Kudos to those companies that have removed this product from their stores, let's hope the rest of them follow suit!

I read about this in the WWF focus magazine awhile back. We really need to get those companies that are destroying the forest for toilet paper to stop! Hopefully they will open their eyes soon and end this. Thanks for sharing Cher.

This sort of thing has been going on for many, many years. I agree with Lindsey that "We really need to get those companies that are destroying the forest for toilet paper to stop".

Thanks, it is useful to know which companies to avoid and which to buy from. Pity it concerns the American market only though. Deforestation is a huge problem that needs addressing as it means the destruction of environment and critical habitats of endangered species. It is saddening to hear that every-day items such as toilet paper are made unsustainably -- this must stop being the case. It is important that people become conscious of this and conscientious upon purchase.

Its said that 20,000 to 40,000 or about or equal to this figure depending on where you are living, spends this on toilet paper alone!!!

We work so hard to get this money, then we pay people to help cut down trees and then we buy toilet paper and needless paper products to throw away or wipe our ...on it.

Unless they are marketed under another name here in Italy, they are not sold here....
Plenty of other brands - as Michela states, I wonder???????
