27,000 trees are cut down every day to make toilet paper and they can’t be recycled. Leaving the trees alone is what basically Reel paper is out to do. Bamboo can grow three feet in just 24 hours is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can be harvested once a year and doesn’t need to be replanted. So there you go. It just keeps growing. It uses 30% less water than hardwood trees, and it gives up to 35% more oxygen than trees. Meaning an acre of bamboo can fix approximately 25 metric tons of atmospheric co2 per year. That’s pretty cool. And it’s soft. The strong bamboo makes a much softer paper product than many made from recycled paper and wood fiber. So these guys make a product that is comfortable and sustainable. And they send you a box of 24 rolls, we got one, and it’s got three-ply for extra softness. It’s biodegradable, super soft, a strong 300 sheets per roll. And what’s even better doesn’t have any dyes or inks in it. A lot of these toilet papers have dyes, inks, perfumes, etc, etc.
So, on top of that, in trying to make the world a better place, they have a mission to change lives and eliminate the threat of illness posed by lack of toilets to countries that are struggling, so they support a partner called Soil. And since 2006 Soil has been helping transform waste in Haiti. They provide toilets to remove waste from communities and prevent the spread of waterborne disease.
So when you’re buying Reel, you’re helping the world and you’re helping the environment so that’s not too bad is it? So we got a chance to try it out tested it with a few different people gave it the good old, you know, we tested it, let’s put it that way. And I can tell you, the product is pretty unique doesn’t have any of the smelly dyes or different smells to them. It is very strong, I gotta tell you, it’s very strong. It’s pretty gripping. I even use it to like wipe down my sink. It was almost more durable than some of the paper towels I’ve seen when it comes to it. So definitely durable comes in these beautiful nice rolls that are wonderfully put together with the logo on them tells you you’re helping the world.
