While eating lunch, a girl discovers an interesting conundrum: the more napkins she uses, the more rapidly the tree outside shrinks!
Fortunately a paper-savvy lumberjack appears and educates the woman about how wasting paper products can be harmful to trees and the environment. Imagine this, for all of the napkins used, you have to say goodbye to trees and even entire forests!

Luckily, Mr. Lumberjack has some interesting ideas on how to save paper. He suggests that you use:
Your sleeves or your hair. Gross!
As humans, we depend on trees because they serve as carbon reservoirs: they take in CO2 from the atmosphere and convert it to oxygen, which we then breathe. So how can we save trees and continue to breathe?

-Use fewer disposable napkins
-Recycle to avoid wasting paper products like paper towels or notebook paper
