Since we’ve gone through over a box of tissues in a week or so, I thought I’d share this: Green Forest tissue is better than Seventh Generation tissue. Not only is the Green Forest tissue softer than the Seven Generation stuff, it’s got a higher percentage of post-consumer recycled paper (both 100% recycled paper, but 40% post-consumer for Green Forest, 20% for the Seven Generation), so it’s better in every way. And btw, since I’ve managed to get Yut sick too, we did a side by side product comparison and we were both in agreement about the superiority of the Green Forest; that’s 100% in favor!
I’ve been trying to take advantage of our colds (I managed to find a bright side, harhar) by testing out more brands of tissue with recycled fiber but we’ve had a really tough time finding these brands. We got the Green Forest at Berkeley Bowl and the Seventh Generation at Long’s Drugs, but Target has NOTHING and neither does Walgreens. I mean, not one brand of tissue with recycled paper content of any kind. Is it just the local Target and Walgreens or is this some kind of bad-Kimberly-Clark-tissues-only at every store in the country policy? Hmmph!
