World forests being flushed down the toilet

As global population grows and access to sanitation improves, the world's forests are "under assault" from paper companies competing to respond to growing consumer demand for toilet tissue, the only paper product that cannot be recycled after use, writes the Worldwatch Institute. "Steadily increasing demand for toilet paper in developing countries is a critical factor in the impact that toilet paper manufacturers have on forests around the world," writes Noelle Robbins in the latest issue of World Watch magazine, published by the Worldwatch Institute think-tank.
