Very economical, middle-of-the-road comfort toilet paper
on October 10, 2010
I have been a loyal Charmin buyer for many years. Charmin is a very soft toilet paper, but is not as environmentally friendly as this brand. While contemplating switching to a greener brand, I worried that I might sacrifice comfort. I read many reviews of this product on amazon and I couldn't find a direct comparison between Green Forest and Charmin toilet paper in terms of comfort level. I am quite sensitive when it comes to toilet paper, so I am willing to pay slightly more for the softer kind. After using this brand, I can tell you that this bran is much better than some low quality brands (Scott for instance) but not nearly as soft as Charmin.
Green Forest is quite good for many reasons. It is strong enough to withstand heavy use and is not as scratchy as the cheap 1 ply brands you might find in a public toilet or on sale at the supermarket. I was able to get it at a reasonable price (50c per roll), so it is a reasonably good value but it does come with a down side. However, it is still quite scratchy compared to the higher end brands.
I would recommend this product to someone who is looking for a decent, economical, environmentally friendly toilet paper. However, I would not recommend this to someone who is particularly sensitive about what makes contact with their body's nether-regions. I paid 65c/roll for Charmin basic and had a much better experience with that product. To me, it's worth the 15c extra.
