About a year ago (has it really been that long?), there was
some discussion on techwr-l and copyediting-l about
alternatives to paper based on dead trees. Despite being an
unofficial forest industry apologist, I do keep track of
alternative resources. Here are two you might want to
investigate (details in the Sept. 96 issue of _Publish_,
page 24):

Conservatree (415-433-1000) provides a catalog of some 400
tree-free and recycled papers plus details on how they were
produced (e.g., bleaching process).

Le Desktop (602-991-7270, 1-800-533-3758) offers "Lager"
paper made entirely from hops, barley, and recycled beer
bottle labels. (But you do have to designate a driver...)
