Shop smart: Paper products

13 eco-friendly sources of everyday paper goods

Our appetite for paper products is insatiable. All the facial tissues, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, computer paper, bank statements and other disposable items we use in day-to-day life really add up. Even worse, many of these products come from ancient or endangered forests, such as Canada’s unique boreal forest. You can help reduce the demand. According to Greenpeace, if every household in Canada replaced just one roll of toilet paper made from virgin fibres with one made from recycled paper, we could save 47,962 trees! Green Living wants to help you shop smart. Click through for 13 paper product brands and retailers that get our environmental stamp of approval.
