Getting lots and lots of press releases in the run up to Earth Day
. Too many, in fact, to fit into my next two columns. So I’m adding some extra stuff here. In the paper product category, Kruger Products, which makes Sponge Towels and Scotties
facial tissues under the name EnviroCare, has just launched a line of 100 per cent recycled, premium-quality paper products that are competitively priced.They all bear the EcoLogo
symbol, a North American wide environmental standard and certification mark. Here’s my little eco-tip — don’t forget that soiled tissues and paper towels , which you use sparingly, of course, should be disposed of in the green bin, rather than tossed in the garbage. I have little mini waste bins from Umbra
in my bathrooms and bedrooms for just that purpose. They look fine and take up hardly any space. I’d also admit to carrying a hankie in my purse instead of tissue, but the last time I wrote that publicly, an angry reader told me I must be a crazed and dangerous bundle of germs. Or something like that. But I still carry my little hankie from Grassroots
. Crazed? Perhaps. Dangerous? I think not.
