sugarcane toilet paper from gudco

by Sharné

Gudco is a local company that makes Gudsheet 2ply and 1ply toilet paper from locally sourced sugarcane that is free from plastic packaging. Every purchase helps Gudco provide Toilets to South African underprivileged schools and crèches, and Toilet Paper to those in need.

Many Schools in SA don’t have toilets!

Mandela once said that our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. When you realise that thousands of schools in South Africa don’t have modern day toilets, and many don’t even have toilet paper, you realise that we as a country are failing our children. Proper sanitation in schools is a human right. I want to do something to help, and you can too!!!

Gudco Toilet Paper

Gudco is a socially and environmentally conscious company. Each toilet roll is hand wrapped in eco-friendly paper, which is then packaged in paper boxes instead of single use plastic as most traditional toilet paper is. Selling the toilet paper rolls in bulk (48 rolls per bulk) reduces the packaging as well as lowers the carbon footprint of the product. 

The toilet paper is 100% biodegradable, BPA free, contains no chlorine, acids, inks or dyes. It is made from 60% sugarcane fibre and 40% FSC approved wood pulp. Sugarcane is a quick growing grass that is often used instead of trees in order to combat deforestation. Sugarcane paper is made from bagasse which is essentially the left over pulp after sugarcane has been crushed to extract the juice which is used to make sugar. Wood pulp is a sustainable material because it is a renewable source, albeit only if properly managed. In order to halt deforestation, The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) ensures that FSC certified forests are responsibly managed, and only harvested at such a rate that the forest itself can manage to reproduce. 

Gudsheet 2-Ply purchases helps build Toilets for underprivileged schools & crèches, while the 1-Ply provides Toilet Paper to those in need. I’ve been using Gudco’s 2-Ply for a while now and I can honestly say that I will never go back to traditional toiletpaper.

Where to buy?

You can buy toilet paper in bulk directly on the Gudco website or in bulk and per roll at one of their many stockists which include, Shop Zero, The Daily Goods Store, Faithful to Nature, and Nude Foods
