Every day around 27,000 trees are cut down globally for toilet roll, and 22,000 tons of plastic enter our oceans.
This has a devastating impact on our planet, and cannot continue if we want our planet’s biodiversity to thrive.
Honest Supplies launched a little over 6 months ago now, with a simple vision to provide eco-friendly products to people who love our planet.
It all started when we moved to a small village and started to shop in our local refill shop, making small but easy changes to reduce the amount we throw away. One thing we noticed was the amount of bamboo products like loo roll, and thought about the thousands of miles they have to travel before getting to the UK, and the working conditions of where they are made. We hope that our UK made products will provide a fantastic alternative.
We’re proud to say that our toilet paper is the only UK recycled roll that is 200% carbon negative. As it’s recycled we only reuse what’s already in circulation rather than cutting anything down, whether trees or bamboo. This helps to protect the habitats of wildlife and biodiversity. We only work with carbon reduction projects that have the gold standard certifications. This ensures that the carbon savings we report are accurate and the projects are seen to completion, creating local jobs, and therefore supporting those communities.
By choosing recycled pulp, we’re saving 30,000 litres of water, 4,000kWh of electricity, and 95% of air pollutants per tonne of pulp. These all contribute to huge savings of carbon dioxide from being released.
We think there is absolutely no need for toilet paper to be bleached white, it doesn’t matter what it looks like. So why add harmful chemicals when it’s not needed. This makes our rolls softer and kinder to your skin by being totally chlorine free.
As a new eco business, we are excited to continue to grow, reach customers across the UK, and expand our range to ensure plastic free, sustainable products are available to everyone.
We offer both double & quilted toilet rolls that are almost twice the length of normal supermarket rolls, meaning you get excellent value, and we’re cheaper than leading bamboo brands.
