    If you're looking for a Kleenex on the Rice University campus in the near future, you'll be out of luck. Students at the highly rated university in Houston have convinced campus officials to quit buying Kleenex products in favor of products that include recycled material and exclude material from trees cut from North America's largest ancient forest — the Boreal forest that stretches from Alaska through Canada. "It was an initiative that students involved in various environmental groups started," Kyle Saari, a sophomore earth science major at Rice, said today. "We simply showed our purchasing (department) that there are cheaper...

    Toronto-- Don’t reach for a Kleenex next time you feel a sneeze coming on or try to stifle your sniffles with a Kleenex tissue, because you’re helping to kill off an ancient forest. That’s the latest Greenpeace message for tissue-dependent consumers. Your runny nose could also be doing in the caribou, an endangered species. Accusing Kleenex manufacturer Kimberly-Clark of clearcutting ancient forests, including Canada’s Boreal forest, Greenpeace activists turned up in full regalia at the company’s Canadian headquarters in Mississauga on Tuesday. Playing the role of police at a crime scene, Greenpeace’s "Forest Crimes Unit" cordoned off areas of company...

"Through research, we learned that it's increasingly important to consumers to protect their families against common cold and flu viruses," said Robert P. van der Merwe, group president for Kimberly-Clark's North Atlantic Family Care division. While the tissues won't help individuals who already have...
