Tissue On A Roll makes it easy to save money and make a positive impact on the Earth. And by using eco-friendly toilet paper with Tissue On A Roll, you can supercharge your Earth-saving efforts.
There’s three main groups of eco-friendly toilet paper: treeless, recycled, and FSC Certified toilet paper made from 100% new material. We’ve already discussed our favorite treeless toilet paper brands to use with Tissue On A Roll. Now, we’d like to talk about recycled toilet paper brands.
Pros / Cons of Recycled Toilet Paper
When we look at the benefits of using recycled toilet paper – or any recycled paper in general – saving new trees from being cut down is one of the top reasons to make the switch. The manufacturing process also uses less energy and creates less waste as compared to paper made from 100% new material. The only drawback is the trace amounts of BPA that can be passed down from the original paper source – particularly thermal printing paper like receipts. However, as far as BPA is concerned, it’s much more dangerous to handle receipts than it is to handle recycled toilet paper.1
To us at TP-TOO, saving trees alone is reason enough to switch to recycled toilet paper. Here are some of our favorite brands:
