100% recycled paper (minimum 80% post-consumer)
Whitened without chlorine bleach
Attractive white box with green dots design to match any decor
I love the idea of using recycled paper products, but I
have to be honest: this facial tissue is not as soft as many regular
tissue products. I have decided it's fine for regular day-to-day use,
but when I get sick with a runny nose, I am a big baby and have to use
one of those cushioned tissues with added aloe or lotion. So this is
what I do: my bathrooms and kitchen are all stocked with Seventh
Generation recycled facial tissue, but when a cold hits, I pull Puffs
with Lotion out of the linen closet until my cold is gone. Hopefully
Seventh Generation will come out with a lotionized-version soon so I
don't have to compromise my eco-friendliness when I get sick!

every household in the U.S. replaced just one box of 85 sheet virgin
fiber facial tissues with 100% recycled ones, we could save:
772,000 cubic feet of landfill space, equal to 1,100 full garbage trucks,
108 million gallons of water, a year's supply for 850 families of four,
and avoid 18,000 pounds of chlorinated pollution!
