Is Tissue Paper Recyclable?

Is tissue paper recyclable

Yes, tissue paper IS recyclable.


Tissue paper, used for wrapping presents and in gift bags, is recyclable. However, it has a lower fiber content than other kinds of paper, so it is more difficult to recycle and yields less recycled product than other papers.

But before you toss that tissue paper, reuse it as many times as possible.  It can be used for multiple gifts before it needs to be recycled.  Even when ripped, it can be used for numerous kids crafts, when packing delicate items, and as compost.

Check out some great kids craft ideas (including flowers, kite, wreath, and holiday-themed crafts) and adult craft ideas.
