Wausau Paper wins 2014 PPI award for "Tissue - Innovative Product of the Year"
with its new DublNature product line!

S SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 10, 2014 - As most in the commercial paper business know, the key to making a successful tissue product for the market isn't just about price and quality, but also innovation. Although an innovative tissue product could be one with extra super absorbency, it could also have a new style of embossing or finishing that really makes a difference. Pulp and Paper International (PPI) created an award that is presented annually to the company that has "pulled out all the stops" to produce new products that clearly stand out from all the basic commodity products on the market. 

This year's PPI award for Innovative Product of the Year – Tissue has deservingly been bestowed upon Wausau Paper Corporation of Harrodsburg, Kentucky for its new product line called DublNature®. To determine Wausau Paper Corporation as the recipient of this award, the judges were not only looking for creativity and inventiveness, but also more importantly what Wausau Paper did to combine these two important elements into a viable product for the end-user.

Launched in 2013, the new Green Seal™ certified DublNature® product line is comprised of premium plush, cloth-like towel and tissue products made from 100% recycled material. When combined with Wausau Paper's range of innovative washroom dispensing systems, the use of DublNature® products can help improve the appearance, hygiene and efficient operation of any commercial washroom.  More information can be found on the product line at this website:
