Whether you're planning a shopping trip or already at the store, the new iPhone App version of Greenpeace's Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide makes it quick and easy to determine which paper products are easy on the Earth and which are not. The app, created for Greenpeace by 3rd Whale and available now for both the iPhone and the iPod Touch, recommends the greenest toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, and paper napkins, so consumers can be sure they aren't flushing ancient forests down the drain.
Our team of experts evaluated over 100 products and gave the "Recommended" rating only to those brands that: contain 100% overall recycled content; contain at least 50% post-consumer recycled content; and are bleached without toxic chlorine compounds. The app also has categories for those products that "Could do better" and those that you are advised to "Avoid."
"Tissue products made from recycled content help to reduce our impact on ancient forests, protecting forest ecosystems and wildlife habitat," said Greenpeace Forest Campaigner Lindsey Allen. "Customers who download the iPhone or Android version of the Greenpeace Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide can compare brands available at their local grocery store to find which brands are most environmentally sustainable. For those interested in protecting ancient forests from clearcutting and supporting truly sustainable companies, this application makes informed decision making even more convenient."
