friendlygreen.org Introduces Green Alternatives to Tissue Paper Products

Dec 06, 2008

EAST WINDSOR, CT � December 2008 � friendlygreen.org, a resource created to offer commercial clients alternatives in sustainable, green technologies, and operational efficiency enhancements, announces green alternatives to tissue paper products.

Paper production and consumption worldwide have serious negative impacts. The pulp and paper industry, which includes tissue product manufacturers, is among the world's largest generators of

toxic air, water pollutants and waste products. It is the third largest generator of global warming emissions, and those emissions are projected to increase 100 percent by 2020. This industry is the world's largest user of fresh water, and is among the largest users of energy. It destroys natural forests that are essential for clean air and water, the atmosphere's chemistry, wildlife habitat, indigenous culture, spiritual inspiration and recreation. In North America, the manufacture of tissue products has particularly dire environmental and social consequences. Intact, old growth and other ecologically important forests are being cleared to produce the pulp that goes into tissue products.

Instead of using trees harvested from ancient forests, tissue paper products can be made

from post-consumer recycled materials or agricultural waste. Companies like Cascades,

Seventh Generation, Atlantic Packaging and Earth Friendly Products are leading the way in

manufacturing forest-friendly tissue products with highly recycled contents.

friendlygreen.org was formed to offer commercial clients alternatives in sustainable, green technologies, and operational efficiency enhancements. The online resource offers links to articles and Web sites that can educate visitors about the impact on the environment that everyday products have on the planet.
