Cascades Tissue Group has achieved Green Seal Standard, GS-1, re-certification of sanitary paper products for its entire line of Cascades® and North River® away-from-home towel and tissue products.
The Green Seal GS-1 standard sets the environmental, health, and social requirements for sanitary paper products and comprehensively addresses environmental life-cycle issues spanning raw materials, manufacturing, packaging and product use and performance.
With this latest development, Cascades now possesses the largest offering of Green Seal-certified towel and tissue products throughout North America today. The re-certification encompasses 114 branded products, all made from 100 percent recycled fiber.
“Cascades has offered Green Seal-certified paper towels and tissue since 2005,” said Dr. Arthur Weissman, president and CEO of Green Seal. “In achieving certification to the revised GS-1 standard, the North River and Cascades products continue to represent leadership in sustainability in this industry.”
Cascades Tissue Group, a division of Cascades, ULC, is the fourth largest manufacturer of tissue paper in North America.
