Whats the Rip on Paper

Paper towels-Why do we NEED to use paper towels?  We don't Need Them-- wake up....... According to the NRDC-- 544,000 trees/year would be saved by using one less roll of papertowels or by using 100% recycled papertowels..paper products brands to AVOID:  Bounty, Viva, Kleenex, Puffs-These manufacturers haven't left their caves they are living in and still don't provide green paper manufacturing.  Wake up & recycle Bounty.we are harvesting 24 million metric tons of trees for virgin paper production each year.
