Where is all of this made?

After a lot (and we mean A LOT) of thoughtful consideration, we’ve proudly set up our manufacturing operations in China. There’s a bit of a misconception about production in China, which we think is important to address. We work closely with our producers to ensure standards and processes we’re happy with, plus we found that China offered a lot of wonderful benefits:

  • We can use paper wrappers and recycled cardboard boxes rather than plastic! We couldn’t find an Australian producer that would let us do this with varied designs for our wrappers.
  • We have access to a large pool of local, raw materials– both post-consumer waste paper and bamboo (neither of which is readily available in Australia). By using China's local materials, we avoid importing from overseas.
  • We can cut the cost of operations, passing on those savings to our customers. Australian toilet tissue manufacturers are few and far between, and they all have their own brands. We’d be asking one of our competitors to make our products!

How is all of this shipped?

AU EUUKUSA

For our Australian operations, we sea freight containers of stock into seven ports across the country that are closest to our warehouses, and distribute from there. We compared sea miles vs road miles, and found that road emissions are more intensive (like, 10x more. Woah!) than those used with sea freight. So by shipping to several ports across the country we keep the transport much lower than if we had one manufacturing centre in Australia and had to ship out across the country from there.

Did you know?

All of our shipping (from the factory all the way to you) is now completely carbon neutral.

All of these factors ensure we are building a sustainable business model that delivers quality and environmentally responsible products at competitive prices. This allows us to focus on our greater mission: building toilets for those who need them!
