Some background on tissue paper producers

In light of Greenpeace stepping up their campaign on Kleenex, here is some useful background material.

WWF in Europe have been monitoring and reporting on the big toilet/hygiene products producers.

Toilet paper must get tougher

Toilet tissue manufacturers are failing to sell enough environmentally friendly products in the UK.

New research ranking the five 'giant' tissue manufacturers that make up 75 per cent of the European market - Georgia-Pacific, Kimberly-Clark, Metsa Tissue, Procter & Gamble and SCA Tissue - shows that whilst the companies have improved their overall environmental performance they need to make a greater effort to reduce the impact of their products on the world's forests.
And in the US, NRDC (Natrual Resources Defense Council) published this guide to tissue products.

Both are great resources for consumers.
