Soft paper products are usually made from a high percentage of recycled paper. Each time natural fibers are recycled, they become shorter and shorter. After 5-7 times through the recycling process, paper fibers are too short to be recycled again- however- these fibers are the perfect length for rapid composting! Compost your soft paper products or avoid them entirely with reusable options. Think about it- for all of modern human history until recently people used cloth for cleaning up their messes and wiping their hands.
