The Great American Paper Boycott is about halting deforestation.

The Great American Paper Boycott is about halting deforestation. Since 1937 when the American congress outlawed hemp fiber cultivation opening up the paper industry to a monopoly controlled by the timber companies, well over fifty percent of the world's forest have been cut down and made into paper.

This why we must now boycott the paper companies that have no intention of ending their radical environmentally destructive practices. International Paper and the paper industry in general are quickly transferring all their wood chipping operations to the third world instead of opening up their businesses to American farmed fibers such Hemp.

The fact is, big paper are only dabbling in alternative fibers in order paint a thin veneer of "Green" over their diabolical deliberate profit taking destruction of the world's forests. Putting off the responsibility of changing their practices to another generation of corporate bosses.

Vote by withholding your dollars from big paper and join this campaign. If we stop buying paper, big paper will have to change to get their market share
