Smart Shopping to Tissue Products

Nowadays, forests around the world are being destroyed to make tissue products, however you can help stop this terrible action by pressing producers to use recycled content and clean manufacturing processes.

Tips: Making Smart Shopping Decisions To Save Forests
1. Buy paper products with recycled content – especially post-consumer fibers.
Look for high recycled content products, post-consumer fibers are recovered from paper that was previously used by consumers.

2. Buy paper products made with clean, safe process.
Tissue products are bleached to make them whiter and brighter(they put more chlorine in bleached processes). Look for products labeled otally chlorine-free (TCF) or processed chlorine-free (PCF). In some cases, elemental chlorine-free (ECF) may be acceptable.

3. Tell tissue manufacturers to stop using virgin wood for throwaway products.
Tell the brand company to use more recycle fibers, if that brand doesn’t have any recycled content.

Saving forests  also helps reduce global warming pollution.
