Upset about the death of the climate bill? Now it's the time to make sustainable choices!

Now when the climate bill is officially dead, this video,which is from 2008 and talks about our responsibility as producers and consumers to make sustainable choices when it comes to paper, is relevant than ever.

It's sad that Washington can't find the political will to incentivize sustainable choices and push the economy to the right direction, but it doesn't mean that we can't do anything in the meantime. This video reminds us of our options when it comes to paper and the consequences of continuing the business as usual status quo.

This video is from the excellent resource The Secret Life of Paper - A Project of Inform, Inc.

How is paper production related to forest destruction and global warming? Why is recycling and buying recycled paper important?
