Kingsey Falls, November 27, 2013 – For the third year in a row, Cascades is delighted to be deemed the most responsible company and brand by Quebecers. The results of the study, which surveyed more than 1 100 consumers, were made public yesterday by the Observatoire de la consommation responsable (OCR) of the École des sciences de la gestion de l’UQAM.
The Responsible Consumption Index also revealed that the most widespread eco-friendly behaviour among Quebec consumers is buying local products. In addition, the OCR learned that bathroom tissue and household paper towels made from recycled fibres are in the top five ecological products most often purchased by Quebecers. Cascades is very pleased with the growing popularity of its eco-friendly products among consumers.
