Description

You can find out more about Green Forest and our products on our website (www.greenforestpaper.com). In 2005, Planet Inc. (www.planetinc.com) bought and rescued the Green Forest brand from a major international paper company. One year later we launched all new Green Forest products with upgraded environmental characteristics and new packaging.

Green Forest products are available at selected grocery and natural product stores, and various online retailers like Amazon.com or drugstore.com.

Green Forest product attributes:

Soft & Absorbent - Green Forest paper is very soft and absorbent. In fact, our bath tissue is the softest and most comfortable of the recycled brands! In the past, recycled bath tissue often was scratchy or rough. But now all it takes is one touch and you’ll know – Green Forest is soft and gentle. You can save your skin and the earth at the same time.

Made from 100% recycled paper - We use 100% recycled paper, not trees to make Green Forest paper products. This helps conserve our forests, and keeps a large amount of reusable paper from ending up in our already overflowing landfills. According to the US Department of energy (Energy Information Administration), a ton of paper made from recycled fibers instead of virgin fibers conserves 7,000 gallons of water, 17-31 trees, 4,000 KWh of electricity, and 60 pounds of air pollutants.(www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/saving/recycling/solidwaste/paperandglass.html#savingenergy).

Contains minimum 90% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content - PCR is paper recycled from homes and offices that otherwise would clog our landfills or be burned in waste incinerators. Green Forest has the highest PCR content among widely distributed green brands of household paper products (see the Greenpeace “Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide" http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/campaigns/forests/tissue-guide/).

Whitened without using chlorine - Green Forest products are whitened without chlorine bleach. The use of chlorine can release dangerous toxins into the environment, toxins that have been linked to cancers and other health problems. In addition, paper mills that use chlorine to whiten their paper often use significantly more water during the manufacturing process.

Safe for use in septic systems - Recycled paper has shorter fibers than virgin (non-recycled) paper products. Because of this,Green Forest recycled paper degrades and breaks apart faster in septic systems and pipes, which reduces the chances of clogging.

We are also the makers of Planet -- environmentally friendly cleaning products that work! Visit our Green Pages listing or website (www.planetinc.com) to learn more.
