Forests flushed down the toilet.

Huntsville, Ontario

On February 12, four Greenpeace activists locked themselves together at the headquarters of Kimberly-Clark to demand that the company stop destroying Canada's boreal forest. The environmental organization wants Kimberly-Clark to dramatically increase its use of recycled fiber. Police arrested the activists and later released them after charging them with mischief. The company says it has a corporate policy against logging in Canada's forest and refuses to meet with Greenpeace.
