We created
Greencane Paper
to help save trees.

 

 

In 2009, when Geoff and Helen Arden launched Greencane Paper, it was never as much about starting a business as it was about asking why so much valuable timber was going into low-value products like toilet paper and paper towels. “It’s wrong that we grow trees for 20 to 30 years to end up as toilet paper, when there is a sustainable alternative,” says Geoff.

 

“As founders, we are immensely proud that Greencane now sells in over six countries and has thousands of supporters every day. Looking back over the past few years, we know this would not have been possible without the dedication of our team, the support shown by Greencane stockists and, of course, our wonderful customers, who make a positive impact on our planet with every purchase.” 

 

 

   

 

Why sugarcane and bamboo fibre?

 

Both sugarcane and bamboo are types of grass that are fast-growing in tropical regions and are farm-harvested on an annual basis. Farming them has an extremely low environmental impact, requiring few inputs other than sun and water.

 

Proudly plastic-free

 

Greencane’s packaging commitment is to be plastic-free and 100 percent biodegradable. For our packaging, we use cardboard, paper and plant-based, compostable clear cellophane.

 

 

“By choosing Greencane Paper you send a powerful message that you value our environment. For us to be a part of this is amazing.”
