Something that’s always bothered us about recycled toilet paper offerings is they're always wrapped in plastic or individually wrapped in paper. It just doesn’t make environmental, or in the case of single rolls, financial sense. So finally, here's a recycled toilet paper that's made of recycled content and comes in a recyclable package…Ever-Green Toilet Paper comes in packs of 12 and is packaged in a box that reminds us of a soda or beer refrigerator case. Used rolls fit in a hole in the case and when all the rolls are used the entire box can be recycled. In addition to the smart packaging, no plastic, dyes or fragrances are used, and both the core and the box are made of 100% recycled fiber paperboard. The paper itself is made from used office paper and textbooks. And instead of being bleached with chlorine the paper is whitened using a mixture of recycled envelope shreds.
We haven’t tried the actually toilet paper yet to test its, err, comfort, but this is definitely a move in the right direction for recycled toilet paper products. A 12-pack case of Ever-Green is available at GreenLine Paper for $6.95 or at LetsGoGreen for $8.89.
