Have You Used a Sustainable Product Today?

If you used a washroom, stopped for coffee or grabbed a bite to eat somewhere, there's a good chance you used a sustainable product from Georgia-Pacific Professional. That's because we make all kinds of products people use every day, and we work hard to minimize their environmental impact and make them as useful as possible. From hygienic paper towel and bath tissue products, to recycled cups and napkins, to cutlery dispensers that help reduce waste.


We call the environmental part of our sustainability platform Green by Design®. It's not just a catchy title. It's a way of thinking and working that leads to products and practices that are environmentally and socially responsible as well as economically sound. In other words, sustainable.

People want sustainable products more than ever before. That's good for customers and business, and it's good for the planet. But being sustainable is more than making products from recycled fiber. It's more than designing dispensers that help reduce waste. It's about creating products that serve a useful function for society - that make sense economically and are practical for today's fast-paced world.

Sure, there are a lot of companies jumping on the environmental bandwagon these days, but we've been improving and promoting sustainability for decades.

Of course, this is just the abridged version of our sustainability story. For more about our products, third-party certifications and the latest sustainability news, check out the rest of our site.
