Cascades wins Edison Award for innovation

Cascades’ Antibacterial paper towel has received Gold honours in the Edison Awards Consumer Packaged Goods: Cleaning Solutions category.

Cascades’ Antibacterial paper towel has received Gold honours in the Edison Awards Consumer Packaged Goods: Cleaning Solutions category. The award, named after Thomas Edison, was bestowed to Cascades in a special gala held in Chicago recently, and came by way of an international judging panel of more than 3,000 business executives, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medicine. The company’s novel paper towel was launched October 2012 in the North American market as a simple, safe and effective way to reduce bacterial contamination and transmission. Dry to the touch, the green-colored Cascades Antibacterial paper towel has been confirmed in third-party testing to kill over 99.99 per cent of harmful bacteria on contact with wet hands. Studies also show that paper towels are the best choice for hand hygiene; the antibacterial version is therefore an even safer option.
