Deal$ Tigers Don't Like

A dollar store called Deal$ is advertising Paseo bath tissue this week in its newspaper circular.  Paseo is the brand that the World Wildlife Fund claims is sourced from rainforests in Indonesia, threatening tigers there, a fact I discovered after I bought some of their paper towels.

Perhaps this is a good sign and the dollar store got a "deal" itself on the bath tissue since so many stores don't want them (Paseo has been dropped by a number of retailers, including Kmart).  Similar to my experience, if the product is already made though, then why not use it?  Oasis Brands, the company that makes Paseo, might be dropping the brand name (they no longer list it among their brands), but they have to dispose of the remaining stock.

Whatever happens to Paseo, more significant is that the company claims to be finding a better source for its paper supply.

If so, the tigers thank them.
