Cascades was among 16 other businesses to showcase its new release. In all, more than 1,200 ballots were submitted in three categories.

Cascades’ Intelligent Bacterial Hand Towel quickly reduces the number of residual bacteria left on hands after washing and assures an antibacterial protection for 30 min, contrary to alcohol-based hand sanitizers and a variety of antibacterial soaps. The paper is referred to as "intelligent" because it compensates for people's imperfect hygienic habits without changing the way they do things. This product is accepted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. More information about antibacterial products is available on the company’s website.
