For every 1 tree that they use to make their paper products, Majesta will plant 3 new trees. They hope to plant 1 million trees in 2010.
As part of learning about this amazing movement, our family got to try their toilet paper, paper towel and facial tissues. And for "eco" products, they work really well. The tissue and toilet paper were surprisingly soft. My family definitely prefers the Majesta Soft and Green toilet paper to the kind we usually by.
But not only are the products soft and durable during their expected use, they are amazingly biodegradable.
We were give 5 sheets of Charmin, 5 sheets of Majesta and 2 water bottles. We filled the water bottles 3/4 of the way full and added the sheets to each bottle. Watch what happened:
Water with toilet paper:
5 little shakes and the Majesta had already started to break apart. Where the Charmin is still in one piece. That's crazy!
I know that our house will be switching to Majesta Soft and Green from here on out.
How would you like to change more than just the toilet paper in your bathroom?? What about making green renovations all over your house??
