Founded in 2016 by Essex entrepreneurs, Julie Chen and Chris Forbes, The Cheeky Panda is an award winning company creating sustainable, affordable luxury tissue paper products from Bamboo, the world’s fastest growing plant.
The Cheeky Panda was created after a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund bamboo-based sustainable products.
The Cheeky Panda philosophy is to bring sustainability to the mass market, in their own cheeky way!. Inspiring people to ditch the mundane in favour of products that fit a happier and healthier future!.
The Cheeky Panda work towards 3 core values in everything they do:
Innovate, Impact & Inspire!
Around 10 million trees are used every year to manufacturer toilet paper, it’s a leading cause of de-forestation and loss of animal habitat across our global ecosystems. Continuing to use trees for toilet tissue is not sustainable. Bamboo is a ‘superplant’ and grows 20 times faster than trees, up to one meter a day unlike trees that can take up to 30 years to mature.
Both Julie and Chris are passionate about the environment and sustainability and through The Cheeky Panda brand, want to show that there are luxurious, sustainable, natural alternatives that don’t cost more.
Cheeky Panda products are Vegan friendly (The Vegan Society), Cruelty Free (The Leaping Bunny), FSC Approved and Dermatologically tested.
As early adopters, Futures Supplies became a distributor of The Cheeky Panda Toilet Roll to the professional market in 2017, the range has now grown to a selection of other bamboo washroom, cleaning & beauty products.
The Cheeky Panda products are made from FSC® certified tropical bamboo, they are luxuriously soft, sustainable and innovative.
