Kleenex® exists to help us find strength in everyday moments. Let’s face it - Life is messy. Be ready for it. At Kleenex®, we want you to feel prepared to face any moment. That is why it’s important that we have Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) products to help ensure responsible fiber sourcing and forest protection for today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
Take care of our forests to take care of you.
FSC® ensure that forests are responsibly souced. In 2011, we became the first U.S. tissue maker to offer FSC® consumer tissue products.
It is important to us that our Kleenex® products fibers are 100% plant sourced. Kimberly-Clark's Vision is Better care for a Better world.
*Kleenex® Anti-Viral tissues, some Kleenex® pocket packs and Kleenex® Perfect Fit tissues are not FSC® labelled.
