"Lead the World in Essentials for a Better Life"
Kimberly-Clark Corporation is an American multinational personal care corporation that produces personal care, consumer tissue, and professional products worldwide. The company sells household use products directly to supermarkets, mass merchandisers, drugstores, warehouse clubs, variety and department stores, and other retail outlets, as well as through other distributors and e-commerce; and away-from-home use products directly to manufacturing, lodging, office building, food service, and public facilities, as well as through distributors. Founded in Neenah, Wisconsin, in 1872 and based in Irving, Texas, since 1985, it has approximately 42,000 employees. As should be expected, technology development is mostly in mixtures/compositions and films/wrappers, which are being developed for the "flushable wipes" market. The knowledge base behind their consumer products technology positions Kimberly-Clark to create better biodegradable/compostable packaging for their products. It may be that a major solution to plastic pollution is not a new polymer, but faster-composting compositions, as Kimberly-Clark is developing.
