Real Price of Kleenex

Speak up on the real price of Kleenex!

Tell Kimberly-Clark, makers of Kleenex, to use recycled content material, not ancient trees!

Did you know that the price of disposable paper products such as Kleenex, Scott, and Cottonelle includes the destruction of an acre of ancient trees every 12.9 seconds?

Kimberly-Clark, maker of these products, refuses to use recycled paper even though they have the means to do so. Sign this petition to tell Kimberly-Clark to use post-consumer recycled content in their products!

Kimberly-Clark doesn’t want you to know that they use 3.3 million tons of virgin fiber annually to make their consumer products, which will ultimately end up in a landfill. Act now! Go to:

The virgin fiber comes from ancient trees in the Boreal Forest. This chain of trees, spanning the far Northern latitudes, is one of the largest ecosystems on the planet and one of the last great ancient
forests we have. Caribou, Lynx, Black Bear, Moose, Timber Wolf, over 200 bird species, and Wood Bison all make their homes here.

Act today! Tell Kimberly-Clark to stop blowing their noses on ancient forests! Sign this petition to urge Kimberly-Clark to use post-consumer recycled content in their products before they destroy every remaining tree.
