I was able to track down some recycled paper towel from Staples.ca, I figured I’d give it a try since I’m not ready to give up the disposable paper products just yet…
Rolls were small but when I did the price comparison it was on par with other brands. (I literally did price per sheet comparison)
Overall this paper towel works as expected, it cleans up my baking mishaps with optimal absorbency, it worked as good as any other paper towel I’ve bought with the added bonus of being 60% post consumer products (recycled newspapers, flyers, etc.)
My only critique is that the product came wrapped in plastic… I don’t think it would have been difficult to wrap it in an alternative (such as just the cardboard box it came in) but I’m assuming that there is sanitation requirements that still need to be complied to.
Will I purchase it again? If I find a recycled paper towel product that doesn’t come in plastic- No. If this is the best alternative to traditional “virgin” paper towel- Yes.
I try not to over use paper towel, but you never know when you’ll have a pot boil over with sugar in it- just good to have.
