GP Cellulose to support UNICEF in rural China
Published October 23, 2013
GP Cellulose announced it is supporting UNICEF's water, sanitation and hygiene programs in China through an initiative called Green Hand Project, which will help improve conditions in schools for approximately 15,000 children. GP Cellulose will make a donation of $1 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF for every metric ton of Golden Isles fluff pulp purchased from Oct. 15, 2013 – Oct. 15, 2015. All funds generated through the Green Hand Project will go to support water and sanitation programs in Chinese schools, helping UNICEF make schools healthy and safe for children. Nearly 500 million people still live without adequate sanitation facilities in China. That is almost half of China’s population. This issue is especially urgent in China’s schools.
