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)

To enter, tell me if there's anything you do to cut down on paper waste in your home.

We have been using the Marcell products for over a year now. I think they had a name / or package change not too long agao.
We have been using cloth napkins for a couple of years and it's really no big deal to wash them.
We recycle just about everything and also recycle w/terracycle for items that are hard to recycle.

I reuse my paper towels to dry my hands several times a day, then I use it to either pick up the stuff after sweeping my kitchen floor, or to disinfect my kitchen sink.

Use the plastic bag your newspaper comes in when cleaning vegetables,saves a paper towel & they are too small for other use,just toss the bag in the garbage.

26 Marlena U. February 18, 2010 at 10:42 am

We've stopped purchasing paper towels and are using old towels for cleaning purposes around the house. It was a tough adjustment at first, but we've gotten used to it.

We cut down on our paper usage by using only the select-a-size type paper towels, and we use cloth dinner napkins as often as possible. For diapering, we use cloth.

44 Deb February 18, 2010 at 12:01 pm

We use small wash-clothes you can find at the Dollar Tree to wipe off our one-year-old's hands, face and highchair tray rather than using paper towels. It works better and the wash-clothes can be washed over and over.
