Yes! They really are! All the raw materials are plastic free, and our toilet rolls and kitchen paper are popped into a sturdy cardboard box to ensure they arrive on your doorstep damage free. Top tip – why not use the cardboard box for the ultimate arts and craft project or re-use it for extra storage? If you just want to simply recycle it, pop this in your paper recycling bin along with your paper wrapping.
Oceans Toilet Tissue is made from virgin pulp cellulose – a clean, wood-based raw material – which is what makes our loo roll super soft and strong.
All our virgin pulp cellulose is sustainably sourced and is FSC® certified. FSC® stands for Forest Stewardship Council® and they are on a mission to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management. They carefully manage forest habitats in a sustainable way – environmentally, economically and socially – to ensure the longevity of supply is in harmony with the surrounding ecosystem.
FSC® certified materials are fully traceable back to the forest where the paper originated from. Our raw materials are sourced from the EU in large parent reels and transported using sea freight. Sourcing in bulk and transporting via sea rather than air or land cuts down our impact on the environment.
The rest of the packaging is made from materials sourced from the UK. The materials are then converted and made into the finished product in the UK.
When choosing to shop greener so we can keep our oceans bluer, it is easy to drown in the sea of information and greenwashing! But which eco-friendly product is best?
Bamboo – although quite a hardy plant, bamboo grows best in warm, moist climates. It’s for this reason over one-third of the world’s bamboo is grown in China. Bamboo is shipped in converted format which means you ship less than half compared to our method of shipping parent reels of virgin cellulose into the UK. The claims surrounding bamboo toilet roll start to unravel when you realise it’s racked up some miles being transported to the UK.
Recycled – you can get FSC® certification for recycled paper as long as the paper is fully traceable back to FSC® certified sources. Usually, recycled paper uses a broad mix of paper making the FSC claim extremely difficult. Using these various paper waste streams also means the manufacturing process uses loads more energy, and means the finished product is inconsistent which can feel like rough paper and look grey in appearance.
FSC® certified material – is what we make our Oceans loo roll from and is virgin cellulose material which gives our toilet roll its super softness and strength. It is sustainably sourced from Europe in large parent reels – so less miles travelled before we make our lovely loo roll right here in the UK. The Oceans distribution agent who sends out our toilet roll to our customers is also less than five miles from our manufacturing facility, so even fewer miles travelled before it reaches your door!
Our toilet paper is free from bleach. Although we are not hypoallergenic certified, it is something we are looking into. If you wanted to try our Oceans Toilet Tissue, we would recommend purchasing our one-off order of 27 rolls and if you do have any issues we would be happy to refund the cost of the product.

Obviously this depends on whether you are a toilet paper scruncher, folder or hand wrapper, it depends on whether you are a one-square wonder (hats off to you people) or prefer a little more padding for your bottom. It also depends on whether you are a social butterfly and have more guests to accommodate or if your home is your private sanctum – we can only give you a general rule of bum!
Small households (1-3 people) use an average of 254 rolls a year – that’s the 27 pack every 6 weeks, or the 45 pack every 8 weeks.
Larger households (4 people+) use an average of 508 rolls a year – that’s the 27 pack twice per month, or the 45 pack once per month.
If you are a Friends of Oceans regular subscriber, you have full control to edit your settings to suit your household and can select anything between 1-6 weeks or months. Many of our Friends set up their subscription and edit it further down the line once they have a feel for the swing of the household. You even have flexibility to pause your subscription if you are going on holiday! How cool is that? We’ve thought of everything!
Each toilet roll has 180 sheets of 3-ply paper and a roll length of 21.6m! That’s a lot of winding back up if your cat gets hold of it! So, a 27-roll pack has 4,860 sheets and a 45-roll pack has 8,100 sheets. Compared to other toilet roll brands, Oceans Toilet Tissue has a larger sheet size of 120x100mm.
Yes our toilet roll is safe for septic tanks and composting toilets. The toilet paper is made from virgin pulp cellulose – a clean, wood-based raw material – so it breaks down and disintegrates easily in your septic tank and any composting toilet.
