Today, 3M announced the introduction of Scotch Greener Masking Tapes which are designed to provide the same great performance as other Scotch Masking Tapes, while creating less waste and conserving paper resources. The new tapes are made with 56% renewable resources*, including paper backing made with 30% post consumer recycled content and adhesive made with natural, regenerating latex harvested from rubber trees. The tapes are manufactured using solvent-free and water-based processes. The tape core contains 87% post-consumer recycled fiber and the shipping cartons are made with 100% recycled fiber.

"We know consumers are concerned about the environmental impact of their everyday choices, including their choice in masking tapes" said Michaela Toohey, 3M marketing manager, "Commitment to sustainability is an important part of our culture at 3M, and has been for many years. We're proud to offer new greener masking tapes that provide great performance and lessen environmental impacts."

Painting projects continue to be the No. 1 home improvement project among DIY enthusiasts. The new Scotch Greener Masking Tapes will provide DIYers and professional paint contractors with a more environmentally sustainable choice for painting and other household or school uses. These tapes can also be used towards LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification credits for green building projects.

Scotch Greener Masking Tapes are available in two varieties: Scotch Greener Masking Tape for Basic Painting 2025 and Scotch Greener Masking Tape for Performance Painting 2050. The basic painting tape features high adhesion and is ideal for use on surfaces such as vinyl, carpet and wood. The performance painting tape features a thicker backing and medium-high adhesion, making it a good choice for woodwork, wood cabinets and trim. Household and school uses include crafting projects, labeling, and other general use indoors.

• 5-day removal
• Medium-high adhesion

Scotch Greener Masking Tape for Basic Painting #2025

The new Scotch Greener Masking Tapes are available at Walmart, Target, Sears/Kmart, Walgreens, and paint and hardware stores.
