I don't call myself "Heck Of A Bunch" for nothing. There's a bunch of us in my household and that can add up to a lot of waste. Between all the bathroom stops, runny noses, meals, and messes there seems to be a never ending need for paper products.
By using Marcal Small Steps paper products, my family can help save four trees after just one year. That gives me a peace of mind when we are constantly using paper towels, napkins, tissue, and toilet paper. Instead of harming the environment, we are helping ensure that trees can continue to thrive with Marcal Small Steps.
Marcal Small Steps was introduced in 2009 with their line of 100% recycled paper products. Most of the recycled paper comes from Township and Collection Agencies, and is primarily made up of used magazines, bulk mailings, office paper waste, and other scraps. Now that may sound a little odd or make you think their products are rough to use, but my family has been using it with no signs of roughness or scratchiness. We've found the facial tissue to be gentle on our noses, the paper towels easy to clean up messes, and the toilet paper to do its job on our behinds. For those with sensitivity to dyes and fragrances, it is good to know that no dyes or fragrances are used in the manufacturing of their products. There is no need for trees to be killed when there is a way for us to use paper products without harming the environment.
One person will win a Marcal Starter Kit that includes an assortment of Marcel paper products - toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, and facial tissues.
