As I have said many times before, I truly believe the seemingly small choices we make every day, can and do have a big impact on how the world is evolving and what we are leaving behind, for many generations to come.
I noted an interesting article in the April issue of Vegetarian Times re: household paper products and how these purchases impact the environment.
For example: If you were to replace one box of regular facial tissues with a box of 100% recycled ones X by every household in America= 163,000 trees would be saved! Is that not a staggering and amazing statistic and of course, just one example of how our choices make such a difference, collectively.
The Natural Resource Defense Council is offering a handy list of which brands of paper products (household) are better for the environment, in addition to other useful green tips. Also the opportunity to send a message to the paper ‘giant’ Kimberly-Clark, to voice your opinion/opposition re: their use of virgin wood for throw-away paper products.
