Closing the Loop

Look, there are some things we use in our lives that we just can’t avoid.  While I know of alternatives to our disposable society for items like paper towels, disposable diapers, and several other one-use products, something we have to use is toilet paper!

So what are we to do?  If you ask Sheryl Crow, use only one piece of toilet paper per bathroom visit.  Hmm…thanks for the great advice Sheryl, but I don’t think I’m ready to make that change in my life.

What about buying recycled paper products?  Green Home Experts carries recycled paper towels, toilet paper, and facial tissues.  Why bother?  Consider this statistic:

If every household in the U.S. replaced just one 175-sheet box of virgin-fiber tissues with 100% recycled tissues, we would save 163,000 trees!

Switch your toilet paper to the recycled type and save 423,900 trees!

One roll of paper towels would save 544,000 trees
