Together, they will honor King's legacy of tolerance, peace, and equality by meeting community needs and making the holiday "A day ON, not a day OFF."
Paper producers including Kimberly-Clark - the maker of Cottonelle, Scott, Kleenex and Viva tissue paper products - are forcing the destruction of our continent's forests, and devastating the habitat for countless wildlife species in the process. Kimberly-Clark, and others, could change their policies and make use of recycled fiber, but instead choose to buy untouched pulp from those who log deep in North American forests. If Americans choose more environmentally based tissue products, we could help expedite Kimberly-Clark's adoption of recycled fibers.
