I wrote in December that recycled tissues had disappeared from the supermarket shelves.
I did find an email contact for ABC Tissues (who make the Naturale brand) — they told me to expect their recycled tissues back into Woolworths/Safeway stores soon, in a new packaging.
Last week Flerdle commented that they’d been spotted in Brunswick. I still haven’t seen them in my local though.
But yesterday I happened to explore the new Carnegie Central shopping centre, which has a shiny new Woolworths supermarket. (Yes, the changeover from Safeway has officially started. It’s odd though, having a new store so close to the existing Carnegie Safeway, which is still open.)
And they had the tissues in stock.
Mind you in the mean time I’d made an effort to use hankies more than tissues, to help my depleted stocks last a bit longer. I hope/suspect the energy involved in keeping the hankies clean is less than it takes to produce the recycled tissues.
Still, it’s good to have the tissues available again, as I just can’t see the sense in chopping down trees to put my snot on.
