Paper use
I have a question regarding using paper fast food napkins, paper towels and toilet paper to help save the world in doing our part for conservation. The other day on the Oprah show, a guest suggested we should cut down our use of paper napkins to save a bunch of trees. I think we should use less paper towels too. And, I wondered if the use of single ply toilet paper would also help save the trees as well as saving us trouble with our potty drains not just in homes but in homes where the drainage system isn't that great. What do you think? Should we all buy single ply? Shouldn't we use linen napkins more. Any additional suggestions for conservation with regard to paper?
