Yeah, I was in the show. I was in the show for 21 days once – the 21 greatest days of my life. You know, you never handle your luggage in the show? Somebody else carries your bags. It was great. You hit white balls for batting practice, the ballparks are like cathedrals, the hotels all have room service, the women all have long legs and brains . . . and if Greenpeace and the NRDC get their way, the toilet paper will be beige and scratchy:
On Monday, Greenpeace for the first time issued a national guide for American consumers that rates toilet tissue brands on their environmental soundness. With the recession pushing the price for recycled paper down and Americans showing more willingness to repurpose everything from clothing to tires, environmental groups want more people to switch to recycled toilet tissue.
“No forest of any kind should be used to make toilet paper,” said Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist and waste expert with the Natural Resource Defense Council . . .
. . . Hershkowitz is pushing the high-profile groups he consults with, including Major League Baseball, to use only recycled toilet tissue.
If they’re really looking for environmentally-friendly options, they should probably consult George Brett.
