Squares to Spare may make toilet paper, but we really love the environment and doing whatever we can to help it. Which is why we have made sure our products are 100% sustainable from the toilet paper to the packaging. It’s all good for the earth.
Bamboo products are popping up everywhere and for a good reason. From clothing, sheets, undies – and toilet paper of course – we’re becoming more aware of the range of high-quality products this magical grass can produce.
So what’s so magical about bamboo? It grows fast, faster than any standard forest tree. In fact, it can average 1.2m growth in a day, and within six months it’s ready to be harvested again. Yes, you read that right, harvested again. Now compare this to trees which take 30-40 years to mature enough to be harvested and once you cut them down they don’t grow back.
We don’t like to put our bamboo through too many processes or add any special chemicals, which is why it’s beige in colour. But the colour shouldn’t put you off because it’s just as strong, soft and silky on your bum.
We may not all admit it, but we’re often quite picky about what we wipe out bum with. Don’t worry, this stuff is no compromise! It’s got the five S’s crucial to toilet paper going on…soft, silky, strong and sustainably sourced.
Have you ever noticed that all toilet paper is really white? For something we throw down the loo after wiping our bums we really like it to be a nice bright white colour. Well not any more.
At Squares to Spare we don’t believe thousands of trees should be cut down just for the paper we throw in the loo or in the bin. We also don’t believe that the alternatives like bamboo toilet paper should still go through the bleaching and dying of regular toilet paper just for aesthetics. And then when you add the chemical processes the chips go through to become toilet paper, and the environment takes another hit.
We believe you shouldn’t wipe white! Whether it be your toilet paper, tissues or paper towel, there’s no reason for bleach, dyes and other chemicals to be added to these products just to make them look pretty. Find out more about why we don’t wipe white by clicking below.
If the eco-creds of bamboo still hasn’t convinced you to make the switch or you just aren’t ready to give up that white TP look, we have another option. Our 100% recycled toilet paper is made from recycled materials but doesn’t skimp on quality or whiteness.
We don’t understand the need to cut down 40-50-year-old trees just to make something that gets flushed down the toilet. Imagine what those trees could be doing for the environment and the array of wildlife that calls them home if we left them standing and opted for recycled TP instead.
Our 100% recycled toilet paper moves us closer to a circular economy. The toilet paper rolls, the paper wrap, and boxes can all be recycled and pulped to make the white, soft, silky, strong, and sustainable 100% recycled toilet paper.
You didn’t think we’d stop our sustainability at just the products, did you? Of course not! We don’t use any plastic in the packaging, which helps build a circular economy. Everything we use to package the toilet paper is recyclable, which means it can, in theory, have a second life as our 100% recycled toilet paper.
Now we know that even though it’s only loo paper, you still want to make sure it gets to your house in a clean and hygienic state. Each roll is individually wrapped in a beautifully designed paper wrap so you can be sure that all your rolls will make it to you clean. The wrapping paper can then be recycled when you’re done with it.
