There are now myriad choices of 100 percent-recycled toilet and tissue paper available.

Depending on the brand, post-consumer recycled content ranges from 20 to 80 percent. Make sure to avoid harmful chemicals, too. Look for paper that’s totally chlorine-free (TCF) or processed chlorine-free (PCF).

Editor's pick: Shopper's Drug Mart carries the Bio*Life brand of recycled unbleached toilet paper.
