Nearly half of the United States population, 150 million other American adults, are coffee drinkers.

Now think about the cups. Unless youíre drinking your brew at home, youíre likely picking up your java in a paper cup to go.

And thatís the problem across the world: nearly 16 billion paper to-go cups are used every year, which leads to 6.5 million trees being cut down and 4 billion gallons of water being wasted. The inside of most paper to-go cups is also coated in a thin layer of plastic, making them unrecyclable.

Foam for coffee cups here often, trees are a renewable resource plastic and foam are the problem way more then paper. Tree cutting support wildlife clear cuts create maximum growth in area feeding wildlife for years to come.

I'm ok with paper cups. You may be able to get compostable cups.

I'm very pro paper. I'm one of the few that still asks for my groceries to be bagged in paper.

I work at a paper mill so I'm very pro paper and logging. Lot of your coffee cups have a percentage of recycled paper in them.

If you cut a tree down, many new trees quickly compete to fill their space. The leading killer of little trees is shade and competition from larger trees.

Once they spray the vision on the clearcuts nothing will live there-it is a dead landscape for at least 50 to 60 years until the conifer monoculture can support any wildlife.
Then they cut it again at 80.

the wife has cloth grocery bags folds them up when we put away groceries and brings them to the store each week and I have had the same coffee cup for 6 or 7 years.

reducing consumption just isn't popular with very many , we could learn a lot and did from our Depression era family.

Waste not , Want not

I may heat with wood but I seldom need to cut any healthy trees with all the EAB and storm damage around.

I don't really care what the moonbats think... But I use the same travel mug every day. Too cheap to shell out cash all the time for disposable cups.

I have a 107 acre farm inside city limits of 10k population. Far and away plastic sacks and plastic bottles are THE trash to be found. Landlord gets on me to keep field edges mowed...NOPE! The weeds are renewable annual trash fence.

I too heat with wood.
Not all cases are the same but.....
I only cut living trees, to primarily thin for more growth on remaining trees, secondarily it yeilds more growth of plants on forest floor which is better for wildlife and third because cutting dead trees is bad for wildlife.

We will need to find ways to remove all the dead black ash we have over here. Lot of the lower spots with muck type soils don't freeze up hard many years. Just way too many to leave out there from my perspective. Some woodlots are 60-70% dead right now. If the estimate is correct they estimate over 600 million ash trees in WI and I don't know if that includes all the ash trees that were planted in the cities and towns over the last 20-40 years.

it is fine to cut live trees , I just seldom need to to get enough wood.
thinning and maintenance cutting makes a productive woods for habitat , timber production , lumber are all good and needed.

we get painted as tree killers , but we really are not is what I was saying even when we take trees that are not diseased , damaged , badly leaning or dead they usually have a purpose or reason.

Paper is renewable, recyclable (although often this is a feel good measure, it takes less resources and less money to make new paper, paperback books doubled in price under Clinton because he signed a law requiring them to be made out of at least 50% recycled paper) and decomposable. Personally I don't like drinking out of paper or foam, but then I make my own coffee and carry it in a thermos anyways, they don't have coffee shops where I spend my time.

I do always use paper bags rather than plastic at the grocery store.

Antis cannot see past the end of their nose they want to ban everything that will not have a impact on their lives with no thought of the final outcomes.

Yíall keep consuming wood products, Iíll keep planting trees. I figure I will oversee planting somewhere around 11-12 million seedlings this year. The timber industry really has so many positive inputs to our society, from providing jobs to providing recreation opportunities to promoting environmental stewardship, just too numerous to list them all.

You bring your own paper bags, or do grocery stores in Idaho still offer them? I've not seen a grocery store on the east coast offer paper bags in over 20 years.

I work at a farm stand and we've been trying to use up 5000 paper bags the owners used to cover tomatoes with during a frost this spring. 100% of the customers look at the paper bags, then ask for plastic. I tell them paper is all we have. 80% of them forego the bag and make 2-3 trips to the car, grumbling about us not having plastic, rather than using a paper one. I don't get it.
