You might be greener than you think

Many companies realize the value in using recycled and recyclable materials in their products. Everyday items, like the paper towel, tissue and even toilet paper are now more environmentally friendly than ever, and you are already using them in your everyday life.

Cascades Away-from-Home category aligns under the company’s Tissue Group division, which is the category leader in Canada and fifth largest producer in the United States. Cascades converts and markets tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fiber. In 2015, Cascades used 6.5X less water than its industry. The liters of water the company saved in that year alone are equivalent to the amount of water needed for 3,027,721 people to take a 10 minutes shower every day for an entire year.

By using Cascades paper products, consumers mindlessly make green choices.
