A GREAT reason to use recycled paper products!

Because one of the biggest makers of non-recycled paper products in the U.S., Georgia Pacific, is owned by Koch Industries, one of the major players behind the union-busting going on in Wisconsin and other states.

Here is a list of paper products to boycott:

Bath Tissue

Angel Soft®
Quilted Northern Ultra Plush®
Quilted Northern Soft & Strong®
Soft n' Gentle®

Cups & Tableware

Dixie®
Insulair®
PerfecTouc­h®
Ultra™
Vanity Fair®

Napkins

Mardi Gras®
Vanity Fair®
Zee®

Paper Towels

Brawny®
Mardi Gras®
Sparkle®
Zee®

So, how about some good alternatives?

CVS 100% recycled paper products
Safeway's Bright Green paper products
Trader Joe's
Marcal
Seventh Generation

All of the above are 100% recycled. Marcal and Seventh Generation can be a little pricey unless you get them on sale, but CVS recycled, Safeway's Bright Green, and Trader Joe's are all very affordable.
