Tanki toilet paper stands out by being sustainable, plastic-free, and free from glue. It's designed to disperse completely during flushing, preventing blockages.
Glue, often containing various synthetic chemicals and polymers, can have detrimental effects on the environment due to several reasons:
Non-Biodegradable: Many types of glue are non-biodegradable, meaning they don't break down naturally over time. This can lead to the accumulation of waste in landfills and ecosystems.
Chemical Composition: Glues can contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contribute to air pollution and can be harmful to both human health and the environment
Water Contamination: Improper disposal of glue-containing products can lead to water contamination. When glue enters water bodies, it can disrupt aquatic ecosystems and harm aquatic life.
Wildlife Impact: Wildlife can ingest or get entangled in discarded items that contain glue. This can lead to injury or death for animals and disrupt ecosystems.
Recycling Challenges: Products with glue are often difficult to recycle, as the adhesive properties can interfere with the recycling process
Microplastic Generation: Some types of glue, especially those found in laminated products, can release microplastics into the environment as they break down.
Considering these factors, using products like Tanki toilet paper, which is glue-free and designed with the environment in mind, can help minimize the negative impact of glue on our surroundings.

Two key points to consider are:
Bleaching Process: Tanki toilet paper does not undergo any bleaching at the point of tissue production in the UK.
ECF Bleaching Method: The bleaching method used in the production of the pulp, where tree-related colours and bark are removed, is the ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) method. This is a recognized and safe bleaching process extensively used in the tissue industry. It ensures that the tissue remains free from any potential harmful effects associated with conventional bleaching methods.
These processes are in place to deliver a high-quality product that upholds our commitment to both your well-being and the environment. Tanki toilet paper is a result of responsible manufacturing that aims to provide the best without compromising on safety or sustainability.
