1000 Flowers for the Planet - #486 Use Recycled Toilet Paper
In Australia we flush about 6 million trees down the toilet every year by using toilet paper made from virgin materials. We can prevent this from happening if we switch to using recycled toilet paper. This will keep trees in the ground, where they provide habitat for so many creatures: wombats, bilbies, birds, insects, possums, lizards, echidnas – the list goes on and on. Recycled toilet paper is made from waste products such as office paper and old textbooks. It’s easy to switch, you’ll get a product just as soft as any other and you’ll be supporting your local wildlife. Our zoos have asked us to do this [http://www.zoo.org.au/get-involved/act-for-wildlife/wipe-for-wildlife] so let’s get cracking and do the right thing.
