Greenpeace Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide

Did you know that Americans could save more than 400,000 trees if each family replaced just one roll of virgin toilet paper in their home with a roll of recycled toilet paper?

Recycled tissue products help protect ancient forests, clean water, and wildlife habitat. Simply put, it’s easier on the Earth to make tissues from paper instead of trees. And now you can find tissues and other paper products that are gentle on the Earth with the Greenpeace Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide iPhone app! There are lots of brands of paper products to choose from. The Greenpeace Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide makes it quick and easy to find out which brands of facial tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, and napkins are truly green and which should be avoided. Greenpeace’s experts have carefully evaluated over 100 brands and recommended those that: contain 100% overall recycled content; contain at least 50% post-consumer recycled content; and are bleached without toxic chlorine compounds.

When you’re doing your grocery shopping or just stopping by the corner store to grab a roll of toilet paper, this app can help you make an informed decision as both a consumer and someone concerned about the world’s ancient forests.
