I’m always looking for safe products to use in my house and for my family. When it came to paper products, I never really knew what to buy so I just purchased what was on sale. I thought all toilet paper, napkins, tissues, and paper towels were the same. All these products are white, which means they’re free of dyes and have to be safe, right? All paper products perform the same, right? Well, I was wrong. I was recently asked to write a review for Caboo Paper Products and now all the confusion has passed.
I tested four products by Caboo: napkins, paper towels, tissues, and toilet paper. First let me begin by telling you a little about the company. Caboo makes sustainable paper products from bamboo and sugarcane. These plants grow quickly so there’s no need to uselessly destroy trees. Unlike trees, bamboo and sugarcane do not require replanting. All of Caboo’s products are 100% biodegradable. This also means their products are more eco-friendly than their recycled counterparts. Lastly, they are non-GMO verified, BPA and chlorine free which was what interested me the most about this company.
When you think bamboo, you think hard and stiff. Caboo was anything but these things. I was really impressed with these products. The napkins were soft yet strong! They weren’t stiff like many other brands of napkins. The paper towels were similar. They were absorbent with spills and held up to hand drying and house cleaning. The tissues have lasted through three children with colds and several nosebleeds. We’ve had no blow-outs or pesky lint floating around.
Finally, the toilet paper. Many of us are toilet paper snobs (at least in my house). We want thickness so it doesn’t tear but not too thick because it will leave behind fuzzies. One ply is too thin and rigid but anything more can be too thick. Again, I was impressed with Caboo’s 2-ply softness. It’s velvety without all dust and lint and has just the right amount of texture.
Caboo has a luxurious feel you wouldn’t expect from eco-friendly products. The company puts your mind at ease by keeping the Earth clean while keeping your families safe. I highly recommend their products for their performance and their safety. You can pick them up at Whole Foods, Wegman’s, and Bristol Farms just to name a few. You can also log onto their website at caboopaper.com to search a Caboo retailer nearest you.
