Treehugger time

I read a wide variety of other people's blogs. Several of them lean toward environmental issues, one of my main interests. I was catching up on reading other blogs when I came across this great line in one of them:

"Live more gently

on the earth."

This what we need to do! We need to pressure stores to stock more paper products that use recycled materials and stop buying toilet tissue that is 100% newly-cut trees. According to The Equalizer blog at http://theequalizerfcw.blogspot.com/ Kimberly Clark has announced that they will begin to use 100% environmentally responsible sources for their products by 2011. This puts pressure on other companies to follow suit.

The US Postal Service is down-sizing again due to the reduced volume of mail. We're talking a huge amount of paper being saved by people using other sources of communication. Despite the tragic loss of jobs, this is good news for saving trees! Save the trees--save the planet!

I never understood why the post office let the junk mail be sent at a reduced price. Seemed to me it should have been HIGHER since it was unsolicited! But at least email has put an end to a tremendous amount of waste!
