PHILADELPHIA — SCA Tissue has earned Green Seal™ certification on 15 of its products, making Tork® the largest Away From Home sanitary paper product brand in North America to earn certification by both Green Seal and by EcoLogoCM
, according to a press release
Because it uses only 100 percent recycled paper to manufacture its Tork products, SCA Tissue recycles 750,000 tons of paper annually, of which 400,000 tons are post-consumer, the release stated.
Joseph Russo, SCA Tissue vice president of sales and distribution U.S. and Canada, said: "Because a significant number of our customers and consumers either specify Green Seal certification for purchase of cleaning and sanitary paper products or use Green Seal standards as a model in setting their own environmental criteria for products, the dual certification of Green Seal and EcoLogo will create additional sales opportunities for our distributor partners."
Headquartered in Philadelphia, SCA Tissue has manufacturing and office facilities in Wisconsin, Alabama, Arizona and Upstate New York

In 2007, SCA was named the second most environmentally responsible company in the world by The Independent, a major British newspaper
