Paper producer Van Houtum introduced the most environmentally friendly toilet paper in the world at the ISSA Interclean in the RAI Amsterdam. Satino Black is the only truly CO2-neutral toilet paper made with 100% recycled paper and an environmentally friendly production process, and yet it is just as soft and white as normal toilet paper.
“Many users do not know that for the largest part toilet paper is still made of trees which are chopped down for that specific reason. That is totally unnecessary. That’s why we manufacture Satino Black from 100% recycled paper” says Henk van Houtum, director of Van Houtum. “In addition, we have developed a new production process during the last 2 1/2 years to replace all the harmful chemicals with biologically degradable raw materials and additives.”
“Black is the new green,” says Nick op den Buijsch, Concept Manager of Socially Responsible Entrepreneurship at Van Houtum. “Consumers, companies and governments worldwide are demanding ever more stringent product requirements while at the same time they want to make a contribution to the improvement of the environment”. Satino Black has been developed to get a step closer to the set environmental objectives with one simple act. This makes it possible for everyone to make a contribution to breaking through the unnecessary exhaustion of the natural resources on our planet. Green is cool with Black.”
The water and energy consumption for the production of Satino Black are already the lowest in the world in the market segment. CO2 neutrality is guaranteed as a result of the utilization of 100% green energy. Cradle to Cradle guarantees that chemicals for the production of Satino Black are converted to natural and biologically degradable auxiliary agents. It is harmless for humans as well as the environment.
