New stretch target

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.
