SWALMEN, The Netherlands, October 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
World first for the Netherlands
Satino Black - Dutch company Van Houtum's sustainable brand - scores a world first by launching Cradle to Cradle certified dispensers. The dispensers are made from recycled plastic and complete the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certified Satino Black product line, which consists of toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, foam soap, alcohol gel and toilet seat cleaner.
Among other benefits, the Cradle to Cradle certificate guarantees that the dispensers are free of harmful chemicals and therefore suitable for technical closed-loop recycling: the plastic can be re-used infinitely without loss of inherent value. Furthermore the use of 100% green electricity guarantees CO2 neutrality.
With this world first, Van Houtum once again confirms its reputation as a leader in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Van Houtum's pioneering paper mill has produced the world's first and only C2C certified hygienic paper since 2010. This high-quality paper for toilet rolls and paper towels is made from 100% recycled paper and also carries the FSC recycled and European Eco-label hallmarks. The paper is produced in a completely CO2 neutral process.
