As long as the demand is there, this kind of thing will go on. Everyone needs to recycle as much as possible and learn to be satisfied with a bit less. There are so many of us and we are a greedy lot.
If we help to remove the demand for wood pulp, more trees will be saved.
The other thing that needs to happen is that every tree cut down should be replaced with two new trees planted.

Oh, it's not the demand driving it? It's the suppliers! Oh darn those Indonesian loggers, providing wood pulp for so cheap! What can one do when the invisible hand of the market forces one to act against their own consciences! What is a corporate producer of secondary product to do?

Very good paper can be made from hemp (even cloths and many other things). It can be grown easily and quickly and we could then save cutting all our trees down for paper. But since hemp(marijuna) is illigal, this will not be done. This is a crime. Hemp can be so useful people only seem to know about getting high from it. In any case I believe it should be legalized and taxed severly. Then the government can profit from it and stop spending so much money trying to irridicate it. And maybe we wouldn't have to cut down all our rainforests and boreal forests!

If things continue as they are going this planet may someday go beyond the point of recovery.

Anyone who has seen what state the forests are in should not believe what they are saying. They are dealing with companies whose sense of ethics is as deeply mired in crap as APP's. Most id not all don't want to know the truth. and once again the land and the animals suffer for it.
