We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with leading sustainable toilet roll company, The Cheeky Panda, to help raise both awareness of the important role that whales and dolphins play in saving the planet, and vital funds to support WDC’s efforts to protect these amazing creatures.
The Cheeky Panda, who recently won Product of the Year 2020 for their baby wipes, is donating an amazing £10,000 towards our conservation work, including our Green Whale programme, and for the next year, you can also choose to donate to WDC at checkout when buying any of The Cheeky Panda products - bringing the fight to save whales and dolphins right into your bathroom!
With their amazing range of plastic-free products, The Cheeky Panda is helping to keep the ocean clean while also combating climate change by saving hundreds of thousands of trees through their use of ultra-sustainable bamboo in their products. Through this partnership, we are bringing together two of our biggest allies in fighting climate change - trees and whales. Whales play a hugely important role in helping us tackle climate change, and in sustaining productive marine ecosystems – a concept we are calling The Green Whale.
WDC’s Sally Ward commented: “Climate change is a fundamental threat to the health and survival of all whales, dolphins and porpoises. As well as being biodegradable, the bamboo used in The Cheeky Panda products grows 30 times faster than trees, absorbs 35% more carbon and releases 30% more oxygen. Bamboo toilet tissue, kitchen towel and facial tissue products are available from their website in plastic free packaging and, while 90% of wipes contain plastic, The Cheeky Panda wipes contain no plastic at all and are biodegradable! This is great news for whales and dolphins as, sadly, 69 of the 90 whale and dolphin species are reported to have been affected by ocean plastics. WDC’s partnership with The Cheeky Panda is helping us tackle two of the biggest threats to the survival of whales and dolphins and we are excited to be able to share this great new collaboration with our supporters”.
Chris Forbes, Co-Founder of The Cheeky Panda says: “The Cheeky Panda is a B Corp founded on sustainability, however we don’t want to just limit it to life on land and protecting forests, all the ecosystems are connected and life in water, particularly protecting whales and dolphins, is something myself and our team is passionate about. It fits so well with our values and goals and we are delighted to be a corporate partner and help protect these wonderful creatures.”
