Caboo Sustainable Bamboo and Sugarcane Paper Review
Together, we can help protect our environment for future generations through the choices we make every day. Caboo is a company that creates home care products from renewable resources using bamboo and sugarcane. Caboo toilet paper, paper towels, baby wipes and other paper products are made from fast-growing, renewable sugarcane and bamboo instead of trees.
Why Bamboo and Sugarcane?
Bamboo and Sugarcane are grasses, not hardwoods. They both grow very quickly and, after harvest, grow back just as quickly. No replanting is necessary. Unlike trees, which can take up to 30 years to grow and mature, bamboo and sugarcane grow back as quickly as in three to four months.
When a tree is cut, it never grows back. In addition, bamboo’s natural rhizome (root) network protects soil from erosion and retains moisture, and bamboo can grow in environments with depleted soil and little water. In fact, it actually returns nutrients to the soil; improving degraded areas. Bamboo doesn’t require fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides. Sugarcane is much like bamboo, but with an added environmental bonus. The “bagasse” – the dry fibrous residue that remains after the extraction of juice from the crushed stalks – is what we use to make our paper. Normally this bagasse is either disposed or burned, meaning we are re-purposing what would otherwise be discarded.
I received Caboo's Essentials Pack to review. (Shown below.)
Switching to Caboo can help save rainforests, water, and wildlife, and can make a real impact on reversing climate change. Bamboo can grow in environments with depleted soil and little water and actually returns nutrients to the soil, which improves degraded areas. Bamboo also doesn’t require fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides. An added and very important benefit is that Caboo paper is made from bamboo species that are not food sources for pandas.
My sample pack of Caboo products could not have arrived at a better time. Everyone in my family has colds, so the facial tissue has certainly come in handy. I am very impressed with the softness, durability and quality of each of the products.
I had never really put much thought into how the paper products that we use every day are made, but it makes sense to me that there are other resources that can be used instead of trees.
