ECO-FRIENDLY TOILET PAPER
TOP TIP: Remember it's more eco-friendly to buy locally instead of ordering online where possible.
ON THE HIGH STREET
The Cheeky Panda have created toilet paper made of bamboo which is much more sustainable than regular paper tissue. These come in recyclable paper packaging so it means you can avoid unrecyclable plastic packaging which most toilet roll comes in. It's available in some high street retailers such as Morrisons and London's Planet Organic. Some zero waste shops also stock it, find your nearest here.
Most of the big supermarkets now sell toilet roll made of recycled paper. Although these usually come in unrecyclable plastic packaging it's still greener than choosing toilet paper made with virgin wood.
TOP TIP: If you're shopping online and buying more than one item then it's more eco-friendly ordering all items from the same website in one order to reduce the impact of packaging and delivery.
