- Old growth forests are complex ecosystems that develop over the course of centuries or millenia. Once cut down, they never regain their capacity for carbon storage or their ability to sustain wildlife.
- Toxic chemicals used in conventional TP bind with compounds in our environment to form dioxins and furans, known as Persistent Organic Pollutants, which are highly toxic, carcinogenic, and do not easily break down.
The more bamboo is harvested, the faster it grows. A bamboo grove may be able to produce as much 10x more usable fiber for paper than a forest of equivalent size. Bamboo stores up to 40% of its carbon underground, carbon that remains intact even when it’s harvested.
