When people hear the term “Tree-Free” they automatically think, “Oh, you mean recycled?” What people don’t realize is that there is a drastic difference in how Tree-Free™ and recycled products are made. Knowing the health benefits alone would stop you in your tracks and make you reconsider everyday products that you use. Products such as paper towels, paper plates, and cups, to name a few. Here are the facts:
* A virgin material is a material that has not been previously used or consumed, or been subjected to processing other than for its original production, like that of recycled materials.
The next time you are at the store, take a moment to look at the packaging of the products you are buying. Don’t forget that Tree-Free™ products have health benefits for you too, not just the environment.
