Pros: Better than not having any toilet paper.
Cons: Expensive even for recycled chlorine-free paper; extremely loosely rolled; seems like they're conning the consumer.
This was, indeed, far too few sheets per roll for me. It is comparable in cost to Seventh Generation's toilet paper - sorry, "unscented bathroom tissue" (and may I never run into scented bathroom tissue!) - but provides much, much less. These folks offer 198 sheets per roll, Seventh Generation (and many other brands) offer about 500.
Looking straight down at the top of the roll makes the difference obvious. Green Forest is very loosely rolled; the gaps between layers are visible, and it is easy to squeeze the roll and compress it more closely. If they wrapped their 198 sheets as tightly as normal toilet paper rolls are wrapped, the rolls would obviously be quite a bit smaller. It looks very much as if the company deliberately did whatever they could to make their rolls look the same size as everyone else's so they could go ahead and charge about the same amount.
Obvious or not, I didn't realize it when I first bought their stuff. I assumed that if it looked the same, it probably was the same. I even read the numbers on the front that said "198 sheets" and decided that there must be something about the rolls that made up for that - bigger sheets perhaps. Unsurprisingly, when I got it home I soon discovered that we went through it at least twice as fast as through any other toilet paper we had tried.
It's not bad as far as texture goes; it's soft and it does what it's meant to do just fine. But it doesn't do it for long!
I think that I was originally attracted to it because it was a few dollars cheaper than the other brands. But it's still in the same basic price range - it's certainly not 2/5 of the cost of Seventh Generation or anyone else on the market. The worst part is that it looks very similar to Seventh Generation, has similar marketing and eco-friendliness, so I have several times accidentally bought the wrong kind at the store. Boo, Green Forest. Boo.
