Despite butting heads with Apple in the past, Greenpeace is jumping on the iPhone bandwagon with an app based on their Recycled Tissue and Toilet Paper Guide.
Essentially, the app gives iPhone users a quick and handy guide to finding the greenest toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, and paper napkins sold at the supermarket. Ideally, the best products contain 100 percent recycled content (at least 50 percent of which is from post-consumer materials) and avoid the use of chlorine or chlorine compounds in the whitening process. Products that meet this criteria include Green Forest, Natural Value and Seventh Generation while products from companies like Kleenex, Charmin, Angel Soft, Cottonelle, Brawny, and Scott fall short.
Oh yes…there’s an app for that. Thankfully, it’s also free. And don’t forget that Mother Earth cries when you use too much TP. Conserve paper by wiping with one square—both sides. [iTunes]
