Ecoleaf loo roll isn't glamorous. It isn't the sort of toilet paper that you take photos of to put on Instagram. But we think it's a sensible plastic free choice.
Simply put, Ecoleaf toilet tissue is made in the UK from 100% recycled paper. Almost two thirds of this is consumer waste... the stuff we chuck in our green bins.
And it's not shipped around the world, increasing your carbon footprint in the process.
The wrapping around these toilet rolls is compostable in industrial composting conditions. No plastic here, nope. And no unnecessary printed paper wrap on the rolls either.
Toilet paper made from bamboo is nice and everything, but environmentally speaking, it's better to use recycled paper that's sourced close to home. When you consider how many container ships are required to move toilet paper around the world, it quickly becomes clear what an environmental folly this is.
BTW - sea freight is one of the biggest risks to our environment. The 15 largest container ships produce more carbon dioxide than all of the cars in the world combined. Why contribute to that by buying loo roll from overseas?
So go plastic free and zero waste with Ecoleaf, an affordable swap, made in the UK by a worker's co-op.
