Marcal Review & Giveaway

by Melanie Roberts

in Closed Giveaways, Product Review

Have you heard of Marcal ? They produce 100% premium Recycled paper products from napkins to paper towels even toilet paper, all is 100% Recycled. I remember a few years ago, well that was before I moved to America, my grandma always bought recycled paper and at home we called it “Sandpaper”, cause it was so rough and just horrible. I did not like it at all, not to use a napkin or toilet paper. When I was asked to review the Marcal 100% Premium recycled paper products, I was a little skeptical and even hubby kind of pulled his nose up and said” well, you are on your own with your test, I will stick with * can’t say the name*”.

So before I did the actual test, I did a little research and this is what I found out about Marcal.

Our name is inspired by those small changes that make a big difference. Changing your paper purchases to the Small Steps® brand of eco-friendly products helps saves trees, making leaving a greener environment for future generations. In fact, if every US family switched just one of their paper purchases to Marcal® Small Steps®, together we could Save 1 Million trees!

We Believe…

By using 100% premium recycled Small Steps® brand paper products you can feel good knowing that you are helping the environment. At Marcal®, we believe that products that are good for the environment shouldn’t cost a lot.

Safe For Your Family, Safe For Your Home

Our 100% premium recycled eco-friendly products are hypoallergenic, virtually lint free, and whitened without chlorine bleaching. Small Steps® bath tissue, towels, napkins and facial tissue contain just the right combination of strength, absorbency and softness to handle every job.

We are proud to announce SOFTER 2 Ply Bath Tissue and Towels that are STRONGER When Wet!!
 

Okay so now I had the paper products in the house and I was pleasantly surprised, the TP isn’t as rough as I remembered recycled paper to be, even the Toilet Paper at the office is worse than this Marcal and we aren’t even using Recycle paper there. This paper isn’t as soft as you are used to by some other brands, but it sure is a lot softer than what Recycled TP used to be and nope it doesn’t “hurt”. I don’t think anyone would have noticed the difference. I did a little test in my house, remember hubby said I was on my own…. Well… the other day I replaced the empty TP roll with the Marcal roll and didn’t say a word to anyone, this morning I kind of mentioned that I need to test Marcal and see how it holds up…. Again not one word was said… now mind you everyone in the house has been using the New Softer Marcel TP and they haven’t even noticed the difference. …lol… yup.. now everyone was part of my testing and they didn’t even know it.

So after about a week and no one noticing the difference I did go ahead and asked them if they noticed anything different with the TP paper and how they liked it… All were amazed that this was actually the recycled paper they had been using all week. We will be looking for the New Softer Marcal from now on, especially since there are always coupons out for their products that make them a lot cheaper than any of the other brand name paper products. In our eyes, Marcal is a keeper and we are looking for deals now.

For more information you can check Marcal out on their website, Facebook or follow on Twitter. Another cool feature for you to check out is the Tree Calculator, which will tell you how many trees your family can save by using Marcal products.

You don’t have to look for a deal just yet, how about entering my Giveaway below to try it before you buy it. Marcal graciously offered one of my readers one pack of Toilet paper and one roll of kitchen towels.

One Lucky 2Boys+1Girl=OneCrazyMom Reader will win 1 pack of Toilet paper and one Roll of paper towels.

There is no need for fancy products to serve these needs. This seems like a good economical and green solution to something that everyone uses on a daily basis.
