Dear devotees,

Recently this has beenon my mind quite a lot. Hopefully some of you have some feedback.

Srila Prabhupada is very strong on keeping trees alive. Unfortunately most of the paper production is straightly from the cutting of masses of trees. Though a small percentage is also produced from receycled paper (which doesnt go on continuously, because after a few times receycling, the paper quality becomes under standard so then they need new wood pulp), and as well other materials like stone, but still the vast majority of paper production is from wood.

What are your (practical) thoughts on this? How can we stay aloof from this sinful act, and not silently approve with it, by using paper, which has been so much interwoven in western culture.
Of course same applies for anything else from wood.

Thank you
