Georgia-Pacific Professional today announced EcoLogo certification of a broad selection of the company’s tissue, towel, and napkin products. This designation by the EcoLogo Program, a third-party environmental certification organization, is another building block in Georgia-Pacific Professional’s Green By Design program.

The facilities that manufacture Georgia-Pacific Professional’s EcoLogo certified products underwent a rigorous independent audit as part of the participation in the program. Elements of the audit included natural resource consumption, energy consumption, effluent quality, and solid waste from the facility.

The EcoLogo program compares products and services with others in the same category, develops rigorous and scientifically relevant criteria, and awards the EcoLogo certification to those that are environmentally preferable.
