This year our family has taken our soft summer memories and made them permanent, because this summer we’ve moved to our favorite vacation destination. We always bring the kids to watch the sun rise in the summer months, and now we can do it in fresher air with cleaner water.

Scotties Facial Tissues have been with us everywhere we went this summer, as we explored old forts, had fun at playgrounds all over Florida, watched the sun rise over the ocean and navigated our way through Florida’s urban jungle, rural wilderness, historic neighborhoods and scenic waterways.

Our kids especially love searching for history, and there is nothing better than scavenging through old forts and historic sights. Our favorite fort is surrounded by a beautiful green lawn, where we love having picnics, but of course it also affects our allergies, and so we need to make sure that we have a box of Scotties in the stroller.



Summer vacation has ended for us, and the kids are now back in school. With three kids in school, it means a never-ending school supply list, and one of the items that each child has on their school supply list is facial tissues.

Our go to brand is Scotties Facial Tissues, because we can always count on Scotties to deliver soft, quality facial tissues at affordable prices. We always wait for a BOGO sale at Publix, and then we print out Scotties coupons to make the price even better. If you sign up for the Scotties newsletter, you will always have access to the latest Scotties coupons too.

Scotties have  3-ply, or 3-ply with aloe facial tissue for the extra strength you need, and we especially love the 3-ply facial tissue with aloe. With all of our allergies and colds, we go through a lot of  facial tissues in our family, so it is important for us that we purchase products manufactured by companies focused on sustainability.

The J.D. Irving, Limited specialists have planted over 8850 million trees on owned and Crown land in Canada and the company has developed and follows guidelines for sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forest with exceptional conservation value. J.D. Irving, Limited has over 20 percent of its forest dedicated as conservation habitats.

We are thankful that Scotties is proud to stand behind its tree planting promise to plant three trees for every one they use to produce Scotties products. This means that three seedlings will be planted in the spring and summer months for every one used to produce Scotties products the previous year.
