Cascades Tissue Group supports its employees volunteering at the Grande Corvée by donating products

CANDIAC, QC, June 17, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - To help out nearby communities in the Montérégie region and support its employees volunteering for the Grande Corvée, Cascades Tissue Group is offering $20,000 worth  of tissue paper products.

With this donation, Cascades Tissue Group wishes to help out stricken neighbouring communities and thank its employees who gave of their time. Employees volunteered for both week-ends of S.O.S. Richelieu's Gande Corvée. Those who participated during the first weekend were deeply touched by testimonies of gratitude from residents and by the strong sense of solidarity with fellow volunteers who worked together to clear debris and sandbags.

Cascades is proud to contribute to the Grande Corvée by delivering a trailer of Cascades Extreme® hand towel paper. Located in Candiac, Cascades Tissue Group's headquarters employs more than 140 people and a majority of them lives in the Montérégie region. The Group produces most of its tissue paper with 100% recycled fibres, which reduces the need of cutting new trees. Cascades Enviro® products are whitened without chlorine and produced with 66 % less water than the paper making industry average.

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres. The Company employs more than 11,000 employees, who work in more than 100 units located in North America and Europe.
