How is this possible? By using 100% recycled paper products in our homes and businesses! For 60 years Marcal has made it their mission to * “make paper from paper, not from trees”*. The New Jersey based company processes over 200,000 tons of paper each year into 100% recycled paper products. Unlike many of the other paper products you see in stores, Marcal whitens theirs without the use of chlorine bleach and there are no added fragrances or dyes.

Join the Marcal Movement to help save another 1,000,000 trees! You’ll receive a $1.00 off coupon! You can also follow @marcalsmallsteps on Twitter and Marcal on Facebook to keep up with current promotions and news. Check out the Marcalendar. It has some great ideas for getting a little more green this month and beyond!

After using Marcal Small Steps products for the past week I’ve realized that recycled paper products are way better than I thought they were. The paper towels are very sturdy and tackled the toothpaste on the mirror with no problem! The napkins and facial tissue are also sturdy, but not scratchy. And here’s the biggest test – the T.P. otherwise known as toilet paper! Durable, sturdy, but softer than the generic brand we buy from the dollar store! Both the 2-ply and 4-ply Marcal Small Steps varieties were way comfier to use than our usual brand! Very surprising since I thought they would be stiff and irritating but I am happily wrong.

The paper towels, napkins and 4-ply toilet paper are quilted in an adorable heart pattern! The paper towels that we tried had the very useful half sheet size, love that as it’s way less waste! The big pack of everyday napkins comes in a drawstring pouch! Very cool because that meant they were still in the bag and not all over the shelf under the counter like usual.

One lucky reader will win a Marcal Small Steps starter kit worth $25! The kit includes an assortment of Marcal paper products: toilet paper, napkins, paper towels and facial tissues!

actual kit will vary from photo |
