It’s time to get serious...

Every day it feels like there’s another bit of bad news out there about the environment. It feels insurmountable. It’s clear the world has serious issues. This is why four social entrepreneurs got together in 2020 and created Serious Tissues, a Social Enterprise business. Four fathers of young children who wanted to do something about climate change and make a difference in their futures.

It's time to make a change

As well as planting trees, Serious Tissues are 100% recycled, Carbon Neutral, UK made and plastic free. They offer a paper range that includes toilet paper, hand towels and blue rolls. They have also expanded into liquid soap and laundry products with a model that recovers 1kg of ocean-bound plastic with every unit. That’s the equivalent of 50 plastic bottles or 500 crisp packets stopped from finding their way into the ocean. 

Serious works with local communities, providing employment for those who need it. Currently, Serious plants trees in the UK, Nepal, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Kenya, Ethiopia, Haiti, Colombia, and Central America. They plant a wide variety of tree species that are native to the regions they are planted in.

Positive impact

Serious Tissues is a toilet roll business that plants trees with every sale and now has a full range of paper products for the home and workplace. In just three years Serious Tissues have planted over 1.7 million trees, and are currently planting the tree equivalent of four Hyde Parks every single week! 

Serious have successfully tapped into a growing movement among big companies looking to make a positive impact. Major organisations such as Accenture, Siemens, CBRE, BT and AXA have signed up to portals such as the Social Value Portal or SEUK’s Buy Social Corporate Challenge, pledging to shift billions of spend towards companies making a positive impact.
