Save a Tree...Pay The Cashier.

Does anybody here try to consistently use recycled products? How is that working for you?

I'm wondering what to do when we move. The nearest place we can consistently get earth conscious products is a 40 minute drive. My husband has this weird issue with being able to buy more than a few days worth of items.

We used to have the strangest arguements about buying groceries; he could not comprehend that, while grocery bills seem high, buying food on a daily basis or getting carry-out was more expensive. I got hoarse from explaining that he eats every day and will continue to eat every pay the damned cashier! He just feels more comfortable nickel and diming the money away.

My point is that there is no way I can see him buying TP and paper products in the bulk we need without hyperventilating. I'l have to give a modified version of the grocery argument: You wiped your ass today, you will wipe your ass tomorrow -- pay the cashier.

The whole thing with recycled products is they ARE getting better, and I think they're worth buying, but they still are not quite cottony soft. I think it's an interesting topic what personal comforts people will and will not give up for the greater good.
