Saving Trees and Stopping Global Warming

There are literally hundreds of ways in which you can help prevent global warming, the hard part is committing yourself to making the change. The good news is that many of the changes that can be made are pretty easy; it just involves changing some small details in your daily routine. Two Basic Paper Recycling Facts If you want to help prevent global warming, then you should become aware of where your paper comes from. Think about the paper towels in your kitchen, the Kleenex on your table or the toilet paper in your bathroom. According to Laurie David in her book Stop Global Warming: The Solution Is You!, many of the everyday tissue paper products we use, like toilet paper, come from 100 to 150 year old virgin forests in Northern Canada.

[1] When virgin forests are cut down to supply our paper needs, they can no longer help process the gases which are warming our planet. Don't despair though! Saving these trees is easier than you think. As David notes, "If every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin toilet paper with one recycled post-consumer waste roll, 424,000 trees would still be standing." The problem is that most brand name tissue papers ? Kleenex, Scott, Angel Soft, Cottonelle, Bounty, Brawny, Puffs, Charmin ?have zero recycled fibers in their products.[2] Use Your Buying Power to Stop Prevent Global Warming This means that it is your duty to make the change and actively seek out products which use recycled material. Because non-name-brand tissues don't carry the high overhead expense of multi-million dollar ad campaigns, these tissues will likely save you money as they help you fight global warming.

Currently, there are no government policies which dictate the composition of tissue papers in the United States. Furthermore, a mandate which would require producers to include recycled or post-consumer materials in their products is unlikely to occur in the near future. The easiest and perhaps most effective way to discourage destructive forestry practices is to make a financial statement by purchasing from companies that strive to use recycled fibers.

The following is a list of toilet paper brands which you can buy for your home which will reduce the number of virgin trees that are cut down and help prevent global warming. If not entirely composed of recycled materials, these companies at least have a high ratio of recycled to virgin fiber in their products: Best Value, Marcal, 365 Everyday Value, Colortex, Earth Friendly Products, Fiesta, April Soft, Doucelle, Green Forest, Cascades, Mr. Jumbo, Natural Value, Pert, Planet, Seventh Generation Recylced Bathroom Tissue Papericon, Soft'N' Fluffy, Trader Joe's, Ultra Val-U and Velvet.[3] Once you've successfully upgraded your toilet tissues don't stop there! Strive to broaden your awareness of recycled and post-consumer products.

Remember, you as the consumer hold the power to change the way paper products are used. Everyday brings forth new opportunities. The world seems bright tomorrow; let's do what it takes now to make sure it stays that way for a long time to come. [1]Stop Global Warming: The Solution Is You! [2] [3] ibid.
