Every ton of 100% recycled paper SAVES an estimated 4,100 kilowatt-hours of energy and 7,000 gallons of water.

If all paper towels were made with 100% recycled materials, approximately 1 million tons of used paper would be SAVED from our waste stream.

Using recycled material in bathroom tissues SAVES 3.5 tons of virgin wood from manufacturing.
Organic Housekeepers, cleaning with a conscience, saving the earth one tub at a time.Organic Housekeepers recycles amenities, like soap and shampoo, to save lives

OH partners with Clean the World to recycle soap
Clean the World collects, sorts and sanitizes discarded soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion amenities donated from participating hospitality partners — like us.

Then, Clean the World recycles the amenities (yes, recycles soap) and delivers the hygiene products to domestic homeless shelters and impoverished countries suffering from high death rates due to acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease.

Clean the World has put over 5 million soap bars and 250,000 pounds of shampoo and conditioner back into human use, simultaneously eliminating over 380 tons of waste.

Why we choose green paper products
All of our paper products, with the exception of facial tissue, because it’s not available in the client-preferred cubed box, meet Green Seal Certification standards. These standards include:

100 percent recycled content

Minimum 40 percent post consumer waste

Process chlorine free

Green Seal is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to create a more environmentally sustainable economy by identifying and promoting environmentally preferable products and services. These standards help consumers make sound choices when it comes to paper products, because paper, as an industry, stamps a huge carbon footprint on our fragile planet. Check out the statistics at the top of the page.

Green Seal certified paper products are the better, more sustainable choice. The organization sets strict standards on how much recycled content the paper contains, including post-consumer materials (any items that have already been used by consumers or businesses and would otherwise be sent to landfills or incinerators), and it also sets restrictions on the bleaching process used (unbleached or process chlorine free).

By purchasing paper products with recycled and post consumer materials we are helping to save energy and divert tons of waste from the landfill. By choosing paper that is manufactured without the use of chlorine bleach, we are helping to keep harmful toxins like dioxin, a suspected carcinogen, out of the atmosphere.
