The Canada-based paper company Cascades Tissue Group has extended its line of Cascades Moka tissue products with the launch of the company’s first-ever, unbleached, 100 percent recycled facial tissue.

Cascades says its new Moka facial tissue is made of a pulp mix composed of 100 percent recycled fiber, 80 percent of which is post-consumer material, including 20 percent recovered old corrugated containers. The company adds that the production of the new line also is offset with 100 percent Green-e-certified renewable wind electricity and releases a minimum of 30 percent less greenhouse gas than what is used in traditional white recycled tissues. Cascades Moka also holds certification with EcoLogo, Green Seal and the Chlorine Free Products Association.

"Based on the success of the Cascades Moka bathroom tissue, we believe people will adopt this product unique to Cascades, if color is the only thing they're giving up," says Suzanne Blanchet, Cascades Tissue Group president and CEO.
