No more toilet paper?

Well, not really! Our family has switched to sustainable bamboo ‘paper’ products like toilet paper, paper towels and wipes. Bamboo paper is vastly more sustainable than wood paper. For instance, one roll of bamboo tp contains no wood and takes less than 1 gallon of water per roll to produce. Bamboo regrows in 1-2 years. Regular toilet paper contains 1.5 lbs of wood per roll and takes 37 gallons of water per roll to produce. Trees take 30 years to grow.

Our family uses Caboo products but some others are Grove Co., Betterway, Reel and Cloud Paper.

Also, we installed a bidet which helps use even less paper.
