In our house, we use bamboo paper towels, bamboo facial tissue and bamboo toilet paper. But we didn’t have tree-free table napkins. So I went on a quest to find some. Luckily in this day of computers it’s easy to track down almost anything you want. So I went online and discovered Sustainable Paper Napkins. I’m happy to tell you that they are made from renewable bamboo and sugarcane. They are grown as a verified non-GMO project and this company donates 1% of its sales to environmental non-profit organizations focused on sustainability. According to its packaging, sugarcane and bamboo are among the fastest growing grasses on Earth, and bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than trees. After harvest they grow back from their own roots in as little as 3-4 months, which is up to 120 times faster than traditional hardwoods. The tissue is free of all wood fiber and the sugarcane they use is a by-product of sugar manufacturing. The variety of bamboo they use is not a food source for Panda Bears and their bamboo harvesting has no effect on the habitat of Panda Bears. They do not test on animals, and last but not least, the packaging is recyclable. We ordered them and we use them. I feel like it enables us to help each other, not to mention Mother Earth.
