4 great eco-friendly toilet paper brands you can buy

Published by Finn Hayden

It's only really in the Western world where we insist on using paper to wipe our bums, despite all the issues that it causes our planet. But we'll save our rant about toilet paper for another day, because let's face it - most of us like to use toilet paper to wipe our bums. And luckily, by using eco toilet paper to wipe your bum, you can wipe with paper and be eco-friendly.

There are actually quite a few options for eco-friendly toilet paper out there, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best eco toilet paper you can buy in the UK. Let's get into it:

Who Gives A Crap

Aside from having an awesome name, Who Gives A Crap makes awesome toilet paper too, as we outlined in our full review of this toilet paper - it's made from 100% recycled materials, most of which is post-consumer waste paper. This means it's made from things like office paper, and never from virgin trees. For this reason, it feels a little bit different from normal toilet paper, but it's still very soft and has a super comfy 3 ply. On top of being made from recycled materials, you can feel extra good about using this toilet paper because 50% of the profits from the sale of the products go directly to water, hygiene, and sanitation charities. Plus if you order it directly from the company you get Carbon neutral shipping. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk

The Cheeky Panda

All of the toilet paper sold by The Cheeky Panda is made from 100% sustainable bamboo - this is awesome because bamboo grows back 30 times faster than trees do and produces 65% fewer carbon emissions. The Cheeky Panda team also uses surplus Virgin Pulp bamboo which would otherwise be wasted. And you're not even taking away food from the pandas by using this toilet paper, because pandas don't like the taste of this bamboo! The toilet paper itself is super soft and naturally hypoallergenic too. The loo rolls come in a cardboard box without any packaging or wrapping, so everything is eco-friendly from top to bottom. The brand also has an 'Excellent' rating on Trustpilot. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk

Waitrose ECOlogical Toilet Tissue

We're disappointed to report that most of the major supermarkets don't have an own-brand eco toilet paper, but we're not surprised that Waitrose has it - the supermarket is big on being eco-friendly. This toilet paper from Waitrose is made using 100% recycled paper, and is actually quite reasonably priced too. We found it to be nice and soft and to feel just like the normal toilet paper from Waitrose. Learn more and buy it here - waitrose.com

Feel Good

Feel Good isn't an eco toilet paper brand which is quite as popular as the other brands that we've included in this guide, but we think it deserves to be more popular - it's made from 100% recycled paper, but it's not just any old paper that is recycled. The team at Feel Good uses the best quality paper that they can find, which typically comes from magazines and recycled office paper. It's 2 ply so it's very comfortable to use, and it's very reasonably priced too. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
