Discover the Worlds first Bioactive Toilet Paper from Italy

18/09/2015 - 2 minutes

Papernet biotech (part of the Italian Sofidel Group) launched their biological toilet paper back in 2007 as an answer to our hygiene based ecological crisis. With over 7Bn rolls produced per year in the US alone, Papernet is an award-winning subsidiary of the hygiene giant’s portfolio.

logoPapernetThe invention of using paper for hygiene purposes was born in China, and started mass-production during the 14th century. However, toilet paper as we know it today was first made in the 19th century, with the roll-based dispenser being patented in 1883. Since toilet paper is consumed as an everyday essential in the West (7Bn rolls/year in the USA), it has therefore amassed a large ecological footprint with around 27,000 trees consumed each day across the globe.

Launch of the first eco-friendly toilet paper (during 2007) by Papernet Biotech is therefore revolutionizing the paper manufacturing industry.  Invented by Bianchi, Benedusi & Altheimer, the paper contains spores  of non-pathogenic bacteria strains which germinate on contact with water, the bio-bog roll improves biodegradation in septic tanks.
