Spring is in the air and that means its hay fever season for many. While some love the changing of the seasons and the forthcoming summer, for some it’s a reason to reach for the tissue. Tissue paper has traditionally been tree-based but now those lovely people over at The Cheeky Panda have created bamboo tissue.

The bamboo tissue is 100% FSC certified and as bamboo fibre is longer than traditional tree fibre, its stronger too! That means you can give it a good hard sneeze and it will stay intact. The Cheeky Panda bamboo is carbon balanced with the World Land Trust, and for every pack that’s bought, a percentage of the revenue goes towards paying the salaries of the rangers protecting Vietnamese rainforests. It also looks good too!

The Cheeky Panda bamboo tissue is available as a 3-ply 80 sheet long box or a 56 sheet cube box. This is a brand-new product in the market, and complements the Amazon Launchpad best seller The Cheeky Panda toilet tissue.

The Cheeky Panda is quickly building a big fan base for its low carbon, ultra-sustainable and high quality approach to the market. Despite only being founded in 2016, it has been nominated for 10 awards in less than 12 months, and is in over 100 retail stores and many big name janitorial suppliers. It’s a real success story in how alternative sources can also be high quality.
