Good News KLEENEX pulls out of native forest

Kimberly-Clark (50% owned by Amcor) have stated that they have ceased using native forest woodchips from Victoria’s Central Highlands in their tissues and toilet paper. This was after a three year consumer campaign by Environment Victoria.

Native forest woodchips will be substituted with plantation eucalypts from the Strzelecki Ranges and from South Australia.

Native forest fibre for Kimberly-Clark’s brands Kleenex and Wondersoft was also sourced from the Otways Ranges, until a short sharp campaign by Otways Ranges Environment Network.
