About Bamboo Bobbi
Bamboo Bobbi is a company that produces bamboo toilet paper that they believe to be the least environmentally impactful paper you can buy.
The rolls they create are made from 100% sustainable, FSC traceable, hand-cut bamboo and are completely tree-free! The bamboo paper is naturally hypoallergenic and soft meaning it's kind to your skin (more specifically your bum!) and the planet.
What is FSC?
FSC stands for 'Forest Certification' and simply put means that the bamboo that Bamboo Bobbi use comes from a sustainable forest.
A FSC certification ensures biodiversity and the preservation of habitats and biotopes typical of forests. It also safeguards the rights of people working in forests and ensures that forests can continue to be used for recreational purposes.
About the Paper
Reasons these loo rolls are more sustainable:
They are natural
Made from hand-cut bamboo
Dust and Chemical Free
Free from inks and dyes
Free from fragrance and scents
No unnecessary wrapping
100% plastic free
Each roll has 200 sheets which is around the average number of sheets on a standard toilet paper roll meaning it lasts just as long as its competitors.
Using bamboo as a raw material is suggested to be less environmentally damaging than traditional toilet paper that is made using virgin forest.

Bamboo Bobbi was kind enough to send me a pack of toilet rolls to test and review!
The first thing that stands out about this paper is obviously its colour which I'm a big fan of. Unlike other common bleached loo rolls these ones look so natural in my bathroom and are often a great conversation starter for visitors (now that we are allowed to visit each other).
They rolls work really well, are super soft and last just as long as a standard loo roll and the quality is fantastic. The paper also features a cute little panda which is just adorable!
I will say that I wish they had the option to order smaller quantities as I live in a cottage so have very little storage space!
