One Small Change - One Huge Result


Home is where we can do a lot to reduce pollution and sustain the health of our planet and our own in the process.
While recycling is up in this country Americans still throw a lot of trees away. It's really not necessary to flush ancient forests down the toilet - we have perfectly good alternatives.
Fact : If each household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of virgin fiber toilet paper with recycled paper - we could save 423,900 trees.
That's pretty significant!! This goes for paper towels too. Pledge to make this small change today!!

I heard using the extra soft tissue is bad - because they have to cut down less mature trees.

I love this suggestion, and yes - I will use recycled paper in my home!

Sabina, on Farmville, I accidentally SOLD my barn (while rearranging things) and had to re-buy it! LOL

Yes, yes, yes! Be the change we wish to see, and this is exactly what we do at home.

I'm a recycled paper girl through and through!

A good reminder to all. We have been using recycled tp for years, we do not buy paper towels and we use cloth napkins which get recycled as cleaning rags and then get put into the compost because they are cotton.

We do use recycled tissue - and have not had a paper towel in years - just use rags and find it works great for anything we need. Also cloth napkins.

Great post - thanks for reminding us.

Great post... oh by the way, I dropped a full roll of recycled toilet tissue in the shower this morning while the shower was running... then had to throw it out, really I'm serious... you most definitely know this happened to me.
