When it comes to tissues and kitchen roll, the greenest way to go is to switch to handkerchiefs or reusable kitchen towel to drastically cut down on waste. This may not be suitable to everyone so we've put this page together with some greener single-use options.
ON THE HIGH STREET
The Cheeky Panda have created tissues and kitchen roll made of bamboo which is much more sustainable than regular paper. These come in recyclable paper packaging so it means you can avoid the unrecyclable plastic packaging which most tissues and kitchen roll come in. They're both available in some high street retailers such as London's Planet Organic and Whole Foods. Boots stores also stock just their tissues. Some zero waste shops stock them also, find your nearest here.
Most big supermarkets now sell tissues and kitchen roll made of recycled paper. Although these usually come in unrecyclable plastic packaging it's still greener than choosing regular toilet paper made with virgin wood.
