Have you heard of Tŷ Môr saving the planet one wipe at a time?

Disclosure.  This post is a review of a product that I helped to crowdfund.  All opinions are my own.

You never appreciate what you have until it’s gone. Toilet paper is a good example.

I am passionate about the environment and sustainability, so whenever I see a Crowdfunder for a small business in this area, I do my best to support them. Tŷ Môr was one that caught my eye last year. They are a natural fibre toilet paper which is 100% environmentally friendly made by ShearWater Eco™. (The website is currently being updated, but should be available within a couple of weeks).

Tŷ Môr natural toilet paper

I had to wait a while to receive the 48 rolls that I crowdfunded, due to technical issues that needed resolving in their supply chain, but they did supply smaller quantities in the interim. However I now have a cupboard full of environmentally friendly toilet paper. This many rolls are going to last a while. And no plastic in sight, just like how I remember we used to be able to purchase loo roll.

The Tŷ Môr toilet paper is tree less, plastic free, 30m per roll, is a natural colour with no bleaching agents, no dyes, no harmful chemicals and no BPA. It is 100% biodegradable, recyclable, and carbon positive. And it is made from sustainably sourced, fast-growing plant fibre materials such as rattan, bamboo, hemp and sisal. No trees at all. In fact, planting bamboo has been proven to be great for rejuvenating poor soil.

ShearWater Eco™ have recently received a grant from the Development Bank of Wales to invest in their dream of growing and manufacturing their toilet paper in the UK. Currently it is shipped from overseas.

Unless you’ve gone the whole hog to use washable cloths instead, toilet paper is an essential that we all need to buy regularly. So it makes perfect sense to choose the most environmentally friendly type possible. Do you really need white or coloured toilet paper? Stop and think about this, it doesn’t grow white or coloured. Bleach or dye must have been used. Even some of the other supposedly eco brands are not quite as eco as they claim.

Plus it is priced very competitively, especially as they are not charging VAT at present, so currently £24.99 for 48 rolls. And for those of you, who don’t have room to store 48 loo rolls, it also comes in packs of 4, 9 or 16. They are expanding their stockists but you can buy it directly from their online store. It would be fabulous to see these products in my local zero waste store, so I’ve let Tŷ Môr know the contact details. Plus they even sell gift cards. What a good gift idea for the person who has everything!

Also I have an offer to pass on to my readers – 10% off your order at Tŷ Môr with discount code: W935IZYJOFMY.

    I’ve been so inspired by what you are doing – we’ve made a partial switch to toothpaste tablets, growing our own veg a bit, and thinking twice before buying things. I read something today which has really shaken me up – I knew about the sea plastic but had no idea just how massive the problem was with the massive “garbage patches” in the pacific. just mind blowing how awful and big the problem is.

    I’d love to try this! I think a great swap is using a reusable cloth to remove your make up rather than cotton pads or make up wipes.

    I’ve stopped buying plastic bottle of water and just buying a sports bottle to refill. Also have a bamboo toothbrush!

    I have started swapping all the plastic I use in the bathroom. I now use bamboo cotton buds. Reusable face cloths. A Moon cup. And shampoo bars instead of bottles

    I love the “let us infect each other with Love, that includes Love for all creatures we share this planet with too” post. The photo of the gorgeous cubs grabbed my attention straight away.

    My best swap began when the super markets began charging for carrier bags, and I began to carry string bags in my handbag. I enjoy using the string bags and have even made some myself with my grandkids, which was fun x

    We stopped buying straws years ago, use metal/glass/rubber ones now. We have reusable bags for buying loose fruit and veg in supermarkets and of course reusable carrier bags. Buy paper instead of plastic whenever we can

      Yes I’ve swapped a few plastic containers for glass when they have split, but loads more plastic containers left here, especially as I had tended to accumulate, like hoarding old ice cream plastic tubs in case they came in useful

    I’d love to have an alternative to killing trees to gain the paper for my notebooks and calendars, as I do like to write, and using a computer isn’t as personel or as much fun! I like this post:

      That is a very good point. Many years ago, I remember someone bringing back a notepad that they had purchased on holiday which was made from elephant dung. A novelty item at the time, but it would be great if initiatives like these could be made more mainstream

    My favaourite post is this one because affordability is so very important in persuading people to make the eco choice. “How to save the planet? Keep eco products affordable for everyone. That’s how we do it with our Ty Mor range of affordable TP. £24.99 for a box of 48 rolls, 3ply, 30m. We are the cheapest eco friendly TP in the 🇬🇧”
