HELP SAVE FORESTS BY SWITCHING TO RECYCLED PAPER PRODUCTS!

The Canadian boreal forest is the largest intact forest in the world, holding immense value for the climate, Indigenous Peoples, and other species. Yet this irreplaceable forest is under severe threat from logging, much of which is used for tissue pulp for the U.S. market.

There is a much better alternative! According to NRDC, “tissue products made from recycled materials are far more sustainable because they do not rely on clearcutting forests and they emit one-third the greenhouse gases as tissue products made from virgin fiber.”

Take action by switching to Green ForestSeventh Generation, or other recycled brands. Use the scorecard below to choose more climate-friendly paper products that don’t contribute to the destruction of virgin Canadian boreal forests:

PLEDGE TO VOTE FOR THE CLIMATE!

The climate needs your vote! Not just in presidential elections, but in small elections too. By signing this pledge to vote, created by the Environmental Voter Project, you voice your commitment to be a consistent voter, and you’ll get reminders before every election!

PLEDGE TO VOTE FOR THE CLIMATE!

Why is this pledge important? (from the Environmental Voter Project)

  1. Environmentalists don’t vote as often as they should. When you sign this pledge, you’re sending a loud message that you’re going to start voting your values.
  2. We’ll send you reminders to help you show up to every election. Studies have shown that these simple, free reminders can help you be a much more consistent voter.
  3. Are you already a perfect voter? Please sign the pledge anyway! The more people who pledge to vote, the easier it is to convince others to join you!
