more oxygen than trees.
- It is naturally the fastest growing plant in the world and rapidly renewable.
- Growing up to 3 feet in 24 hours and reaching maturity within 4-6 years – trees take 30-60 years.
- This makes for some serious tissue strength, quality and sustainability.
Is bamboo more environmentally friendly than paper?
Naked Sprout bamboo toilet roll helps to avoid deforestation and avoids harsh chemicals entering our waterways. Naked Sprout bamboo toilet roll is the most eco-friendly toilet paper on the market. Free from plastic, bleach and harsh chemicals.
Although both forms are more eco-friendly than your Regular Toilet Roll, Bamboo Toilet Roll wins overall for a number of reasons:
- Avoids deforestation
- Less chemicals
- Less energy
- Less water
Naked Sprout unbleached tissues are differentiated from others (e.g. Andres, even “who gives a crap”) by their production process. Because they only use virgin bamboo fibres they are able to process pulp without harsh chemicals. The bamboo is harvested, chipped, boiled to soften it and then pressed. Often at the boiling stage chemicals are added to whiten the paper – however Naked Sprout have chosen not to do this – which is why their paper is a natural colour.
