America’s biggest tissue manufacturer, P&G, flunked in sustainability for the second year in a row according to our coalition partner NRDC’s 2020 tissue scorecard. The company’s failing grade is no surprise, as it refuse to stop making tissue products from 100% virgin fiber from the Canadian boreal forest – one of the largest carbon sinks left on the planet. To make matters even worse, some of the pulp used in Charmin comes directly from endangered boreal caribou habitat.
The Canadian boreal forest captures nearly twice as much carbon as is contained in all the world’s recoverable oil reserves – making a huge resource in tackling climate change. But the rapid logging and clearcutting (over one million acres each year, in part to meet the tissue industry’s demands) is reducing the forest’s ability to store carbon.
Send a message directly to P&G top executives to urge them to stop using 100% virgin fiber from the Canadian boreal forest.
