A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

We are used to the nice puppy which appears on TV advertising Scottex, one of the products of one of the biggest destroyers of ancient forests in the world: Kimberly-Clark. Greenpeace have been fighting the policy of the company since at least 2004 and, finally, both have got an agreement thanks to which by the end of 2011, Kimberly will begin to carry out a greener policy which takes into account the FSC policy (100% FSC? Who knows!).

I leave you a Greenpeace's video against the company which squatters this post and some more related links.

The links:

Despite what I have said, I have my own compromise with the forests:
  • Fisrt, I ask myself if it is completely necessary to use paper.
  • Second, in case I finally needed paper, I'd use recycled for everything and in case it wasn't possible because of circumstancies, I would try to find some made from other sustanaible sources like FSC (the most restrictive) or PFEC among others.

That's all for today friends.

A Stop On The Trail

This late on in the summer, I don't know if there will be somebody going for a round by here and as I like having readers updated, I would like to tell them that is very probable not to have the blog updated on a regular basis up to middle of September. Circumstancies at present don't allow me to access to the Net on a regular basis given that I am in the middle of nowhere involved in an environmental issue. In any case, I will try to do my best to post something from time to time.

Greetings to everybody and have a nice summer.
