Revision of Sanitary Paper Products Standard

September 19, 2010

The revision of the final draft of Green Seal Inc.''s Standard for Sanitary Paper Products (GS-1), is now out for ballot.

This edition combines the previous Green Seal Standard for Tissue Paper (GS-1, Second Edition, February 12, 1992) and Standard Paper Towels and Paper Napkins (GS-9, First Edition, January 27, 1993), and covers products for both institutional and retail markets.

The revision provides a comprehensive, easy-to-use standard that addresses the life cycle issues of sanitary paper products.
