Why do we use recycled paper?
If you didn’t know by now – we use 100% recycled paper to make our soft and strong toilet rolls here at Feel Good. We also use recycled paper for our packaging.
We use only the best quality recycled paper, including waste office paper, to give us the whitest rolls.
But why do we use recycled paper, and why is it better for the environment?
Decreases the amount of material going to landfill
Sending waste paper to landfill releases methane gas, which is 23 times higher and more harmful to the environment than CO2! Using the waste paper instead for something useful, helps reduce this methane!
Less carbon emissions
Not only do we use materials sourced in the UK and Europe, which means we’re cutting down on carbon emissions by not shipping supplies from the other side of the world. The production of recycled paper (as opposed to new paper) uses a lot less energy to produce.
Uses less water
Manufacturing recycled paper also uses WAAAY less water – about 35,000 litres to be exact. We also use recycled water so an added bonus!
