In just under a year, award winning company The Cheeky Panda, who create sustainable, skin friendly tissue paper products from Bamboo, have made a mark on the world of sustainability.
The company, founded by Julie Chen and Chris Forbes, started off selling conventional toilet tissue back in August 2016. Since then they have been nominated for 10 awards in less than 12 months for innovation and sustainability; taking on a lot of initial feedback from early adopters who desired the brand to create a range of products for both retail and B2B.
In March this year, The Cheeky Panda launched their professional range which included, 300 meter jumbo rolls, 150 meter mini jumbo rolls and Z Fold Handtowels. The release was a commercial success and are set to be utilised by some flagship financial services clients.
Just two months later, in May, they launched the long box and cube box facial tissue; these products, with their distinctive white and green bamboo packaging, have since made multiple appearances in meeting rooms across the country.
Looking forward, The Cheeky Panda are maintaining strong relationships with large corporations and are looking to supply their distinctive products internationally.
Awards wise, the company have been shortlisted for The Green Awards 2017 for Fast Track Company of the Year and the National Recycling Awards 2017 for Waste Prevention.
The company said:
“It a great honour and privilege to be recognised by these two most prestigious Green and Recycling Awards. To be in the final alongside brands like Costa Coffee and Pod Point is a great achievement for our Bamboo Tissue business. We save a tonne of carbon per 1,000 people per month, versus conventional tissue, the ultra-sustainability of bamboo and the luxury quality of our tissue has given us a massive adoption curve and we are still at the start of a very amazing journey. “
The new products, including the Cube Tissue and Long box Tissue, are now available on Amazon, Lyreco and CLF.
