Sustainably produced quality two ply toilet paper with our least packaging ever!
What is Greencane Paper?
All Greencane products are made from an 80% mix of recycled sugarcane and bamboo fibre (bagasse), a by-product of the sugar refining process. We use timber in conjunction with this mix to ensure good strength, with our aim to minimise this fibre so avoiding the unnecessary cutting down of 25-year-old trees to make low value products like toilet paper.
How sustainable is Greencane raw material?
Both sugarcane and bamboo are fast growing tropical crops that are farm harvested on an annual basis. In ideal growing regions no fertilisers are required and both these plants have strong pest resilience. During the harvesting only the growth part of the plant is removed meaning no replanting is required. This harvesting and replanting process has a low environmental impact particularly in comparison to forestry where harvesting results in erosion, extensive land scaring and soil deprivation plus the traffic road wear with heavy logging trucks.
