Kleenex wipes up waste by removing plastic on all tissue boxes

The change aims to make recycling easier for customers and is expected to remove 82 tonnes of plastic per year from the supply chain

Kleenex is removing the plastic opening on all its tissue boxes as part of a wider commitment to reduce plastic waste.

The plastic opening, designed to help dispense tissues one at a time, has been completely removed from all variants - on the brands 'premium range' it will be replaced by a paper collar.

The change aims to make recycling easier for customers and will roll out across the full portfolio by August 2020 - it is expected to remove 82 tonnes of plastic per year from the supply chain.
