12 Companies Offering Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Products

(ref: Greenpeace Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide, greenpeace.org)

Recycled tissue products help protect ancient forests, clean water, and wildlife habitat and it’s easier on the Earth to make tissues from paper instead of trees.

Greenpeace created a product guide ranking various tissue products based on three criteria:

  1. 100% recycled content
  2. At least 50% post-consumer recycled content
  3. Bleached without toxic chlorine compounds

Green Forest, 365, Earth Friendly, April Soft, Atlantic, Cascades, Natural Value, Seventh Generation, Fiesta/Fiesta Green, Trader Joe’s, Marcal Small Steps, and CVS Earth Essentials are companies producing at least one product meeting these three criteria. Here’s the breakdown of these companies by product category.
