Whenever a cold strikes, nearly all of us reach for the same thing — facial tissues. There are a lot of tissue companies out there, but do you ever think about what the company you support does to pay it forward? I recently had the chance to try Scotties tissues and also learn more about their new environmental education initiative called TREES ROCK!
The Scotties TREES ROCK! program teaches 3rd – 5th graders about the importance of trees in our world. This year, Scotties Facial Tissue will be launching its second annual TREES ROCK! Video Contest. The TREES ROCK! Video Contest invites individuals or groups of kids in grades 3, 4, and 5 to submit a one-to-three minute video expressing in their own way “Why trees are so important to them, their school, and their community” and “What they would like to see their school do with the $10,000 prize money”. The winning entry will receive $10,000 to be used toward a sustainable project for their school. In addition Scotties will give them their own TREES ROCK! Rock Concert and conduct a celebratory tree planting ceremony at their school.
“The TREES ROCK! Video Contest is designed to be a fun and active way for kids to discover how important trees are to our environment,” said John Robertson, Director of Marketing for Scotties Facial Tissues. “We are delighted to make this program an exciting way to challenge kids to explore their environment and find the same enjoyment in nature and the great outdoors that we do here at Scotties.”
As I mentioned, I recently tried these tissues. I had seen them in the store, but I was so brand loyal that I hadn’t even thought of purchasing another brand. I will say that I was very pleasantly surprised when I tried these. They not only cost less, but they worked just as well as the big name (aka more expensive) brands out there!
I actually did my own “feel test” with my husband and I. I just wanted to make sure that we weren’t being biased. Both of us did the same thing – selected Scotties when it came to the one we liked more! Who knew!?!?!
What I really like about Scotties Tissues is knowing that for every tree used to make tissues, they are planting 3 new ones in it’s place. So, they are very concerned about the environment and prove that not only with the new program as mentioned above, but they truly practice what they preach!
One reader will receive five (5) boxes of Scotties Tissues and a $25 Target gift card
