Greenpeace has launched an attatck on Boots and Somerfield, labelling them eco-villains for failing to make their bog paper environmentally friendly.
The Independent has this:
“Boots, the country’s largest chemist chain, stocks only one environmentally friendly tissue product despite promising in 1992 to source its timber and paper products from well-managed forests, according to Greenpeace, which described its behaviour as “completely inadequate”.
Somerfield, the sixth-largest supermarket chain, had a “terrible” record, said the pressure group. The chain told Greenpeace it had no plans to start using forest-friendly fibre and was not available for comment yesterday. Boots said it was committed to responsible sourcing but acknowledged that it could improve the certification of its wood, paper and pulp.”
