Bamboo pulp papers are more bacteriostatic and healthier.
It is a common fact that bamboo can thrive naturally without using any pesticide. Scientists found that bamboo owns a unique anti -bacteria and bacteriostatic bio-agent named "bamboo Kun". This substance is combined with bamboo cellulose during the process of being manufactured into bamboo fiber. Under the microscope, you can find out that the bacteria on the wood pulp paper will rapidly reproduce, while the bacteria on the bamboo pulp paper will not only not reproduce, but also die 72% within 24 hours. This is because the "bamboo Kun" in bamboo is a natural bactericidal component, which can prevent insects and stink, inhibit the growth of bacteria and protect the environment naturally.
Bamboo fiber has particular and natural functions of anti-bacteria, bacteriostatic and deodorization. It is validated by Japan Textile Inspection Association that even after fifty times of washing bamboo fiber fabric still possesses excellent function of anti-bacteria. Its test result show over 70% elimination rate after bacteria being incubated on bamboo fiber fabric.
Uses fast-growing grasses, not trees
Because bamboo and sugar cane are grasses rather than hardwoods, they both grow very quickly and, after harvest, grow back just as quickly – in as little as three to four months (trees can take up to 30 years to grow). No replanting is necessary – unlike trees, which never grow back after being cut down. About 83 million rolls of toilet paper are produced from trees each day.
Kind on the environment
Switching to STIN bamboo paper can help save rainforests, water, and wildlife, and can make a real impact on reversing climate change. Bamboo can grow in environments with depleted soil and little water and actually returns nutrients to the soil, which improves degraded areas. Bamboo also doesn’t require fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides. An added and very important benefit is that STIN paper is made from bamboo species that are not food sources for pandas.
The sustainable alternative
Switching to STIN bamboo paper can help you move toward a more sustainable lifestyle. In fact it’s probably one of the easiest things you can do to help the environment in your daily life. If you operate a business, switching to STIN bamboo paper can contribute toward your company’s sustainability goals.
More eco-friendly than recycled paper
Recycling or processing a tree into tissue can take much more water and energy than the minimal processing necessary to turn bamboo and sugarcane into paper. BPA can also be found in recycled tissue after deinking and cleaning recycled paper. STIN bamboo paper is 100% BPA free.
Softer and stronger than recycled paper.
Unlike recycled bath tissue, which can be rough or thin, bamboo fibres produce a much softer product than recycled paper. And it’s strong, too – bamboo’s natural qualities make a paper that’s been tested to be stronger than recycled tissue of the same weight.
Bamboo bath tissue is 100% biodegradable. It’s fibers quickly dissolve back into the earth – making it safe for all septic systems.
