Give the Final Flush to Toilet Paper Destroying Our ForestsSeptember 20, 2021
Did you know that 15% of deforestation is due to toilet paper production alone?
“As the climate crisis worsens, the tissue industry’s continued reliance on a devastating ‘tree to toilet pipeline’ has become only more untenable,’ said Shelley Vinyard, NRDC’s Boreal Corporate Campaign Manager.”
Due to the Natural Resource Defense Council's report — it’s a thorough survey of the best and worst makers that are fueling the forest-to-flush pipeline, we are proud to share that of over 95 surveyed, Bim Bam Boo ranked as the top eco-friendly choices of all tree-free TP brands!
The ecological footprint of bamboo products is smaller than that of forest-derived paper products. There are many types of bamboo paper, but not all of them are created equal. Be warned, some of our competitors source from land that was converted from tree lands to bamboo farms — which harms climate-critical old-growth forests, biodiversity and the animal habitats.
We believe in transparent sourcing at Bim Bam Boo. The fibers that fuel our bestselling bamboo toilet paper, paper towels and facial tissue come from a privately owned bamboo grove in Southwestern China. We do not use child labor, nor rely on previously forested lands. We complete industry-trusted third-party audits and certification processes, and have earned our USDA Biopreferred tree-free certification and FSC’s sustainably sourced certification.
Bim Bam Boo the choice for forest-saving superheroes. And we are incredibly proud to have the NRDC’s sustainability rating to boot!
Together we can wipe away deforestation for good. With 27,000 trees flushed down the toilet everyday (just in America), every small step towards alternative fibers such as recycled & bamboo toilet paper helps fight climate change.
