Eco-Friendly My Ass!!!

Had a load of "100% recycled" paper products the other day. Problem was, the load came all the way from New Jersey to Florida!!! The amount of fuel used to ship it, far outweighed any benefit of the recycling. It would have been much better (ecologically) to have a non-recycled product coming from a Florida paper plant. Yet, some buyers of the product are going to feel sooo good about paying MORE for a product to do their part to help the environment (I roll my eyes).
