PEANUTS, ANYONE?

PEANUTS, ANYONE?

Old boxes accumulate fast,

From mail order warehouses vast…

Foam peanuts will

End in landfills,

Where birds eat them as their last.

HOW ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND?

HOW ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND?

 

Paper towels bought on the cheap,

How does it make sense to reap…

Using paper that’s bleached–

Wouldn’t this be impeached?

Affecting the woodland deep?

Reusable chlorine may be able

To not over-affect a water table…

Does unbleached cost more,

Then what is it for,

Is the market that unstable?

“Brown” toilet paper I’ve seen,

In a doctor’s office for getting clean…

But businesses all around

Suddenly changed from brown

To white paper towels, or is it me…!
