But... (and this is going to raise some eyebrows) why?
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!

Fantastic piano playing!!! I don't believe I've ever heard Chopsticks played like that before.

Wanna hear something funny? Most of Japan's disposable chopsticks are made in the US. Japan even sends shiploads of of cedar trees to Oregon, USA where they are milled down into disposable chopsticks, and shipped back to Japan.

Ugh. Reduce is the first of the three R's not recycle. Just think of the energy consumed in producing that much paper and the land we kill the habitat for animals for. That is my pet peeve. Recyling is not going to save us.

Having just read Frankenstein, I thought I'd offer up the original film adaptation. It has a much happier ending than Mary Shelley's novel.
