Cascades Receives Gold Honors

Cascades said its Cascades® Antibacterial paper towel received Gold honors – the highest available – in the Edison Awards Consumer Packaged Goods: Cleaning Solutions category. The award, named after Thomas Edison, was bestowed on Cascades through an international judging panel of more than 3,000 business executives, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medicine. The novel paper towel was launched in October 2012 in the North American market as a simple, safe and effective way to reduce bacterial contamination and transmission. Dry to the touch, the green-colored product has been confirmed in third-party testing to kill over 99.99% of harmful bacteria on coming into contact with wet hands.
