When it comes to creating our paper towels in a responsible manner, we consider every step of the journey — from making thoughtful paper towel design considerations in the beginning to ensuring the packaging and cardboard tubes can be recycled when finished.
HERE’S A CLOSER LOOK AT ALL THE WAYS WE’RE MAKING THIS HAPPEN:
PROTECTING NATURAL HABITATS BY HELPING TAKE CARE OF FORESTS
Endangered wildlife like the Louisiana black bear help maintain our forests’ ecosystems, and our goal is to keep them and other vulnerable species going strong. This means we only source wood from these areas if active forest management is needed to improve the overall habitat.
OUR PAPER TOWELS ARE COMPOSTABLE
We encourage you to compost your Brawny® Paper Towels in your home/ backyard compost piles or at a commercial composting facility in your area. Just remember not to compost paper towels soaked in cleaning products as they can kill the microorganisms that make the composting process take place.

ONE TREE IS REGROWN FOR EVERY TREE USED
We play an ongoing role in keeping forests as forests — ensuring that they continue to help protect air and water quality, provide important habitat for wildlife and offer recreational opportunities that we all can enjoy.
All trees used to make Brawny® Paper Towels are sustainably sourced and certified to the Sustainable Sourcing Initiative® Fiber Sourcing Standard, ensuring that sustainable forestry practices are followed.
No, Brawny® Paper Towels that are wet or have food residue should not be recycled. However, when finished with the roll, the cardboard tube can be recycled in your curbside bin. You can also recycle the plastic wrapping our paper towels are packaged in by taking it to any retail store that collects plastic grocery bags for recycling.
