Rate the Rolls!: A toilet paper challenge… (yes, really!)

WC rate the rollzLoyal readers know all about my on-going search for the “right” brand of recycled content toilet paper.  I’ve tried to make several changes from our regular “cushy” brand but my husband immediately called a foul every time and insisted I stop messing with the “business”!

So, when White Cloud offered to let me take their “Rate the Rolls” Challenge, I jumped at the chance.  They sent two rolls of toilet paper (okay, bath tissue, if you prefer!) simply marked “A” and “B”.  Both are made from 100% recycled fiber and, obviously, one is White Cloud’s “GreenEarth” brand and the other is the leading competitor, but I have NO idea which one is which.

Without any other information, here is what the Mom Goes Green family concluded:

  • Roll “B” simply looked more “user-friendly”, if you will.  It appeared fluffier and even whiter.
  • There didn’t seem to be a dramatic difference in thickness, although I will admit that there may have been a psychological advantage to the quilted appearance of Roll “B”… Roll “A” looked a bit flat and less inviting.
  • As far as softness, they were fairly close, but we all agreed that Roll “B” had an ever-slight advantage… even when you crinkled it in your hand, the “crinkle-sound-factor” was a bit less for Roll “B”.
  • Without getting too graphic(!) they felt fairly similar when… umm, “used”.  I’ll just leave it at that.  Stalemate.

All things considered, what did the MGG family choose?  Drumroll, please!…  Roll “B”!  While there weren’t extreme advantages, Roll “B” just seemed a bit closer to what we’re all used to (and my husband even agreed he would give a thumbs-up to Roll “B”!)  Knowing that they’re both 100% recycled content, we’d choose Roll “B”, every time.  And let’s face it, there is a psychology to everything we choose… while our own families might not care so much what our toilet paper (bath tissue!) looks like, we never want guests in our home to feel like we stole our TP from a public restroom or put out the cheap stuff!

Did we pick White Cloud’s GreenEarth? I have no idea.  They haven’t told me yet!  Stay tuned to find out… you’ll know when we do!

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.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Are either one tubeless? I mean do they have cardboard tubes? New on the market or was it market research? Heard of it and i will look for it myself. The husband cares about TP? Suprised as a guy I used to ask my other guy friends to pick up the paper work since they were going that way. Would clearly say 2 ply, got single every time. Seems all of them said it was cheaper but I question “performance”. Now I’m married and have more say about restroom stationary than is neccesary. What has been said about 3 ply here? Hopefully folks are just stepping away from such a wastefull product. Pun not intended.
