What does climate positive mean?
The Toitū climate positive certification is one of the most robust of its kind. It’s much more holistic than other standards, because it requires organisations to take true responsibility.
The Toitū climate positive certification requires us to not only measure and offset our emissions, we also align with science based targets, influence supply chain networks and educate stakeholders about emissions reductions too.
EcoRoll is part of the first ever company to achieve this and proudly leads the way for other Kiwi businesses. In addition, we are also Toitū carbonzero certified and have been since our inception in 2019.
What does FSC mean?
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is the highest level of forestry management certification in the world. It's a non-profit organisation that tracks the entire supply chain of certified wood, paper and bamboo product to ensure it has been responsibly sourced. EcoRoll is made from 100% FSC certified bamboo (FSC-C142978).
Is there plastic in your TP?
Ecoroll is plastic-free. We have redesigned a small thing to make a bigger impact, and a big part of that is wrapping our rolls in beautiful paper as opposed to plastic.
What about the wrapper and the core?
EcoRoll is made from responsibly sourced bamboo. The inner core and wrapper are made from paper, and we are working on achieving certification for these paper components.
Why is bamboo TP better than normal tree TP?
Bamboo is an incredible renewable resource. Depending on the species, bamboo can be harvested in one to five years, compared to approximately 30-40 years for hardwood trees. When bamboo is harvested, it grows a new shoot from its root system, with no need for additional planting or cultivation. It requires no chemicals, pesticides or fertiliser to grow and thrive - its own fallen leaves provide the necessary nutrients. Every part of the bamboo plant can be utilised to make a wide variety of products, meaning minimal waste.
Why do you individually wrap your TP?
Our bamboo TP is individually wrapped to keep the rolls clean and hygienic in the busiest bathrooms. Wrapping is also required to protect them from moisture during shipping, so we wrap them beautifully and without plastic.
Where does your bamboo come from?
We source our FSC® certified bamboo right from the biggest grower of bamboo, China. More specifically, Sichuan Province where bamboo is prevalent. It was extremely important to us that we picked a source of bamboo that was FSC certified so we could guarantee the responsible management of those forests and the management of workers throughout the entire supply chain.
Where is EcoRoll made?
EcoRoll is made in China. Here we can access the best and most responsibly sourced FSC® certified bamboo. We offset our carbon emissions in all shipping and delivery.
Is EcoRoll hypoallergenic?
EcoRoll is very soft and is safe for those with skin sensitivities (although please note there are no standards to define a products hypoallergenic quality).
Unlike many TPs which use traditional chlorine to whiten and soften their paper (and can cause skin sensitivities), we’ve opted for a much gentler agent which ensures our bamboo product is more suitable for more bottoms.
EcoRoll uses a process called ECF (elemental chlorine free) bleaching, which is a bleaching sequence without the use of elemental chlorine. What’s better is that unlike traditional chlorine, EFC is much gentler on the environment as the process involves the use of Oxygen.
