Georgia Pacific Clear-Cuts The Forest

brawny.jpgWhile reading about Georgia-Pacific's pollution record on Wisconsin's Fox River, it became all too clear why there's so much money being spent in Wisconsin elections. G-P, maker of the popular Brawny brand of paper towels is a Koch subsidiary and has a less than stellar record in regard to PCB dumping. And I think it's clear the Koch is an advocate of less government regulation - particularly the EPA and their costly meddling.

But what troubles me the most is how G-P has clear-cut the forest that used to stand tall behind the iconic Brawny Man. While he's gone through several make-overs, he always seemed to be proudly affirming his lumberjack roots.

Perhaps he now wants us to forget that paper towels come from trees and the process of making them can actually be killing us. Actually, I have no idea whether the process of making paper towels creates PCBs or any other pollutant, but it does seem rather telling that those tall pines are gone.

Just use a freakin' cloth towel
