Where is the 100% bamboo toilet paper made?

Our 100% bamboo toilet paper is made in and sourced from renewable and protected, naturally grown bamboo forests in Southwestern China, and these forests are strictly for manufacturing and don't impede or destroy any animal habitats. 

Our manufacturers have a 100% alkali self-sufficiency rate (the alkali is completely recycled from other processes to dissolve the lignin during the bamboo chip cooking process), an 85% water reuse rate (the rest is put in a disposal system that needs to pass national and industry standards), a 60% recycling rate of waste residue (the rest is sent to a 3rd party for auditing), and the energy consumption per unit produced is less than 1/2 of the national standard.

How is toilet paper made exactly? Once the bamboo is ready to be made into toilet paper, the bamboo is cut up into smaller chips. The chips are then boiled so they are softer and whitening using elemental chlorine-free whitening. The softer chips are then dried out and pressed into solid plates of bamboo. These plates are then combined into massive rolls, which are then cut down to the normal roll size.

FSC Certification

Our manufacturers have obtained FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) chain of custody certification, which was vital for us when choosing a manufacturing partner. FSC chain of custody certification verifies that FSC-certified material has been identified and separated from ineligible and unacceptable material as it makes its way along the supply chain from the forest to the market.

The FSC also has a strong focus on securing workers' rights by incorporating core labor requirements into their system. These requirements include fundamental elements on the effective abolition of child labor, elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labor, the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation, respect of freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
