K-C Professional Introduces WypAll Wipers with 40% Post-Consumer Recycled Fiber

November 3, 2010

Entire product life cycled designed to reduce environmental impacts.

Kimberly-Clark Professional has launched a new generation of environmentally responsible disposable wipers under the WypAll brand. Available as WypAll X60, WypAll L40, and WypAll L30 Wipers, the new WypAll 40% recycled fiber wipers are manufactured using 40% post-consumer recycled fiber, from sources including recycled cardboard boxes (seven are recycled to make one Jumbo Roll of WypAll X60) and recycled office paper (a ream is recycled to make one Jumbo Roll of WypAll L40).

The wipers contain up to 35% more sheets than standard packaging and use up to 100% recycled fiber in the product packaging.

“In designing and manufacturing these new environmentally responsible wipers, we examined the entire life cycle of the product. That includes everything from product design and the raw materials used, to how the product is manufactured, transported to customers and users, and eventually used and disposed of,” said Ron Cox, category manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional. “We were able to identify ways to reduce the use and environmental impact of resources at every stage, in keeping with our Reduce Today, Respect Tomorrow program.”
