In a world where many people consume tons of disposable paper products daily, at some point it must be realized that there is a better, more environmentally friendly way.
On a global scale, it takes roughly 27,000 trees EACH DAY to make toilet paper.
It also takes about 17 trees and 20,000 gallons of water to make one ton of paper towels. In the US alone, 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced DAILY.
So what’s a better solution?
Well, it starts with using a more sustainable substance to begin with… and that material is bamboo.
Mercola Healthy Home Bamboo Bathroom Tissue and Bamboo Reusable Kitchen Towels are much kinder to the Earth, while being incredibly efficient.
Bamboo: The Sustainable Choice
Unlike hardwood trees, which can take anywhere from 20 to 50 years to be harvested, bamboo can typically be harvested in their fourth year. This is because bamboo grows extremely fast, and has been named by Guinness World Records as the fasting growing plant!
Plus, bamboo is self-regenerating when cut, so once you grow it and harvest it, you do not need to start over with the planting process again. And there is very little waste since every part of bamboo can be used.
Since the bamboo roots stay in place after harvesting, they prevent soil erosion and help retain nutrients for the next crop. This is in contrast to the soil erosion that occurs after hardwood trees are harvested.
One of the largest benefits of bamboo is that it has no natural pests, therefore doesn’t require the agricultural chemicals to grow that other crops do.
Superior “Closed Loop” Process
In many instances, the process of creating bamboo fiber requires toxic chemicals. The finished product is similar to rayon, and is sometimes called “bamboo rayon” due to the way it is chemically manufactured. The use of the chemicals, including sodium hydroxide and carbon disulfide are hazardous to the environment and to the workers at the manufacturing plant.
I spent a considerable amount of time searching for a bamboo bathroom tissue and reusable kitchen towels I was comfortable with.
Unlike many other products, Mercola Bamboo Bathroom Tissue and Reusable Kitchen Towels also do not use any bleaching agents in the making, so there is no chlorine exposure. Instead, hydrogen peroxide, a safe substance, is used --- making it better for the environment, and for you.
Mercola Reusable Kitchen Towels also use an advanced, closed loop process that recycles the solvent used to make bamboo fabric in a way that is better for the environment. In this system, plant emissions into the air and from waste water are much lower in comparison to other fiber operations.
So if you are already purchasing bamboo products, or are thinking about buying them, make sure toxic chemicals aren’t being used and that the process isn’t harming the environment.
Panda-Friendly Bamboo Paper Products
While the special bamboo fabric production process used is better for the environment, it also doesn’t harm pandas. This is because the bamboo species that the pandas eat is not the same kind of bamboo used to make Mercola Bamboo Bathroom Tissue and Reusable Kitchen Towels.
Only two kinds of bamboo species are suitable for making the special pulp used for the bamboo products. Since pandas do not eat either type, their vital food supply isn’t reduced.
Completely BPA-Free Bamboo Paper & Kitchen Towels
Many eco-friendly brands of toilet paper and paper towels whose products are labeled as “recycled” may be friendlier to the environment, but they may also pose a health risk to people. That’s because these products most likely contain the toxic chemical, BPA.
In contrast, Mercola Bamboo Bathroom Tissue and Reusable Kitchen Towels are completely BPA-free since they contain no recycled materials – only 100% virgin bamboo pulp.
The problem with recycled materials is that they contain a range of items, including recycled paper, which can include paper that has BPA. And the fact is that the toxic chemical has been largely detected in recycled paper products.
Soft and Durable Bamboo Bathroom Tissue
After knowing that Mercola Bamboo Bathroom Tissue and Reusable Kitchen Towels are better for the Earth and for you, the next question is how do they work and what do they feel like?
Mercola Bamboo Bathroom Tissue is incredibly soft, strong, and absorbent.
In order to get the bathroom tissue so soft, a special process using a unique kind of bamboo pulp is used – for your extreme comfort.
