Why switch to Sugarcane?

Eco-Friendly Cleaning 3-Oct-23 | By Steve

Why switch to Sugarcane?

Traditional toilet rolls might get the job done, but they’re not exactly eco-friendly.

They’re usually made from wood pulp, which means deforestation, habitat loss, and increased carbon emissions. Basically, a load of bad stuff.

To make matters even worse, most of them are packaged in plastic, which adds to the environmental toll when thrown away.

But fear not! If you’re looking for a more sustainable option, making the switch to eco-friendly toilet rolls can make a real difference.

There are a few great alternatives out there, like bamboo and recycled paper, but there’s an even better option for the planet: sugarcane! Curious? Let me tell you why…


1. Tackles deforestation

Sugarcane is a massively renewable resource. It grows super fast, and it can be harvested multiple times from the same crop without causing permanent damage to the plant or its ecosystem. By making the switch to sugarcane-based toilet rolls, your household is actively doing its part to reduce the demand for wood pulp and protect our precious forests from getting the axe.

2. Reduces your household’s plastic waste

Most regular toilet rolls come wrapped in plastic, which takes decades or even centuries to break down. This means it sticks around to cause havoc for both humans and animals. Oh, and did we mention its massive carbon footprint?!

By switching to a sugarcane-based brand that’s not packaged in plastic (like Sweet Cheeks), you’ll instantly slash the plastic waste your household generates, becoming a true champion in the battle against pollution.

3. Protects the ocean… and your drains

Sugarcane fibres are much shorter and less dense than wood fibres. Bacteria and other decomposers can break them down way faster, so there’s much less chance of them blocking your drains or septic tanks. No more calls to the plumber or using ocean-damaging chemicals to unclog stubborn pipes – simply flush them away and they’re gone for good!

4. Helps conserve water

Growing sugarcane requires a lot less water than growing trees. When you use sugarcane-based toilet rolls, you’re actually helping conserve water without even realising it!

Think about all those places where water is scarce or needs to be managed more sustainably. By choosing sugarcane toilet paper, you’re indirectly reducing the demand for water in the manufacturing process, helping both humans and wildlife thrive.

5. Shrinks your carbon footprint

Not only do sugarcane loo rolls emit fewer greenhouse gases during production than regular wood-pulp toilet paper, but the sugarcane crop itself is also great at absorbing the carbon in our atmosphere. Its unique sequestration process means it absorbs 300 million tonnes of CO2 per year – think of it as nature’s own carbon vacuum cleaner!

When you buy sugarcane-based products, you’re indirectly encouraging farmers to grow more sugarcane. More sugarcane means less carbon, which combats climate change and helps work towards a greener future for all.


Give your family the gift of comfort

Let’s be real: no one likes wiping their bum with cheap and flimsy loo roll. Sure, it gets the job done (usually), but it’s not exactly a pleasant experience. Your household will be unhappy, and your visitors won’t be best pleased either (even if they’re too polite to say so!).

When you deck out your bathroom with Sweet Cheeks toilet rolls, you’re elevating your home to a whole new level of comfort. The result? Happy family, happy friends, and a happy home!

Take a small step towards sustainability

Stocking your bathroom with sugarcane toilet rolls is a fantastic step you can take to boost your home’s sustainability. Not only that, but it’s a simple yet effective way to teach your family the importance of caring for the environment.

Sugarcane loo rolls are the most sustainable type out there. They’re made from sugarcane fibre, a byproduct of sugar processing, and don’t contribute to deforestation in any way. Sugarcane also grows back super fast and doesn’t cause as much harm to the environment during processing.

Sweet Cheeks loo rolls are made from sustainably sourced sugarcane and are 100% plastic-free (including the packaging), so you can wave goodbye to unnecessary waste. By stocking your bathrooms with them, you’re not only playing your part towards a cleaner, greener future – you’re encouraging everyone who visits your bathroom to follow suit.

Your drains will love it, too!

Blocked drains are a nightmare – they cost a fortune to fix and leave your toilet out of commission for days. It’s even worse if you’ve only the one loo in your home!

Luckily, Sweet Cheeks loo rolls are here to save the day. Unlike traditional wood-pulp rolls, the paper breaks down in a mere 4 seconds, way quicker than the 19-second industry standard. Say goodbye to clogs and hello to toilets your family can rely on. Plus, there’s no more plumber-induced delays messing with their day!

Make your family, bank account, and the planet happy with Sweet Cheeks!

Sweet Cheeks are all about offering the perfect combination of sustainability and luxury. Our toilet paper is incredibly soft, gentle on the skin, and just as strong as regular rolls. It’s also 100% fragrance-free, making it a true winner for people with sensitive skin.

But that’s not all – their 3-ply loo rolls are designed to be your money-saving heroes! They’re twice the length of other brands, boasting 400 sheets instead of the usual 200. This means you won’t have to worry about restocking as often and can enjoy some extra savings for yourself!

Whether you’re all about adding comfort to your home, making sustainable choices, or simply saving some cash in the long run, Sweet Cheeks is the way to roll.
