PlantPaper is reinventing the wasteful and problematic toilet paper industry. They’ve reimagined what toilet paper should look like, relying on the power of the fast growing bamboo plant, utilizing no chemicals and offering up an entirely reinvented aesthetic, this has fast become a staple in our bathrooms.

27,000 trees per day get flushed down the world’s toilets. This results in an irreversible loss of animal habitat, destruction of the world’s most important carbon sinks, and soil erosion. Plant Paper is derived exclusively from fast-growing, renewable sources of plant pulp. PlantPaper is Tree-Free, Toxin-Free Toilet Paper Made from soft, fast-growing, FSC-certified bamboo. Never from trees. Stronger, more absorbent, and made entirely without the use of bleaching agents and other harmful chemicals.
PlantPaper is our response to an industry and an hygienic practice
in dire need of an update. In the early 20th century, after centuries of wiping with stones, sponges, shirttails and corn cobs, we started using paper made of virgin tree pulp, chlorine, formaldehyde and a host of other toxic chemicals—a scorched earth approach to cleanliness—and haven’t stopped since.
The hidden costs of this practice are appalling: 27,000 trees per day flushed down the world’s toilets, including thousands of acres of boreal forest per minute; 37 gallons of water per roll; and over a gallon of bleach, formaldehyde and other chemicals per roll. And we now know that the very chemicals that make our toilet paper so white and fluffy also make it the cause of UTIs, fissures, vulvar irritation, and hemorrhoids.
Times have changed, and so have our ideas about what it means to be clean.
The supply chain behind most toilet paper sold in the U.S. is controlled by a small handful of big corporations. With little competition to incentivize them to innovate, they continue to do what they have always done best: cutting down trees, contaminating our waterways and bloodstreams, and getting rich doing it.
All the while, they hide behind the excuse that if their products are harsh on the environment and on our bodies, it’s because that’s what the public wants. It’s certainly not what we wanted.
And if up until this point, that’s what we’ve been buying, it’s mostly because we haven’t known enough to demand an alternative—or couldn’t find a good one if we did. Toilet paper companies have always spoken in euphemisms about what their product is meant for, and have used cuddly bears and babies to distract us from the real business at hand. We didn’t want to be talked down to, and we didn’t want to beat around the bush. We wanted a toilet paper for 21st century humans. A toilet paper for every body. After three years of research and development, we arrived at a product we’re proud of. Made entirely without trees, zero chlorine or formaldehyde, and requiring only a fraction of the water needed to produce tree paper.
Silky, soft and strong, featuring two sides—one for dabbing, one for grabbing—to keep us clean and leave no trace.
We think now is the time to make the change.
