Happy Earth Month! Let's celebrate with a "green" giveaway!
Going green doesn’t have to be a burden on your lifestyle or your wallet and there are lots of small things families can do every day to help the environment.
For those of us watching our budgets (who isn’t?!), Marcal doesn’t have the “green premium” often attached to earth-friendly brands. In fact, Marcal Small Steps typically sells for less than traditional paper goods that are made by cutting down trees and often contain dyes and fragrances that Marcal doesn’t use.
To celebrate Earth Month, Marcal has created a calendar of the many ways you can help the environment with your own “small steps.” Click here to visit Marcal's Facebook Fan Page and save or print this Marcalendar with some great ideas for getting a little more green this month and beyond! If you do not have a Facebook account, click here to view the calendar. Here is a fact that I learned from the Marcalendar: Buy fresh foods instead of frozen -Frozen food uses 10 times more energy to produce. I had no idea!
Marcal Smalls Steps makes toilet paper, napkins, and paper towels from 100% premium recycled paper- not trees. It may seem like a small thing, but it actually adds up. If every household in the U.S. replaced one package of traditional toilet paper with Marcal Small Steps, together we could help save nearly one million trees. And, in your own home, a family of four could save two trees a year (17 trees over 10 years) just by switching to paper products made from 100% recycled materials.
You can enter to win a Marcal starter kit (worth $25). The starter kit features an assortment of Marcal paper products—toilet paper, napkins, paper towels and facial tissues. Perfect for anyone who wants to give Marcal Small Steps a try!
Entering is EASY! You can submit up to TWO entries by leaving a separate comment below for each entry:
1. Share "small steps" that you take to help the environment, such as using a refillable coffee mug versus plastic or paper cups.
