Tork launches biobased cleaning cloth to help companies meet sustainability goals without compromising performance

Tork®, an Essity brand, extends its industrial cleaning offering with new products and packaging, including the new Tork Biobased Heavy-Duty Cleaning Cloth. The new cloth is made from 99% biobased fibers, plant-based and sustainably sourced, independently certified as OK Biobased by TÜV Austria. Together with upgrades across the range, Tork aims to strengthen businesses through improving both efficiency and sustainability. 
Customers are demanding products that help them meet their sustainability goals while increasing productivity. With products such as the NEW Tork Biobased Heavy-Duty Cleaning Cloth, companies can benefit from improved performance for absorption, durability, linting and solvent consumption while reducing their environmental impact. 
Tork is making further improvements across the range with new and improved packaging. Tork packaging now uses 30% recycled plastics (helping to close the loop and reduce virgin plastic consumption) and 100% recycled cardboard fibers.  
The carbon footprint of Tork exelCLEAN® cloths has also been reduced by 28% over the last decade*.
In addition to our sustainability improvements there are upgrades that make dispensing more efficient. Tork Cleaning Cloths are now interfolded for easier, faster access. One-at-a-time dispensing means customers only take what they need, reducing waste. 
Sustainability is becoming a significant factor in customer choices. Our products and packaging  are designed to maximize efficiency and deliver greater sustainability, all while maintaining rigorous performance standards.
