Why toilet paper needs to break down easily
It is important for toilet paper to break down quickly to avoid blocking our septic tank and sewage systems. Whilst all toilet paper is biodegradable because it’s made from natural materials, specifically biodegradable bamboo paper like our Bippy option dissolves in water 4 times faster. You can test how easily your toilet paper dissolves by taking a single sheet and putting it in a jar with approximately 2 cups of water and shake for 10-seconds.

This also gives you a rough estimate of whether it will be possible to unclog your toilet if you repeatedly flush it in the span of several minutes. As bamboo paper breaks down into smaller pieces than regular TP, the chances of it building up enough to clog a toilet are remarkably low.
