I'm here to bring attention about a certain brand name we may use while unknowingly supporting destruction, deforestation and endangering our fellow Earthlings! Please consider joining the pledge to not purchase Reflex paper until Australian Paper cease sourcing their pulp from our native forests, in particular they're in the act of destroying Victoria's Central Highlands forests which is home to the endangered Leadbeater's Possum.

For more info please check the links above and don't forget to sign the petition!

P.S: Don't forget to get your company/organisation in on to this too!

To me, ethical paper is exactly the same as ethical meat.. None of it's REALLY ethical.. Things are being destroyed/ killed.. The paper comes from tree's, animals live in trees.. We need trees to breathe and live. Blah blah blah. I know its the whole "how far can you go"

But.. There's no such thing as ethical paper

Too true sad
But we can still try, nonetheless, to lessen our damage.
I only hoped to bring attention to the havoc being caused by one of the bigger paper brands, and hope that in doing so I may help others consider other brands producing with a little more conscience.

To everyone else that's commented & reconsidered so far, thank you.
