Review of Marcal Small Steps Paper Products8:34 AM
Have you heard the tagline from Marcal products that they have been using since 1950? It’s “Paper from paper not trees” and I believe that it is extremely encouraging in today’s world of eco-friendly changes. Marcal recently provided a statistic that I think is shocking:
In 2009, 98% of tissue products comes from deforestation.
Think about that… doesn’t that make the idea of 100% recycled paper products that much more important? Small Steps from Marcal recently sent me a “starter kit” so that I could sample all of their new 100% recycled paper products. Made from stuff you throw away every day (like junk mail, magazines, catalogs, and office paper), it’s a brilliant solution to the waste problem. (And the products are super soft, absorbent, and high-quality, too!) Because the products are affordable, you won’t feel the good decision you make by buying 100% recycled in a bad way when it comes to budget time, either. (Note: The toilet paper that we tried was one-ply, so it didn't feel as soft as what I'm used to. However, for a one-ply product, it was on par with products that contained all new or only partially recycled paper.)
