not to be political but this is the reality...
the forests in metion? our ancient northern boreal forests!

1. Over 700,000 tonnes of tissue products are used each year in Canada.

2. Over 7.4 millions tonnes of tissue products are used each year in the US.

3. The per capita consumption of tissue products in Canada is 22kg/year.

4. The per capita consumption of tissue products worldwide is 3.4 kg/year

5. The average Canadian uses about 100 rolls of toilet paper each year. This is equal to approximately 4.6 km of paper.

How many asses do you people have?! I only have one and there's no way I change the TP roll every three days. Something is wrong with that stat.

Here's a survey for you:

How many guys buy high-quality multi-ply toilet paper (ie. Cottonelle etc.)?

My female roomate insists on buying this overpriced bleached to f*ck garbage that soaks up most of the water in the f*cking toilet! I've lived with many girls in the last 10 years and never have any of them felt the need to use anything but recycled PC brand TP. Apparently if you're not using multi-ply then there a chances you could leave some remnants behind which could cause infection.

To this I say BULLSHIT, learn to f*ckin' wipe yerself, and if necessary check yerself and wash yer hands. Don't be a fucking crybaby about going to the bathroom, it's mother nature. Take responsibility for yerself, instead of making an excuse and letting a more environmentally sound product take the rap.

Last time I bought TP I got the unbleached recycled stuff, which of course made me ask the obvious question 'Recycled from what?'

re: crappy toilet paper...guys, in case you're wondering, vaginas are quite sensitive and delicate. using newspaper-quality tp is just not an option. k?

for all of you that are not taking this seriously...
i hope you never have children because they're the ones who are going to pay, not to mention the already endangered species of wildlife that are disappearing before our f*cking eyes!

don't come on here and burn down the thread.
if you have nothing good to say then why say it?
(oh, and please don't answer that)

the reason i'm posting this is to try to educate people who may not know what is actually going on in the world.
if you haven't figured it out, it's really f*cking scary and pathetic.

make your own choices, yes, but please keep others in mind.

i mean, how can we be one without an other? your choices affect everyone, what goes around comes around...

you figure it out.
peace.

ps. check out the site and take the test to see really how intelligent you are...

I'm not dumping on the thread. People should know. But 100 rolls a year? That sounds a little exagerated.

I've been doing some good. I don't buy paper towels, I use washable cloths instead.

in case you haven't figured it out, people posting in this thread keeps it at the top so that others may read it and be edumacated. it's a symbiotic relationship, smartypants.

okay - so what is the solution? what should we do to minimise this? other than baby seals and your hands.
