This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #76: Katklaw777!

With all the baby showers, birthdays and holidays each year, we go through a great deal of Scotch Magic Tape. I’m not really sure what I’d do without it, but I do know other brands just don’t seem to measure up. Just this month, Scotch Magic Tape reached its 50th anniversary, so what better way is there to celebrate than to create another version that is sure to become just as essential to everyday life?


Scotch® Magic™ Greener Tape is a more environmentally-friendly version of the original, matte-finish invisible tape, with the same great performance. Made from over 75% recycled or plant-based materials.

  • Based on weight, this product contains over 55% recycled plastic and over 20% plant-based materials based on:
  • Dispenser and core made of 100% recycled plastic
  • Tape made from over 53% plant-based materials
My Thoughts
Tape is a necessity for any busy mom and I can’t tell you how many times I use it each week. Now that I have a more eco-friendly alternative to use, I can do it without feeling like I’m being wasteful. I received an awesome desk kit that included a Scotch Magic Greener Tape dispenser with the eco-friendly tape, two refill rolls of Scotch Magic Greener Tape and two recycled cedar pencils all nestled inside a nice wooden desk organizer!
I love that the dispenser is refillable and, including the packaging and tape, it is made up of more than 75% recycled materials. Considering how much waste we contribute as a family each day, I’m all or using as many eco-friendly alternatives as possible. I only wish more companies took such an initiative to recycle and reduce our carbon footprint!
Sometimes I’ve noticed that the greener, more eco-friendly brands don’t always work as well. I was worried this would be the case with Scotch Magic Greener Tape, but my worry was put to rest as soon as I tried it out. Not only does it look and smell just like the original Scotch Magic Tape, but works just as well! Refill rolls of Scotch Magic Greener Tape are also available. The retail prices runs rom $2-4 for a refillable dispenser and roll of tape; $5-7 for a two-pack of refill rolls.
