Laure Patouillard appeared on Moteur de recherche to discuss the life cycle of tissue paper. She says there is no simple answer to the question of whether it is better, from an environmental standpoint, to use a reusable tissue or a disposable tissue. “It depends a lot on how often you use them,” she explains. If you blow your nose often, investing in a tissue may be worth it as long as you reuse it for many years. If you don’t use a lot of tissues in a year, your most environmentally responsible option is to choose tissues made from recycled, unbleached paper.
