Many grocery stores, big box stores and online retailers now offer bathroom tissue, paper towels, and paper knapkins made of “post-consumer” content (recycled paper). The same products can also be purchased at top online superstores, like Amazon.com, Target and Walmart.
Though some stores charge a bit more for green paper products, my view is that I’d rather give my money to a manufacturer who is environmentally responsible than to one who is not.
Smart retailers stock items according to consumer demand rather than political interest or manufacturer pressure.
When more people purchase paper goods made from recycled paper, retailers are more likely to reorder recycled paper products regularly, thereby increasing demand for supplies made of post-consumer-content, an effect that should ultimately create lower pricing.
