Win-It Wednesday: Marcal Paper Products Package (4 Winners)!

by Tara Kuczykowski on February 17, 2010 · 614 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting several 24-hour giveaways throughout the day to give you plenty of chances to win!

Maybe you're not ready to go full on green and use cloth for napkins, paper towels, or *gasp* even TP, but Marcal has a decent compromise with their Small Steps line of products. Marcal Small Steps are produced from recycled paper so they're gentle on the environment while still being easy on the wallet.

We've been giving many of the Marcal Small Steps products a test drive around our house, and while they may be slightly less soft than their traditional counterparts, I'd say the environmental impact outweighs any slight difference in quality. If you want to give Marcal a try for yourself, there was a FREE Marcal Paper Products coupon in the 1/31 Smartsource insert!

Marcal Paper is dedicated to providing paper products to consumers like you that you can feel good about purchasing. As an “Earth-Friendly Paper Goods Company," they believe products should work well, be good for the environment and be affordable. All of their products are made from recycled paper.

Four Deal Seeking Mom readers will win a Marcal Paper Products Package including:

  • Dinner Napkins
  • Napkin Drawstring Bag (180 ct.)
  • Upright Facial Tissues (80 ct.)
  • Facial Tissues (144 ct.)
  • Single Roll Giant Towel
  • 4 Rolls Bath Tissue 2-ply
  • 4 Rolls Bath Tissue 1-ply (1000 ct.)
  • Regular Towels (3 rolls)

We don't use paper plates anymore and try to cut down on using paper towels.

2 LANA February 17, 2010 at 11:34 pm

I reuse paper printed out by my husband's office to print out my coupons. I simply flip the sheets over and use the back of the sheets.

3 Lily February 17, 2010 at 11:40 pm

The only paper used in my household really is paper towels, tissue, and toilet paper...

I rarely print but when I do, I use recycled paper and ALWAYS print on both sides.

4 Emily February 17, 2010 at 11:42 pm

We reuse napkins that aren't really dirty. We also reuse the back of printed paper for a variety of things. Also when using a paper towel for a clean up job...if it isn't ready to be thrown out, I decide to clean something else to get the full use out of it.

5 Hollie February 17, 2010 at 11:43 pm

I try not to use paper napkins and plates! Thank goodness for the dishwasher and washing machine!!!

6 Jennifer February 17, 2010 at 11:48 pm

It may cut back on using so many paper towels when wiping up water spills to just run the towel under the warm water to clean it up abit and then hang it on the dish rack or wherever to dry. You may have to use another towel meanwhile the other is drying.
Another idea for using so much toilet paper depending on what the cleanup would be, cut up cotton panties(no longer useable) into squares. They make great cleanup cloths. You can either throw them away after using or even throw them in your laundry for another cleanup job.

We've been using more rags and less paper towels, and using reusable bags instead of paper. I also print my coupons on the back of junk mail! :-)

I have been wanting to try this line, but my store doesn't accept the free coupons that come out so I haven't been able to. I hope this is my chance!

I buy less paper towels and everyone in the house seems to be using less!

18 Shanon February 18, 2010 at 12:17 am

We reuse paper as many times as possible and then recycle or donate it when we are done.

19 JANIS February 18, 2010 at 12:21 am

We are homeschoolers and I now copy on both sides of the paper. We reuse scraps as well

We try not to print anything unless necessary, and don't buy a lot of paper towels instead use tea towels. We also try to recycle everything we can.

27 nancy February 18, 2010 at 1:43 am

I save on paper by using micro fiber clothes and wash and reuse them.

1) Recycle, recycle, recycle. We have gone from multiple bags of trash every week to 1 bag of trash and multiple bags of recycling. Practically everything can be recycled - paper ( once you used both sides), cereal boxes, oj cartons, mail/catalogs, plastic fruit containers, plastic bags/packaging the graham crackers come in...
2) We teach our kids about recycling by allowing them to recycle any redeemable bottles and keep the money as their "allowance" for doing this chore. They think it's fun, whil learning a valuable lesson and the price is right for mom and dad.

32 Kimberly February 18, 2010 at 2:33 am

We used to be huge paper towel users but have really cut down and actually have only been using Marcal Paper Towels because of all the awesome deals..

I also save all the excess paper after printing coupons to use as scratch paper and my shopping list paper..

Basically just try and get the most out of everything.

I bought cloth napkins to help cut down on paper towel usage. One set i bought had space on the tag to write, so i made a napkin for each person in the house. The kids love it and want to use their own napkin at meals. :o)

I used to use paper plates a lot but have cut back on using them and trying to cut them out completely.

47 Tracy February 18, 2010 at 8:39 am

We reuse paper that only printed out on one side and use cloth rags to clean.
