How to Stop Tree Cutting


Want to do something yourself that will really help the environment? Stop loggers from cutting down trees. Over 50 million acres of land is deforested each year, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Although many governments have been talking for years about halting deforestation, talk just won't do it. People use up resources from trees each day, and countries feel that they must provide their citizens with these resources. To stop loggers from cutting trees, we must take the indirect approach - stop using up paper and other resources that come from trees.

  • Go virtual. Pay your bills online. Read magazines and newspapers online instead of subscribing to their hard copy versions. Also read e-books when possible.

  • Recycle, recycle, recycle. It may be the same old line, but it really is one of the strongest ways to stop tree cutting. Better yet, buy goods made with recycled paper to support the companies who value the trees.

  • If you need to print something, use double-sided printing.

  • Borrow books from the library or swap books with friends rather than buying them.

  • Save scrap paper. Reuse it as many times as is practical.

  • Send faxes online rather than through a fax machine.

  • Use towels and rags to mop up spills rather than paper towels and napkins.

Tips & Warnings

  • Buy recycled paper whenever possible.
