Sunrise 100% Premium
It might not be a popular topic, but we're flushing a lot of paper down the toilet. I'm not suggesting we recycle that paper, just that we use recycled paper in the bathroom.
Sunrise, made by Marcal, is hypoallergenic and made without chlorine bleach. It's every bit as soft and fuzzy (and white) as any nonrecycled paper roll. And we don't get a lint-covered toilet-paper holder.
Marcal says their production of 100% recycle products saves every day:
- 6,000 trees
- 2 million gallons of water
- 22,000 pounds of air pollution
- 140,000 gallons of oil
- 30,000 cubic feet of landfill space
See, you're saving the planet one bathroom break at a time.
How recycled is this roll? It's 100 percent recycled content, 30 percent of which is postconsumer content. (That means at least 30 percent came from stuff people like you and I recycled, while the rest came from factory scraps and other nonconsumer sources.)
You don't have to hit specialty stores. This is available at Jewel, Meijer and other stores. (Jewel tends to split the recycled toilet paper between the organic and toilet paper aisles. I'm not sure what decides which aisle it ends up in.)
It's a little more expensive than the toilet paper I usually buy, because I'm a thrifty shopper who stocks up on sales. And I haven't found a pack larger than four rolls. But I buy this on sale and with coupons, so it's not so painful.
There are other recycled toilet papers out there, but if you're anything like us, you'd like to do the right thing but are worried about getting stuck with sandpaper. You won't know Sunrise is anything but regular toilet paper. Good Housekeeping even gave it its seal of approval.
