Nonviolent paper is made from cotton, rice and banana peels
from corn husks, straw, coconut and other nut shells
from cow manure, elephant dung, durian rinds, and fallen leaves.

It need not be made by slaughtering trees.

Cutting trees is in the top 5 of the world's most dangerous occupations. Many human lives will be saved by going to more humane alternatives.

Paper made from fruit rinds, banana peels, coconut husks, nut shells is the most nonviolent because it does not come from machine harvesting in which small mammals,

ground nesting birds, frogs, bees etc are crushed and shredded.

In addition fruit tree papers are reforesting the world. It is not a recommendation for brutal slaughterhouses to mention cow manure. Hundreds of kinds of fruit can yield paper. Hundreds of mobile species including human beings have waste which can become paper.



Tree paper causes drought, floods, mudslides, global heating, destruction of animal habitat, smashing of squirrels and flightless birds, violation of sentient trees whose feelings were proven by Chandra Bose, inventor of the radio, knighted by Queen Victoria.



Cotton paper lasts 500 years, tree paper an average 60 years.



Categories of tree killers:

1. lumber companies

2. war (1 daisy cutter bomb can destroy 6 square acres of trees)

3. daily newspapers from NewsCorp and the NY Times to weekly and monthly papers

4. magazines

5. book publishers

6. toilet paper manufacturers

7. construction companies (buildings made of wood)

8. furniture companies

9. fast food outlets littering the world

10. Amazon and other mail order houses

11. Greeting card companies

12. telephone pole companies

13. Christmas wrapping paper companies

14. cardbpard bpx makers
