Save the Tigers
I think I spend more time thinking about tigers than most people. I've been working on a play for the past year which has a Bengal tiger as one of the leading characters. And in my tiger ruminations, I've often wondered what I, a poor New York City playwright, can do to help tigers. And last month, I found out in an article in WWF Focus.
The Sumatran tiger is under siege from a paper company, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP). They are clear-cutting forests in Sumatra that are tigers' habitat. There are two brands of toilet paper sold in the US that utilize Asia Pulp & Paper: Paseo and LIVI. Help a tiger- don't buy Paseo or LIVI toilet paper.
