Ecology is intimate.
The little choices we make everyday have a big impact on our bodies and the planet.
There's nothing clean or smart
about wiping with wood.
One roll of tree paper requires 37 gallons of water and a gallon of chemicals to produce.
These chemicals, including bleach, formaldehyde, and other carcinogens, enter the body through micro-cuts, causing hemorrhoids, yeast infections, and UTIs.
The fluffier and whiter the tree-paper, the more bleach and formaldehyde it contains.
Most tree-paper contains pulp harvested from the Boreal Forest, the world’s most important carbon sink and an essential bulwark against climate change.
The chemicals used to make white, fluffy toilet paper poison our waterways and our bloodstreams.
Tree-paper damages our most precious environments.
Human skin is porous and sensitive. Toxins enter the body through micro abrasions, with uncomfortable consequences.
Recycled toilet paper is better,
but it's far from perfect.
It also contains BPA, a known endocrine disruptor that finds its way into the recycling stream through receipts. As the world uses less office paper, BPA content in recycled toilet paper will continue to climb.
There is a better way.
Plant Paper is tree-free and toxin-free,
made from fast growing FSC-certified bamboo.
