Made from 100% Recycled Chlorine-Free Paper
By choosing Seventh Bathroom Tissue, you'll be making an important environmental difference immediately. These paper towels are not whitened with chlorine and are made from 100% recycled paper (80% post-consumer, 20% pre-consumer). Hypo-allergenic, unbleached, fragrance-free, and made without dyes or inks, this tissue paper is safe for septic systems and ideal for low-flow toilets.
Post-consumer paper is paper that has been recycled at home or at the office. Buying post-consumer paper helps finish the job you started--of saving the earth's natural resources, including trees, water, and energy. And using products made from post-consumer recycled materials helps reduce the need for virgin wood pulp, which means more trees are left standing. Trees naturally absorb carbon dioxide--a greenhouse gas that's the primary contributor to global warming. In fact, a single tree, over its lifetime, absorbs about one tone of CO2. To put it another way, a ton of recycled paper saves seventeen trees.
If every household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of 500 sheet virgin fiber bathroom tissue with 100% recycled ones, we could save 448,000 trees, 1.1 million cubic feet of landfill space (equal to 1,700 full garbage trucks), and 161 million gallons of water, which is a year's supply for 1,270 families of four!

Seventh Generation makes a fine brand of bath tissue--even if it's not exactly Charmin soft. I prefer the texture of Scott bath tissue so for me this product was not a huge difference. I enjoyed knowing that I was helping to keep our planet "green" when choosing this bath tissue.
This bath tissue is made of completely recycled paper--80% of which is post consumer material! Great! All this DOES reduce pollution, just as they advertise on the wrapping of the roll of toilet paper. The wrapping is great and the bath tissue is whitened without using bleach. I am very impressed. Predictably, this bath tissue is not just kinder to Mother Nature; it's easier on those of us who are sensitive to scents. It is hypoallergenic; and it is perfectly safe for toilet and septic systems just as Amazon notes above. Of course, there's always a limit to how much paper will go in one single flush down the toilet; but most people have an intuitive sense about this so it shouldn't be a problem.
Of course, bath tissue never "goes stale," so if you catch a sale on this product stock up on it! The rolls can be stored in the package they come in; or you can store the rolls individually in various places throughout your home where they will be needed.
Unfortunately, there are three concerns. First, Seventh Generation bath tissue is comparatively expensive to most other brands of bath tissue. People on a budget may simply not be able to afford this product. Second, some people will protest the feel of this paper since, as I wrote above, it's not exactly Charmin soft. Third, this paper is also too thin for some people's tastes; one ply toilet tissue can mean that you wind up using more to do the same job. I'll take off two stars for these issues even though I personally like this product. I know that in time Seventh Generation will figure out a way to make this bath tissue stronger, softer--and cheaper.
- Love this and love that it's environmental
Love the 1-ply better than 2-ply, by far. Love that I can save money and buy this in bulk. Love that it's recycled. Love that it's individually pre-wrapped....more info
- save trees!
Shipping is free. Much cheaper to buy it here in bulk on Amazon than at Whole Foods. It's an easy thing to do to help save trees from being cut down. Pretty pathetic that trees are destroyed just so people can wipe their butts with new, bleached paper. Use Seventh Generation! ...more info
- Cheapest Recycled Toilet Paper per Sheet
I did a cost comparison on Amazon on all the toilet paper they sell. I took looked at one with free shipping & used the subscription rate (for the extra 15% off) on every one. This particular one with 1000 sheets cost the least per sheet of all recycled toilet paper at the time of this review. Actually, the only other tisse (including non-recycled) that cost less per sheet was the Scott 1000 sheets.
So, going green doesn't have to cost a lot of money. It might actually save you money....more info
- Never worry about running out.
Great value. Large rolls. Lasts a long time. I order by the case 2 to 3 times a year and I never have to worry about running out. Also feel like I'm doing my part for the planet as this product uses recycled paper and no bleach. I like every thing about Seventh Generation!...more info
- Bought the single-ply by mistake
We use quite a few Seventh Generation products and I had previously purchased a case of the 2-ply bathroom tissue. When I reordered, I got the 1-ply by mistake.
We're using it, but I will be glad to see it go so I can get the 2-ply again. I would gladly sacrifice a little comfort for what is hopefully a more environmentally friendly product. This version, however, just isn't usable.
If you are considering this, I strongly recommend the 2-ply instead....more info
- Easy to "do the right thing."
Fills a need for those of us who wish to do the right thing by using recycled paper products, but find them hard to obtain locally. Large rolls of good quality bathroom tissue, and with free shipping, at an affordable price. Amazon, please continue to offer this worthy product....more info
- read about dioxins and the environment
and you will never want to use chlorine bleached products again....more info
- seventh generation bathroom tissue
Greatest thing for enviroment and septic system, better than white scott tissue no chlorine biodegradable and feels the same, and also 1000 ct...more info
- Just as good as the name brand...
I have been using Seventh Generation products for awhile now and find myself impressed with this toilet paper. I, along with a another reviewer, always used nothing but the Scott 1000 sheet toilet paper. I find this toilet paper to be of equivalent quality. I love the fact that I'm helping out the environment and I too have signed up for the automatic shipping of this....more info
- 1 Ply - How much TP are you really saving?
1 ply is so thin, I find myself using more of the stuff to avoid mishaps. When I buy 7th Generation TP at the store, it's usually 2 ply, and I think that's a better product. Wouldn't buy this 1 ply stuff again....more info
- seventh generation 1-ply bathroom tissue
I love it!!!! It is just as good as Scott only better because it helps the environment....more info
- Great buy
Works fine, inexpensive, and recycled! And it's so convenient not to have to lug home toilet paper from the grocery store. It's not as soft as the most expensive toilet paper, but all it's used for it wiping bottoms, and it works fine for that....more info
- compare with Scott
With subscribe and save a 1000 sheet roll of Scott comes to 84 cents, while a 1000 sheet roll of Seventh Generation comes to 85 cents. A penny a roll is a cheap price to pay for a 100% recycled product....more info
- 5 stars for the environment....BUT.........
...everyone should use this tp... but with that said, you must know that it's thinness will shock you the first time you use it. it's 1 ply and you have to unroll twice as much to get what you normally use... ( the rolls seem to go on forever, so it's good value for money.) Once you get over the initial shock, you know you're doing the right thing for the environment and it kind of feels good, y'know?! [=...more info
- One ply doesn't really cut it!
I usually love seventh generation products but this one is way to thin. I have to use about 15 sheets every time, which kind of defeats the purpose of single ply. Go with the seventh generation two ply double roll, its much better....more info
- Good paper - better for the environment
This TP is fine. Yes, it's thin and not soft, but gets the job done without using virgin pulp and bleach. I care about the earth and will support companies like Seventh Generation....more info
