Well, NOW I’ve done it! I made a change that made my husband call a foul!
I switched our cushy Cottonelle Ultra toilet paper to an eco-friendly recycled brand and he is not happy. So much that it prompted him to blog about it and tell the world that he’s putting his foot down for the first time!
I think in the back of my brain I thought I could make the switcheroo and he might not notice, but in reality, I knew this might be his limit. And alas, it is.
I picked up some Seventh Generation toilet paper, and sure, it’s definitely nowhere near as thick and soft as the popular brands, but hey… I felt like saving some trees! I recently learned that if every US household would replace just one 500-sheet roll of regular TP with one recycled roll, it would save nearly 425,000 trees annually. Seventh Generation is made from 100% recycled paper (with a minimum of 80% post-consumer) but I guess some would argue that paper “with a previous life” should never go near these “regions”.
If you have a better recommendation, PLEASE, let me know. I can feel like I am staying true to my green mission, and maybe my husband will go along… with no ifs, ands or “butts” about it!

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet
"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.
There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.
