SCA, the maker of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products, announced that it will be a proud product supplier for Lambeau Field, providing the legendary football stadium with towel, tissue, and napkin products and dispensers beginning with the 2013 NFL season.
At Lambeau Field, SCA will provide Tork brand bath tissue, paper towels, and napkins. The sustainable and hygienic products will be located in restrooms and concession areas throughout the stadium.
“We are honored to partner with Lambeau Field and the Green Bay Packers, and by extension, to be a partner with some of the best fans in football,” says Don Lewis, president, SCA Americas. “For more than 80 years, SCA has taken its environmental stewardship seriously, and we want to partner with organizations like the Green Bay Packers that also have a strong desire to become a greener organization. We look forward to helping create a greener Lambeau Field and building a long and beneficial relationship with one of the NFL’s most storied franchises.”
Tork products are made in four manufacturing facilities across North America, including Neenah/Menasha – which employs more than 900 Northeast Wisconsin employees.
In addition to supplying Tork products at Lambeau Field, SCA will also be a co-sponsor for the Green Bay Packers “First Downs for Trees” program, which provides trees to be planted for every Packers first down reached during the NFL regular season.
“SCA’s Tork products align with our focus on efficient and sustainable practices at Lambeau Field,” says Ted Eisenreich, Packers director of facility operations. “We are happy to name them as a product supplier and look forward to a green and clean future together.”
SCA’s Tork products are found in professional and collegiate stadiums across the country, providing sustainable solutions that improve hygiene and reduce waste. For example, the Tork Xpressnap dispensing system provides one-at-a-time napkin dispensing so fans take only the napkins they need, reducing paper waste by at least 25 percent.
At Lambeau Field, fans entering the restrooms will experience the Tork brand of products, including the Elevation Hand Towel Tissue and Soap systems, as well as the Exit Door Waste Bin. All Tork products are designed to enhance hygiene, sustainability, cost savings, and image.
In Northeast Wisconsin, SCA’s commitment to sustainability and community has led to more than $53,000 in environmental grants to local schools since 2007. Additionally, the company has donated employee time and more than $100,000 to several local parks to plant trees, build new playgrounds, improve outdoor facilities, and sponsor nature events.
