Buying products made from recycled paper reduces the need for virgin wood pulp, meaning fewer trees are cut down. In fact, if every household in America replaced just one package each of conventional toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and tissues with recycled products, we could save nearly 10 million trees!
Using recycled paper also helps reduce water and energy use and saves landfill space for items that cannot be recycled. One ton of paper made from recycled rather than virgin fibers conserves 7,000 gallons of water, about 25 trees, 4,000 KWh of electricity, and 60 pounds of air pollutants! That’s great news for animal and plant habitats, climate change, and human health and wellbeing.
The following products (including toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and facial tissue), are all made from 100% recycled paper, and manufactured without the use of dyes, fragrances, or chlorine bleach. So give them a try and feel great about all the resources you’re helping to conserve!
