The Sugar Cane Paper Company is debuting its bagasse-made napkins, toilet paper, tissue, and paper towels.
Bagasse is the fibrous residue left over in the sugar-making process after the sugar cane has been crushed and the sugar extracted.
“The environmental community has brought consumer awareness and demand for FSC-defined recycled paper light years from just five years ago. Recycling 54 million tons of paper means that we have saved a lot of trees. But, is our recycling rate high enough? Probably not,” says Sugar Cane Paper Company President, Mark Harrison.
“Treeless paper is the next big step in meeting consumer demand for preserving the world’s forest resources,” Harrison adds.
