Paper tissue, tissue towel and wet tissue have been a common necessity for Hong Kong people, a survey shows that more than 100 million tissue papers are being consumed in Hong Kong every day! To conserve resources on earth, Lyreco encourages waste reduction at source and strives to introduce more eco-friendly paper tissue for substitutes, offering a broader choice of the use of eco-friendly paper for customers.

Reducing the use of paper is certainly the most effective way of waste reduction, yet it takes time to change one’s habit. While fostering the habit of saving paper, we can start reducing waste from choosing suitable paper tissue according to its raw materials, size and specifications.
