How do we offer more Dixie® products that you love while
helping to protect our environmental resources?
From the trees we source to the energy that powers our factories, Dixie® products
are produced with the future in mind.
We thoughtfully and intentionally design our products to use less materials without sacrificing quality and performance.
That's why our Dixie® To Go cups use half the material of the leading double-wall cup*, and our Dixie Ultra® plate proprietary rim design provides high strength while using materials efficiently.

WHERE BUSINESS AND SUSTAINABILITY ALIGN
From beginning to end, Georgia-Pacific's Dixie® products are produced with the future in mind. That's because we believe the role of business in society is to help improve customers' lives with great products that are produced responsibly. This belief is the thread that connects everything that we do, from business decisions all the way to our company culture.
YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, WE HAVE ANSWERS.
Q. ARE THE TREES USED TO MAKE DIXIE® PRODUCTS SUSTAINABLY SOURCED?
A. All trees are responsibly sourced and certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Fiber Sourcing
Standard, ensuring that sustainable forestry practices are followed.
Q. HOW DOES GEORGIA-PACIFIC CONSERVE WATER IN THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS?
A. While a significant amount of water flows through Georgia-Pacific's mills systems, our paper
making process allows for very little of that water to actually be consumed. Most of it is recycled and reused, then treated and discharged.
Q. WHO SUPPLIES THE TREES USED TO PRODUCE DIXIE® CUPS AND PLATES?
A. We support small and local landowners: 70% of the wood we buy for use in Dixie® products comes from US family forest landowners.
Q. DO YOU USE POLYSTYRENE FOAM IN YOUR CUPS AND PLATES?
A. No. Polystyrene foam is never used in Dixie® cups and plates.
Q. ARE DIXIE® CUPS AND PLATES RECYCLABLE?
A. Dixie® plates and cups may be recycled in the few recycling facilities that accept paper products
containing food residue. Such facilities may or may not be available in your area.
