Q. How is Quilted Northern toilet paper made?
A. Trees are harvested from sustainable forests, the bark is removed, and the trees are “chipped” into small pieces. These wood chips are softened to separate pulp fibers from lignin. The lignin is used as a fuel, minimizing waste, and the pulp fibers are washed and bleached to become paper stock. This paper stock is then dried, softened and cut into smaller rolls to make the soft yet strong toilet paper you know as Quilted Northern®.
