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. In fact, the Canadian boreal forest is the world’s most carbon-dense forest. Yet according to NRDC’s research, more than a million acres of this irreplaceable forest are clearcut each year, much of which is used to make throw-away tissue products 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 any of the brands listed in the A or B column of the scorecard below, or other recycled paper products. Use the scorecard to choose more climate-friendly paper products that don’t contribute to the destruction of virgin Canadian boreal forests:
