Sustainable tissue paper made from sugar cane? Almost good enought to eat!

To my shame, my first thought when I read about tissues made from sugar cane was, “Can you eat them?”

Papura tissues are made almost entirely from sugar cane

Papura make face tissues and toilet tissue from the left over straw of sugar cane stalks.

Normally, the straw would be thrown away, but instead Papura recycle the straw after the sugar has been extracted. (So, no, it’s not edible.)

No bleach or other nasty chemicals are used to make Papura tissues either, just a gentle disinfectant – that means they’re ideal for sensitive skin.

Sensitive. Sustainable. Recycled from the straw of sugar cane. Soft on the environment and soft on you? Just one word comes to mind…

‘Sweet!’

  1. That was my first thought too, are they eatable? This would lead to many more and longer bathroom breaks with an increase of toilet paper sales.
