This giveaway is now closed. See who won here.
As a frugal person who cares about the environment, I someday dream of a day when I will be less reliant on paper towels and paper napkins and will use cloth instead.
But until my three little boys get out of that sticky stage, I just can’t give up the convenience of paper.
So I try to look for alternatives and one that I’ve found is Marcal Small Steps.
Marcal Small Steps products makes toilet paper, napkins, and paper towels from 100% premium recycled paper without chlorine bleaches, fragrances or dyes.
According to the company, if every household in the U.S. replaced one package of traditional toilet paper with Marcal Small Steps, together we could help save nearly one million trees. And, in your own home, a family of four could save two trees a year (17 trees over 10 years) just by switching to paper products made from 100% recycled materials.
I recently got a chance to try some of the Marcal Small Steps products. While the facial tissue was too rough for my tender nose, the paper towels, bath tissue, and paper napkins were just as good as their less eco-friendly competitors.
I haven’t been able to find Marcal Small Steps in my rural area, but Marcal does claim to sell for less than traditional paper goods. I frequently see some high value coupons online and in the Sunday papers, which would help make this an affordable small step toward helping the environment.
To celebrate Earth Month, Marcal Small Steps has created a calendar of the many ways you can help the environment with your own “small steps.” Just stop by the Marcal Small Steps Facebook page and download the Marcalendar with some great ideas for getting a little more green this month and beyond.
