So very true. But if people would just plant more trees it could be in part counteracted. Maybe we should go back to packaging paper products with more paper and strings like in the old days.
After all, plastic is a fairly recent invention right? People are not going to live without their paper products. So we need to find ways to reuse it.

The creation of paper goods still damage our environment, even if you are able to compost when you are done with them. Everything from the trees being cut down, the processing of the pulp, plastic packaging and transporting them to the stores you buy them at!
