Wausau Paper Taking Green to a Higher Level

Introducing New Dubl-Nature(R) Green Seal(R) – Certified Product


MOSINEE, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 16, 2007–Wausau Paper (NYSE:WPP) today announced the expansion of its Green Seal(R) -certified product offering by introducing the new Dubl-Nature(R) towel and tissue line.

The Dubl-Nature(R) Green Seal(R) -certified towel and tissue line offers exceptional quality and a sophisticated appearance for the “away-from-home” market. Made from a superior grade of 100% recycled wastepaper, Dubl-Nature(R) products offer outstanding brightness and absorbency, are processed chlorine free, and meet or exceed United States Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for post-consumer waste. A premium consumer-like embossing pattern and environmentally preferable packaging make Dubl-Nature(R) products ideal for Class A office buildings, luxury hotels, green buildings, green hotels, and colleges and universities.

“Through our new Dubl-Nature(R) line we offer our customers the highest quality Green Seal(R) -certified products available,” stated Thomas J. Howatt, Wausau Paper president and chief executive officer. “Our Towel & Tissue business consistently demonstrates its ability to innovatively respond to opportunities and add depth to our environmentally preferable offering for the away-from-home marketplace. Recognizing and meeting the needs of a growing number of customers specifying green products, in what otherwise is a highly commoditized sector, continues to set the course for growth by our Towel & Tissue business.”

Products available in the Dubl-Nature(R) line include roll and traditional folded towels, bath tissue, and the recently introduced OptiFold(TM) folded towels for the office buildings market. Combining Dubl-Nature(R) controlled roll towels with Wausau Paper’s Bay West Silhouette(R) line of controlled-use dispensers can further reduce waste and improve total cost considerations for facilities managers.

The Bay West(R) product line includes EcoSoft(TM) and EcoSoft(TM) Green Seal(R) 100% recycled towels and tissue, DublSoft(R) premium towels and tissue, Dubl-Tough(R) industrial wipers, Silhouette(R) dispensers, and the Wave’n Dry(R) dispenser.
