New recycled toilet paper debuted

April 21, 2009
WASHINGTON — In honor of the upcoming Earth Day, two paper manufacturers debuted their new recycled toilet paper offerings, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Marcal Small Steps, a 100 percent recycled toilet paper, was installed in New York''s Times Square last week surrounded by 34 trees the company says could be saved a year if an average family switched to recycled paper products, the story stated.
Kimberly-Clark released its Scott Naturals line that includes a toilet paper incorporating 40 percent recycled material with 60 percent virgin fiber, the story noted.
Though Kimberly-Clark clearly states that its Naturals line fuses both recycled and virgin content, the environmental group Greenpeace is calling the Scott Naturals'' debut "greenwashing," the story added.
According to the story, only about 1 to 2 percent of American households use recycled paper products.
