Incontinence pads are also about forest industry
Forest industry may not be the first thing to associate with something as intimately embodied as incontinence care.
Producing the fluff to the pads’ absorbent layers, it is, however, a key industry in the production of the pads.
While solving the question of sustainable land usage remains key for the sustainability of forest industry, it may also provide solutions for a more sustainable future for adult incontinence care.
Along with a range of experts from other fields, our project’s PI, Tiina Vaittinen, was interviewed for this podcast, produced by Stora Enso, which asks:
