About Reel Toilet Paper

Being eco-friendly always seems to come at a cost. Environmentally friendly products always seem to either cost more or to be a total pain to use. From bamboo toothbrushes that seem to fall apart in your mouth to high-priced recycled housewares, going green is not always as easy as it seems.

But Reel Toilet Paper is here to turn that pattern on its head. This company offers sustainable toilet paper that can make a difference when it comes to saving the planet - and saving your wallet, too.

How Does Reel Toilet Paper Work?

Reel Toilet Paper contains no inks, no dyes, and no BPA. It is made out of natural bamboo that is sustainably sourced and eco-friendly. Think it won’t be comfortable to use? Think again. This paper is made out of three plays for extra comfort, strength, and softness. Not sure what three ply means? It’s toilet paper that simply has three layers - each additional layer gives extra softness, strength, and comfort to your toilet paper.

The bamboo used to make Reel Toilet Paper is grown in renewable forests in Southwestern China. The paper is also manufactured in companies that follow ethical business practices abroad. 


Reel Toilet Paper is conveniently shipped right to your door. The company suggests “frequency based on toilet paper usage” to help minimize waste, but you can always change your subscription option if your needs change. You just choose how often you want to receive Reel when you purchase, the company delivers directly to your door with free shipping.

But the product’s reputation doesn’t end with the comfortable, sustainable toilet paper that the company produces. They care about helping the planet and in producing and supplying eco-friendly toilet paper, they also have a commitment to improving the quality of life to other people around the world.

The company’s website states a shocking figure - over 2.4 billion people are forced to use the bathroom outside every day. This can cause water to become contaminated, pathogens to be transmitted, and even deaths in extreme cases. The company has a clear, simple mission as a result - for every roll of toilet paper that you purchase, they donate a single-use biodegradable toilet to someone in need.

These aren’t just any old toilets - they neutralize bacteria so that waste can be transformed into valuable fertilizer. With Kenya as the first pilot country to receive this option, to date, they have donated 21,741 toilets.

Cost and Price Plans

You will have several purchasing options when it comes to purchasing Reel Toilet Paper. No matter which one you select, know that you will always receive 100% bamboo toilet paper that is sure to satisfy.

Competitors and Alternatives

The company offers free shipping on orders over $25 and is priced at 25 cents for 100 sheets.

Online Customer Reviews/Complaints

Reel Toilet Paper is still relatively new, but the company has garnered serious praise across the web. Customers claim that Reel Toilet Paper, “works just as well or better than Charmin or the other TP products, but it also has the added benefit of helping those in need around the world.” For many people, Reel Toilet Paper is becoming a new regular in the bathroom.

Each roll comes with 300 sheets of bamboo paper. Since each roll is also three-ply, you will use fewer sheets to save money and reduce your environmental footprint. Each roll is individually wrapped so that it can be free of plastic - instead, wrappers are made out of a mixed paper blend to adhere to top sustainability standards. The packaging is 100% compostable and all dyes are water-based.

Where to Buy?

Is Reel Toilet Paper Worth It?

Made out of bamboo, this toilet paper offers no difference in quality when compared to regular toilet paper. It reduces environmental impact by reducing our need for paper toilet products. Did you know that the equivalent of 27,000 trees is either flushed or sent to a landfill daily? This contributes to deforestation, which causes habitat loss, soil erosion, and other environmental problems.

You may not be able to totally save the planet by purchasing this toilet paper - but you can definitely take a step in the right direction. Reel Toilet Paper has guaranteed softness and strength, and it’s priced affordably so that anybody can make great strides toward helping out the rest of the globe.

It's perfectly fine.
March 20, 2020
I prefer tree-free paper products when I can find them, and Reel toilet paper is a good one. I appreciate that it has a smooth side and a more textured side (it feels softer to use than its closest competitor). And for its type, it's an affordable price point. I hope the line expands eventually to include towels and tissues - I'd buy them.

Good paper with a good cause
March 9, 2020

I like that companies are trying to make a difference AND create a more sustainable product.

I think the toilet paper is not those soft-cloud brands but it isn't scratchy newspaper either - it's right in between, feels thick enough and soft enough. I rate it perfectly good.

It works and doesn't kill trees!!
March 3, 2020
Not the softest however it is not sand paper. This is not 'plush' toilet paper, it works and doesn't fall apart when in use. I have been subscribed for a few months and gone through a few boxes, my household is happy with the rolls.

Softest I've used, Textured, Strong, Thicker Rolls
October 1, 2019
I have a bowl condition so I'm in the bathroom 5 times a day on a good day. I used it, stopped, and got a rash using other toilet papers. It is soft and very strong, plus it helps the environment and other people when they donate other rolls. Not sure what Molly was talking about, came here looking for more discounts on the rolls and found the review.

I can't use this paper
August 6, 2019

I'm giving this paper away. It's too thick, coarse and unusable. I'm hoping someone can use it -

Really bad product

HavokCry15 October 21, 2019

I will have to agree with Molly. It's not soft. My daughter and girlfriend won't use it either.

Molly C August 24, 2019

It's definitely not soft. My husband won't use it and my kids don't want to take it home, either. I'll probably donate it.

Sean A August 24, 2019

I'm interested in knowing why you find it unusable. The site had very few reviews with claims of softer

Sean A August 24, 2019

I'd be interested in trying a roll to know what you're talking about.
