Scotties Facial Tissues ~ Giving Back to the Community

Scotties Tissues

We are big fans of Scotties Facial Tissues – not only do they have great products, but that they go above and beyond to be environmentally friendly and give back to the community.   Scotties plants 3 trees for every 1 they use, are certified through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and are linked with the Renewable Forest Project.  Plus, they have also partnered with American Forests to promote urban tree planting initiative.  Scotties Tissues has also done other great things, like sponsoring cat adoptions, and now they are working on new projects to help those in need.

January was a great month for 100 homeless people in Boston who are now living in permanent supportive housing thanks to the generosity of The Pine Street Inn. The Pine Street Inn is the largest resource for the homeless in the state of Massachusetts. They provide emergency shelters for the homeless, have street teams, they offer job placement programs as well as many other resources.

In a partnership with Scotties Facial Tissues, the new residents were welcomed into their new homes with comfort care packs. In an effort to kick off 2017 with a worthy cause, Scotties provided each of the 100 residents with a queen-sized fleece blanket, warm slipper socks, a mug with hot cocoa and marshmallows, and of course boxes of  soft Scotties tissues! These small gifts of comfort can be just what may be needed to turn a house into a home. For so many homeless people, who have not had a room of their own for a long time, this acted as one small step in their journey to a better life for themselves.

Maria, who has lived in her beautiful home for the last three months was previously homeless.  She has made her home her own by beautifully decorating it in the style of her native home, Columbia.  She is eager to put the Scotties blanket to use this winter!

    I love to read about companies doing good things and giving back. It makes me want to give them my money even more.

    I’ve never heard of this brand before. I like it when brands give back to the community.
