FAQs

Trees are the typical source of the virgin fiber used in the tissue making process. Virgin wood fibre toilet tissue and paper towels are manufactured without the use of any recycled or alternative fibers.

However, virgin fibers can be sourced from agricultural by–products and alternative fibers like the sugarcane and bamboo.

‘Mix’ or ‘Mixed Sources’ means products manufactured with a combination of FSC-certified virgin fibre (from FSC-certified forests), controlled sources and/or recycled wood or fibre.

FSC controlled wood standards require that the following sources of wood to be excluded in the product:

  • Illegally harvested wood
  • Wood harvested that violates traditional and civil right
  • Wood harvested in forests with high conservation values (areas particularly worthy of protection)
  • Wood harvested from areas where genetically modified trees are planted

As a consumer, you can be assured that ‘FSC® Mix’ products are 100% compliant with standards that ensure responsible practices are maintained throughout.

A certified FSC recycled product means that a minimum of 85% of the wood fiber content is from post-consumer sources, with a maximum of 15% coming from post-industrial sources.

A consumer product that has completed its life cycle, would otherwise have been disposed of as landfill waste has made it back to the recycling stream to be integrated into new products.

With recycling, a pulp facility de-inks and cleanses that waste paper to produce usable high quality pulp. That pulp is used in place of traditional wood pulp, sent through the manufacturing process and the paper is re-born as 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper. Without recycling process, these waste paper content would go straight into a landfill.

We only work with and source from ISO certified (ISO 9001 and ISO 14001) suppliers whose material sources are made from non-controversial, responsibly managed forests.

Sourcing from non-controversial suppliers with responsible corporate culture ensure that no illegal logging or deforestation takes place at the source.
