"Since when is 40 percent a passing grade?
While I understand the negotiating process, Greenpeace

Since 1950, Marcal
has been a pioneer in the paper recycling movement, making its consumer paper products from paper- not from trees.
All manufacturing is sourced from paper collected curbside in blue bins, from junk mail and from printer waste.
Marcal CEO Tim Spring is available to speak about the company's Small Steps(TM) line of high performing, affordable toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and tissue, the recycled paper industry, and why "sustainable forestry" is not a good enough alternative to using 100 percent recycled paper for making household paper.
