Using Emerald brand facial tissues means you'll be environmentally responsible without compromising quality or price. Emerald is made with Bagasse, and readily renewable trees such as Eucalyptus. The tissues are 100% biodegradable and bleached using hydrogen peroxide, a safe alternative to chlorine bleach which is what is traditionally used for whitening. No virgin fiber is used in its production.
Bagasse is a fibrous residue remaining after sugar cane stalks are
crushed to extract their juice, and is currently used as a renewable resource in the manufacture of pulp and paper products and building materials. After the sugar cane is juiced, the use of the fiber waste provides a value-added product from what is generally considered a waste product. When sugar cane fiber is turned into products normally made from paper, an additional benefit is the elimination of the pollution from the normal burning of the pulp.
Sugar cane fiber is similar to any other fibrous garden waste that
readily composts, and normally biodegrades within 30-90 days. For single-use products, it provides an environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional paper disposables.
Sugarcane is one of the greatest carbon sinks around. It uses more C02 to grow then most plants or trees. The processing into sugar is almost a wash carbon-wise based on what the cane uses in its growth cycle vs. processing at the sugar mill. And it regenerates by itself from its own roots, reducing carbon use to plant, til, no seeds, and for the most part is GMO free to boot.
