Green twos.

Pros

The product itself does what's supposed to do, works well with no drawbacks or softness issues, sustainably farmed bamboo with great company values.

Beats the pants off the more "respectable", bleached products with little to no environmental conscience

Cons

Slightly expensive relative to Earthcare, I suppose. Will research that

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.
