"It's like the Hummer product for the paper industry," said Allen Hershkowitz, senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council. "We don't need old-growth forests . . . to wipe our behinds."
I don't want to know what this guy's hygiene is like. He's probably one of those filthy hippy-types you see up around Boulder (or was before he found a job in the Enviro "industry", as if that's really a valid field of production.)
Why do some people feel the need to tell me what's best for me? Who knows better than me, what's best for me?!
If manufacturers are forced to make only one ply, thin stuff, we'll just use 2-3 times as much of it to ... er, uh ... "get the job done", so what's the savings?! It's like these damn low flow toilets that are everywhere now. You have to flush them twice and sometimes more just to get them to work. Low flow shower heads are the same problem. They make you spend several extra minutes in the shower just to work yourself into a good lather, then it takes twice as long to rinse off and get the shampoo and conditioner out of your hair. How is that saving water?!
I tell ya what, if you want one ply, you buy the one ply. I will buy what I think is best for me, my family and my butt. BUTT OUT!
