Paper Sticks: The Key to Cotton Swabs and Lollipops

Medicine cabinets and candy jars are just two of the unexpected — and probably overlooked — places where Domtar is part of everyday life. For years, Domtar has supplied the paper that goes into making paper sticks for some of the largest cotton swab and lollipop makers in the United States.

You can't twist a swab or lick a lollipop without those small paper sticks.

"This is a fun side of the business that not many people think about," said Chris Gagner, an account manager at Domtar. "There is a lot of electronic substitution that is impacting the paper industry, but paper sticks are a stable segment of the industry. The product is safe and biodegradable and cannot easily be replaced."
