You may remember these guys from Dragon’s Den. While the product is not made in Canada, considering these are bamboo-based paper products I’m not sure that they could be. However, the products themselves are so interesting, they are worthy of inclusion.

The premise of True Earth Paper Company is that bamboo-based paper products cause far less environment damage than cutting down a tree. The carbon footprint is much smaller, and bamboo is plentiful (no, they don’t use the bamboo that pandas eat).
