Greenpeace Releases Latest Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide
Greenpeace has released its latest Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide, recommending brands like Green Forest, Seventh Generation and 365.
The group says the recommended brands aren’t eliminating ancient forests and don’t use toxic chlorine compounds. Whereas Kimberly-Clark products ranked low on the guide because the company is “literally wiping away ancient forests to make their disposable products,” writes mikeg on Greenpeace’s blog.
Seventh Generation uses 100 percent recycled and 80 percent post-consumer content to produce its products. The company also uses chlorine-free manufacturing processes that prevent the release of toxic dioxins.
Some retailers have come under fire for promoting dubious toilet paper products as environmentally friendly. Australia’s Woolworths was criticized for its Select brand of toilet paper, which it claimed to be certified environmentally, socially and economically responsible.
