Make an easy swap for a more eco-friendly home
Why Cheeky Panda?
Cheeky Panda share our ethos of making sustainability as easy and affordable as possible.
Their range of bamboo household essentials offer eco alternatives to products that you may have never even considered to be bad for the environment.
Luckily, this is where we can help, we have everything you need to make those easy eco swaps in one place, saving you the time and hassle of searching.
What’s more, as well as Cheeky Panda’s Head of Quality Control, Leo (their youngest and cutest Panda!), our own eco kings and queens have tried and tested the products against some supermarket favourites to give them the SaveMoneyCutCarbon seal of approval.
Better for you
At first glance you will see no difference between Cheeky Panda products and your supermarket favourites – which is why we love them! Sustainability couldn’t be easier when you don’t actually have to think about it.
Now, you may be thinking that products such as pocket and facial tissues don’t need to be “eco” – they’re made from paper, and paper is biodegradable, right?! Well yes, but most have some form of plastic within their packaging and, whether that’s recyclable or not, only about 9% of the plastic ever produced has been recycled!
What’s more, bamboo is just much better for your skin. It’s naturally antimicrobial and creates less dust – the perfect tissue for hay fever sufferers.
Cheeky Panda bamboo products are free from fragrance, chlorine bleach, bisphenol A (BPA) and other allergen nasties, a clear winner for those with sensitive skin.
And great news for cold sufferers – bamboo has a moisturising agent in it, so goodbye balsam tissues and hello Cheeky Panda.
Better for the Planet
Did you know that 27,000 trees are cut down every single day to make your traditional paper household products? This is a huge deforestation problem, even if companies commit to offsetting. When trees are harvested for paper products they don’t grow back!
Bamboo (don’t worry, it’s not the same type that pandas love) is a much more sustainable alternative.
- It can grow 3 feet in 24 hours!
- It grows 30 times faster than traditional trees.
- It’s completely renewable as once harvested, the plant will start growing again instantaneously.
- It produces 30% more oxygen than traditional trees.
- It absorbs 35% more CO2 than traditional trees.
- It grows wild and like a weed.
