Hello! Please meet BOO.

1633004594_img_20210929_184515_710.jpg

Boo is a Bristol born initiative aimed at tackling one major aspect of the climate emergency: our over reliance on felling trees to meet human needs. Que BOO, a totally tree-free toilet roll.

Every single box of BOO not only prevents trees from being cut down, every box plants a tree via the Eden Project. We will plant more trees and do more good by giving as much back to community and planet as we grow.

Approximately 15-million trees are cut down each year in the UK alone.  Globally the number reaches billions. This is something we want to address. 

Most toilet roll sold in the UK is produced from soft virgin wood pulp, 60% of which is imported from EU forests. Trees can take anywhere from 10 and 25 years to reach their maturity. This makes the process of growing trees for toilet roll not only inefficient and unsustainable, but it means by relying on virgin wood we are perpetuating deforestation. This in turn is going to have long-term negative impact on local eco-systems, biodiversity, soil health and air quality.

Deforestation is cited as a major contributor to our over heating planet with an estimated 46% of all trees lost since the arrival of humans.Healthy soil and rich, dense forests store carbon and are home to over three quarters of all life on Earth according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).  Degrading soil and disappearing trees results in more green house gas escaping into the atmosphere and heating our planet. In short, humans and the natural world need native, indigenous trees in healthy soil to restore our planet back to her optimum health.

With your support we can change this norm,  reduce human reliance on trees to produce tree-free paper from one of the world's most sustainable materials, bamboo.

By supporting our crowdfund we will produce a sustainable and viable alternative, an initiative we hope will have a markedly positive impact on preserving Earth's forests for years to come.
