The Unfixed Nature of Sustainability

Sustainability Panel - Carole Mars

How do consumers define sustainability? Is it "all natural" or "organic" products? Maybe it is products with a low carbon footprint or made with recycled or recyclable ingredients? This panel will deliberate the differences between what we, the wipes industry, define as sustainable and how consumers interpret sustainability. Each member of the panel will share how their company satisfies the consumers' interpretation of sustainability when it can mean so many different things.
