Our thinking about sustainability doesn’t end when a product is sold. We’re continuously innovating to design products and packaging that are environmentally-friendly, efficient to produce, and that bring secondary value after use.

MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION EASIER, UK AND US
Sometimes the different requirements for recycling various types of material – glass, plastic, metal, paper – can be confusing. To make it easier we’ve joined programs like On-Pack Recycling Label in the United Kingdom and How2Recycle™ in the United States, which provide simple, consistent recycling instructions for packaging.

WORKING THROUGH MANY CHANNELS, LATIN AMERICA
Together with Teletica, one of Costa Rica’s top TV stations, we established AmbientaDOS to help make the concept of “reuse and recycle” viable in Costa Rica.

HELPING CUSTOMERS RECYCLE, NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE
At Kimberly-Clark Professional we are helping customers divert used materials from landfills. Through the RightCycle program, we work with customers across more than 140 collection sites around the world to recycle used gloves and garments. RightCycle has grown from recycling just under two tons of material in 2011 to 101 tons in 2015.

FILLING THE GAP, AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND
To help people recycle flexible plastic packaging we partnered with the RED Group to start REDcycle. Now, more than 500 drop-off points across the two countries collect these materials. Through a partnership with local manufacturer Replas, the recycled plastic is being converted into useful products like outdoor park benches and playground equipment.
