There aren’t many eco friendly plastic free toilet paper products available. So I was pleased to discover a brand of toilet paper, that is plastic free and affordable. It is managed by Nova Tissue, which is based in the UK. You can buy it on amazon here: Cushion Soft, Soft on Nature toilet paper *

What eco-friendly features does the plastic free toilet paper have?

  • The packaging is made out of potato starch and is home compostable.
  • The paper is made from responsibly sourced trees. See the picture below for why they decided not to go with recycled paper
  • Compared to another toilet roll they sell, they have made the roll 45% longer, so each roll will last longer. This means you need to buy less rolls and have less toilet roll tubes to recycle afterwards. They say that it also means 30% less delivery trucks on the road
  • The company has a partnership with and supports Tree Aid – a UK charity which helps plant trees in Africa.

Are there any downsides?

The toilet paper is 2 ply. If you usually buy 3 ply toilet paper it will seem a bit thin compared to that. That said I have tested it out and although it does seem a bit thinner, it still does the job just fine.

How does the plastic free toilet paper compare price wise?

At the time of writing they are priced at £35.99 inclusive of delivery for 108 rolls. That works out at 33p a roll. This is very competitive with most toilet roll brands on offer in the supermarkets. Add to that it’s eco-credentials and the fact that each roll is longer than the average roll and it is very good value for money.

Conclusion

Overall I like the fact that the environment has been carefully considered when it comes to this product and that the toilet paper is affordable.

I tried going toilet paper free for a while, but in the long run it didn’t work for me. Most of us buy toilet paper week in, week out and switching to a greener budget toilet paper like this is an easy eco-thrifty swap to make!
