Use Hankies!

O.K. so the word "hanky" conjures up visions of 1930's unemployed farm workers trolling the streets for free biscuits, but I have succeeded in putting all that behind me.  Once I learned that my tissue habit was contributing to the clearing of ancient Canadian forests, I had to put the ca-bash on dependency.  Kleenex has been renamed Kleercut in certain circles in the know.  Kleenex's argument: people want strong tissues and recycled fibers don't cut it.  Add this to the problem of sewer's overflowing into natural bodies of water when it rains because the systems are overtaxed and the problem of too much waste going into our landfills and this was a no-brainer. 

How did I get over the glamor of Kleenex?
