Rapidly Renewable Fiber (RRF) paper products are whiter, brighter, softer, greener and meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Standards!
What is Rapidly Renewable Fiber?
Rapidly Renewable is a term that describes plant materials that harvest in a 10-year cycle or less. Rapidly renewable resources have been recognized for years by the U.S. EPA and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as raw materials that are environmentally preferred. These Rapidly Renewable Fiber (RRF) towel and tissue products are produced from fast growing eucalyptus and acacia trees that flourish in warm, moist climate, reaching full height and maturity in 6-8 years, as opposed to old growth trees that can take 15-25 years to grow to full maturity. Shorter harvest cycles yield more paper from more trees on less land and in less time. That’s true sustainability in paper!

Rapidly Renewable Fiber Versus Recycled Paper Fiber
Rapidly Renewable Fibers are made from fresh, new wood pulp that produce whiter, brighter, softer paper products.
Recycled paper fibers are made from new paper as well as previously recycled paper that may be soiled and contaminated. Recycled paper may contain inks, glue and other contaminants that produce sticky (glue/binder), gray/dirty paper pulp.
Recycled Paper is Still Useful, Just not for Use on Our Bodies
There are many uses for recycled paper, such as corrugated cardboard, etc. But, given the choice, wouldn’t you feel better using new, clean fibers on your face and body versus recycled?
