Kimberly-Clark’s vision guides us to make lives better through the essential products we make, and the programs we implement in the communities where we live and work. To that end, Kimberly-Clark is working to tackle the challenges associated with post-consumer waste and single-use plastics with a focus on delivering a preferred consumer experience for products, such as baby wipes and flushable wipes, while reducing their overall impact from source to shelf and beyond.
