A couple of years ago I noted that supplies of recycled (facial) tissues were getting more scarce. But I was able to keep buying the Safe brand at Coles in Caulfield until just recently, when they stopped stocking them. Or maybe they stopped receiving them some time ago, and they’ve finally run out. Recycled toilet paper is still easy to find.
See, I have a problem with the idea that we should be chopping down trees to make stuff to wipe our arses on or collect snot with. It’s a waste. And while for nasal use, handkerchiefs can be better sometimes, they’re not always convenient.
So I’ll keep hunting. Coles Online shows nothing, but it appears that Safeway HomeShop still has Naturale brand (at $2.47 for 250 tissues, plus up to $9.95 delivery fee). But since I don’t normally do my grocery shopping online (the supermarket is five minutes’ walk from my house — why would I bother?), that’s hardly very convenient or cost-effective.
Anybody know any other sources of recycled tissues? My stash is running out…
