The Issue With Tissue

On This Green Earth, Nell Larson and guest host Katy Wang talk sustainable tissue.

Tissue maker start-ups disrupted the marketplace in the last year by offering consumers greater choices of new, more sustainable brands, according to an updated ranking of tissue products.

In contrast, some larger tissue companies remain stuck in the past, rejecting demands from consumers and shareholders to end their reliance on climate-critical forests like the Canadian Boreal, for the ultimate one-time-use product made from trees: toilet paper.

They speak with Shelley Vinyard from NRDC about their report: Issue With Tissue 3.0, and why the nations largest tissue makers are still largely failing to offer sustainably made products that don’t come from clearcut forests.
