We did it! Thank you for helping us turning this concept into reality. Our first shipment is now on the way. Please continue to support our project as we are already looking at developing our range to include Bamboo Kitchen roll and luxury 4 ply. If we can really stretch it to £15k we can pay for the machine to make a panda head to be printed on each sheet so you will know you are using bamboo tissues.
1- How strong is The Cheeky Panda toilet tissue?
The Cheeky Panda tissue is slightly stronger than most of the mainstream brand classic range. The mainstream brand classic range is 2 ply, The Cheeky Panda classic range is 3ply.
2- Does it eventually break down easily in sewers and macerators?
The product is 100% biodegradable. It breaks down easily in sewers and macerators.
3- Why bamboo toilet tissue?
Compared to tree-based tissues: Bamboo grows 20-30 times faster, produces 35% more oxygen and absorbs 35% more carbon than trees;
Compared to recycled tissues: No de-inking agent or harsh chemicals required in the manufacturing process. Bamboo has many skin friendly qualities such as naturally anti-bacteria, anti-fungal and odour resistant.
4- What are the other benefits of the product?
The product meets FDA (U.S. Food and Drag Administration) standards and is 100% B.P.A free.

No money will be debited from your account before the 1st of April and in the unlikely event the production is cancelled all money will be refunded, so you are basically in a risk free win-win!
