    100% recycled toilet paper is very common now so very easy to find! Same with recycled printer paper. Look for the Eco logo and Rainforest logo. It’s usually the slightly higher price that prevents people from buying recycled products… But I think it’s worth the extra buck to know that I’m having less of an impact on the Earth. It just seems like the right thing to do. Everyone’s just used to looking for the absolute cheapest price! But sometimes there’s a reason for things being super cheap…and I have a feeling it’s not pretty.

    I’m getting my church to look into recycled paper products and unfortunately it’s the higher price that prevents them from ordering them.

    Some people don’t think cutting down trees is a problem because we can replant. They say trees are a renewable resource… How can I convince people that buying recycled products and reusing materials is important?
