Tissue Paper

The names Kleenex, Puffs, Charmin, Cottonelle, and Bounty all have one thing in common. No, it isn't the fact that they're all disposable paper products, but rather that they all use "virgin fiber" in their products. Basically, that means that entire forests are being cut down just so someone can blow their nose into it.

That's certainly unnecessary, considering the amount of alternatives there are. Companies can use post-consumer fiber in their products instead of virgin fiber! We, as consumers, have been naive enough to purchase these name-brand products, but it is time for us to stop. Stay away from those companies until they begin using post-consumer fiber in their products, and wipe your nose with a different brand.
