Almost entirely at the prodding of Dr. Wife, MD, we've taken many measures around our house to reduce our environmental impact. We buy mostly local organic produce and meats. We compost to reduce waste. We use only non-toxic, all-natural cleaning products and soaps. Of course, we drive a grease-powered car. And we also use toilet tissue that comes from 100-percent recycled paper--to reduce the need to chop down trees. "So," you might ask, "is it cottony soft?" Let's just say that I sit kind of funny, now--but it's my small sacrifice for a better planet.
I do admit that sometimes I linger on the toilet, wondering if I'm nearly alone in taking the cause to this extreme, or if Al Gore's butt is chapped, too.
