    In many parts of Asia, water is used instead of toilet paper, either from a bucket in basic homes to water spray from nozzles in 4 star hotels and top end villas. It is more hygienic and saves on the use of paper.

    Dear Lynn,
    thanks for sharing the stunning statistics. I wonder, how many trees we could save, if we switched from paper greeting cards to eCards. An average household in America will mail out 28 christmas cards made of brand-new, chemically treated paper in the next few weeks, although there are low-stress eco-friendly alternatives. I give out eCards for free (http://1-gasvergleich.de/go-green/), because I think, that trees have a more essential task, absorbing and storing CO2, than just sending our wishes. Their carbon footprint is near zero and they save a lot of time, too. Unfortunately there is no digital toilet paper yet.
