Ology - 100% Tree Free Bath Tissue Review

You may have noticed a new brand on the shelves at your local Walgreens. Its Ology and its available exclusively at Walgreens. 

Walgreens took note of the fact that more and more consumers are becoming concerned with the chemicals in their home products and they took action. 

The result is the Ology brand.

“Walgreens is proud to be leading the charge by providing ‘Ology,’ the first nationally accessible and affordable line of household liquid products free of harmful chemicals available in our stores,” said Joe Magnacca, president of daily living products and solutions for Walgreens. “Ology reflects our dedication to innovation, our constant drive to improve our customers’ quality of life, and our ongoing commitment to help people get, stay and live well.”

In order to get the word out about their new line of products, they sent a group of bloggers like myself a $15 Walgreens gift card in order to buy an Ology product and try it at home. I was indecisive about which product to try, but luckily fate stepped in and I ran out of toilet paper. Problem solved, I purchased the Ology Soft and Strong Bath Tissue in the 12 pack. The first thing that popped out at me is the big bubble that say 100% tree free.

Ology Bath Tissue

Yep, I said TREE FREE. Traditional bath tissue is made from trees that can take up to 35 years to renew. The new Ology tissue is made from sugarcane husk which would have been disposed of and bamboo which regenerates in as little as six months!

Every time I see stacks of notebook paper I wonder to myself how many trees are being cut down in order to make them. I never really thought about toilet paper in that way, but the folks over at Ology did and they did something about it! 
Not only is it made from readily renewable sugarcane husk and bamboo but it is whitened with H2O2 which is a non-chlorine bleach. It is also septic safe and biodegradable.

As the package indicates, Ology Soft and Strong bath tissue is both soft and strong. I'm glad I got this opportunity. Their motto even resembles mine:

I choose to live well, therefore, I choose Ology.


You can buy Ology at your local Walgreens or online at

Disclosure: I was sent a Walgreen’s gift card for the purposes of obtaining Ology products to review. No other compensation was offered or received. No suggestions or requests to select specific products within the Ology line were offered. I was in no way obligated to write a positive review and all opinions are mine and mine alone.


  1. Must try the toilet paper! Thanks for the review!

  2. I found the toilet paper at my local Walgreen's and was super happy to see this type of alternative. I buy it all the time now. It's softer then a lot of other non tree toilet papers!

  3. I bought this toilet paper and I am very impressed. Ology is now my go to brand for toilet paper.

  4. Only issue is this toilet paper is made in China! Do we really need to buy TP made in China? Sad...
