424,000 trees would be left standing if we each replaced one regular roll of toilet paper with one roll of recycled toilet paper. We each use about 21,000 sheets of toilet paper a year. I know I’ve asked this before, but do we really need virgin paper for our, ahem, butt? I think not. I know some people say recycled tissue isn’t soft. That used to be the case, but softness has been greatly improved. At a minimum we should be bugging the big guys like Kleenex and Charmin to start using recycled content.
