Tell Costco: Protect the boreal forest

Every minute, a football field and a half of Canada's boreal forest is cut down -- in part, to make toilet paper.

The boreal forest is of incredible ecological importance to the entire planet. We shouldn't sacrifice one of North America's most ancient and important ecosystems for something we'll use once and flush away. As a major retailer of toilet paper, Costco has an opportunity to lead the industry away from deforestation and toward sustainable sources.

By committing to sustainable sourcing for its toilet paper products, Costco can take an important step toward protecting this crucial forest.
