Why save paper? It's a renewable resource. We are NOT running out of it. We are NOT cutting down hardwood forests for paper. We are using softwood grown especially for paper, pencils, plywood, etc. We ARE planting more trees every year (that mature in three years) than we cut. Trees are no different than pineapples (which take two years to grow a single one.) They are a renewable crop. We are not running out of them and never will. Sorry, but this is one of my pet peeves.

(Mods... Please feel free to move this to the Vent and Rant thread if needed.)

Don't forget about chopsticks! Never could figure out why anyone would want to use the plastic ones!
