Regular toilet and tissue paper uses wood fibre from plantation or native forests. Native forests absorb carbon dioxide, act as water catchments and are home to animals and much biodiversity. By using paper made from paper pulp with recycled content, you reduce demand for native forest logging. Post-consumer-waste paper is even more preferable as it is has been used once and then collected for recycling.
- Choose toilet paper with recycled content. Brands include SAFE, Naturale, Who Gives a Crap, icare, Earthwise & Softex. Choose those with paper wrapping where possible.
- Avoid paper products that have been bleached with chlorine (toxic). Look for unbleached as first preference, or oxygen-bleached, total chlorine-free, or elemental chlorine free, as a second preference.
