Kruger Products and Earth Day Canada Officially Partner to Promote Practical Sustainability Solutions

Kruger Products is proud to work with a powerful catalyst effecting positive and lasting change for the environment

Submitted by Kruger Products L.P.

Kruger Products and Earth Day Canada have united efforts through an official partnership to educate Canadians about their role in protecting our environment and bringing about meaningful changes. Kruger Products, Canada’s leading manufacturer of quality tissue products for the consumer and away-from-home markets, is a committed steward of our environment. Through this new partnership, the company will develop innovative ways to promote the sustainability solutions and urge Canadians to consider their impacts on the environment by making practical changes.

“We value dedicated and passionate partners like Kruger Products because they allow us to reach a huge number of Canadians with these important messages,” said Jed Goldberg, President, Earth Day Canada. “Our goal is to ensure that Canadians are well-informed about the products they use, whether in an office building, a public facility, at home or at school, and how their decisions impact the environment and health of their families and communities. We are proud to work with Kruger Products in sharing this message with all Canadians.”

“Our partnership with Earth Day Canada is positive step forward along our sustainability journey,” said Steven Sage, Corporate Director, Sustainability & Innovation, Kruger Products. “We know that Canadians care about making choices that benefit the environment, but there is a lot of confusion and misinformation about what constitutes a green product. This partnership is a powerful opportunity for us to work together and provide clarity that can effect real change.”

Kruger Products is Canada’s leading manufacturer of quality tissue products for the consumer and away-from-home markets. This partnership is a new extension of Sustainability 2015, Kruger Products’ five-year sustainable development plan to reduce its impact on the environment. Working with Earth Day Canada is another demonstration of the company’s commitment to leading industry towards a sustainable future and exemplifies how business can make a profound impact on the environment.
