by Lawton Brothers | Jan 30, 2020

Before making decisions on buying new equipment or changing who you source your healthcare facility’s food from, you make sure to have a certified individual’s opinion on both matters. So, why shouldn’t you go to someone you trust for your paper products? 

At Lawton Brothers, we feel that paper products are equally important as other aspects of your business, such as the machinery you buy and the food you serve. That’s why we offer Tork® paper products.

 ABOUT TORK® PRODUCTS & ITS VERIFICATION 

Tork® is one of the leading sustainable workplace hygiene companies in the world. Tork® offers various products ranging from paper towels, wipes and cloths to napkins, and is certified by EcoLogo®, Green Seal™ and Biodegradable Products Institute™ (BPI).

 The EcoLogo® verification is a voluntary but rigorous certification process. This certification process indicates that a product or multiple products have undergone testing and auditing to prove it is compliant with environmental standards categories such as materials, energy, product performance and more. Through this verification, and Tork®’s mission of environmental stewardship, its products have a reduced impact on the environment. 

Green Seal is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting the manufacturing, purchase and use of environmentally responsible products. Its certification focuses on products like bathroom tissue, paper towels and napkins, and places importance on lifecycle issues regarding paper products. From manufacturing to use, Green Seal™ wants to ensure that companies think about the environmental impact its product(s) will have. 

In 2011, Tork® announced that their Universal and Advanced Tork® napkins were certified compostable by BPI™. This means that the napkins can be easily disposed of in a composting facility throughout North America and will quickly biodegrade, benefiting any company whose intent is to decrease its carbon footprint.
