* 3-6 billion trees are cut down each year
* 35% are used to manufacture paper products
* Trees that are 200 years old are transformed into garbage.
* Deforestation causes 35% of global greenhouse gas emissions
Can you really get present to that? Each year millions of pounds of highly toxic chemicals are released into the air and water from papermaking plants around the world… Still with me? Even though replacing natural forest with tree farms creates a relatively reliable source of wood pulp, 90% of the species contained in a natural forest are obliterated in the process! In addition, the conversion of forests to tree farms leads to a radical loss of freshwater, air quality and soil cohesion.
What does all this mean?...
It means we get the opportunity to make choices that can drastically shift this path of destruction to a path of rejuvination.
