 Recommended by Isabel M.

"If you're not ready to give up your paper towel habit, these rolls are a good first step. They are made from bamboo and sugercane, so made without trees, and come in plastic-free packaging."

Advantages...

  • 100% plastic-free
  • 100% biodegradable 
  • Zero trees
  • Zero air miles
  • Zero inks, dyes or scents 
  • Each roll has 120 large sheets (2-ply)
  • 50% of their profits go to help build toilets!

Disadvantages...

  • These are manufactured in China which means quite a long journey, however the materials are sourced from China and the new paper towels are shipped via sea
  • The rolls come individually wrapped in paper. This might seem wasteful and WGAC have put a lot of thought into packaging options. The best option would be to save wrappers and reuse them before recycling - such as for funky wapping paper!

Costs...

£14 for 6 super-long rolls (plus £4 shipping or free for orders over £20)

At £1.94 per 100 sheets this works out more expensive than supermarket own brand towels - for example Sainsbury's super absorbent towels are £1.17 per 100 sheets (when bought in a pack of 6).

Where to Buy...

Available in boxes of 6 rolls direct from Who Gives A Crap

Tips...

  • Who Gives A Crap also sell plastic-free recycled toilet paper. They also make tissues but when we last ordered these the tissues boxes included a plastic film around the opening
