Atlanta, GA, June 09, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The SofPull™ Centerpull Tissue Dispenser is putting a new spin on
one-at-a-time dispensing. The latest design from Georgia-Pacific Professional, this unique innovation is the first of its kind in the United States and makes it easy to get the right amount of tissue with one pull—reducing waste, overhead costs and promoting wellness through increased hygiene.
The SofPull dispensing system features a completely enclosed roll, with sheet-by-sheet feeding of tissue pulled from a small opening in the front and leaving a minimal amount of tissue exposed. This contemporary design helps improve on the traditional pull-style of tissue dispensers because it allows for no-fuss, one-at-a-time dispensing. Since the tissues are previously untouched, the tissue is more hygienic and helps reduce the chance of cross-contamination. Users also pull one tissue at a time, which has proven to help reduce usage.
“SofPull is the first single dispensing, center pull system in the U.S. and is a premier innovation in the tissue category because of its efficient design,” said Nick Trainer, vice president and general manager – Georgia-Pacific Professional’s tissue and soap category. “The dispenser’s ability to help eliminate cross-contamination while also helping to reduce costs for the facility represents the next step in Georgia-Pacific Professional’s commitment to quality products that are better for the user, customer and environment.”
The SofPull dispenser is part of Georgia-Pacific Professional’s Green by Design™ Program for environmental sustainability. The system has 60 percent less packaging waste per case than Georgia-Pacific Professional’s jumbo bath tissue. It also has been well received in test markets because it eliminates over-spinning and minimizes roll replacement. The tissue used in this dispenser is a soft, two-ply product that meets EPA standards for recycled content. Further, there is no outer carton or inner wrapping, which helps conserve paper use. The system is available in Splash Blue or Translucent Smoke and is designed to fit in stalls with single, side-by-side or stacked configurations.
