Tell Major US Retailers: Don't Sell Rainforest Destruction E-mail

Greenpeace: "Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) has been driving Indonesian rainforest destruction at an alarming rate to make throw-away tissue products. This deforestation is not only polluting our climate, but also pushing wildlife like the Sumatran tiger towards extinction. With only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, every bit of its dwindling forest habitat matters.

"Here in the U.S., APP is trying to push its “Paseo” brand tissue products onto store shelves across the country. To do so, they are counting on people – and major retailers – to stay in the dark about the dirty secret behind their tissue products. But you can help us change that. Make sure retailers that are selling Paseo products, like Kmart, stop doing so, and that stores not selling it yet, like Walmart, don’t start!" >>Take Action


Eco Tip

Lower your thermostat temperature in winter and raise it in summer. In winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees or less during the day (and wear a sweater) and 55 degrees or less at night (and add an extra blanket). Wear less or use a fan instead of air-conditioning on all but the hottest summer days. When you must use air-conditioning, set your thermostat to 78 degrees or more.  More tips...

Eco Quote

How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life?  - Charles A. Lindbergh, Reader's Digest, November 1939   More quotes...
