“The boreal forests that Kimberly-Clark gets its pulp from have been evolving since the last Ice Age, over 10,000 years ago, and have never been logged before,” Greenpeace officials said.

OMG, this is just so wrong!!
Well, looks like we add Kleenex
to the boycott list!
Thank you, Cher.

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half just to see'em.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.

Noted with happiness. Thank you. I remember a child growing up with handkerchiefs (sp), and I still give them as gifts.

I use Acme tissues. I don't know what they are made from but with my sinus problems, asthma, and chemical sensitivities I can't use most tissues. Many are fragranced or very rough on the nose. Couldn't use hankerchiefs because I use so many tissues. And then there is the soap and detergent problem. Many times I use a wash cloth with hot water to try to breath into. I haven't investigated the whole tissue thing, guess I have been working on all the chemicals in our products, baby products, cosmetics, etc. Linda
