To the editor:
Our forests in southeastern North Carolina are the most bio-diverse temperate forests in the world; once we lose them, we lose them forever.
Yum! Brands, which owns Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell and other fast food companies, buys their paper packaging from big southern mills. Huge tracts of land are deforested to feed that demand.
Fast food packaging ends up either on our roadsides (equaling 20 percent of that litter) or in our landfills.
In North Carolina, 15 percent of landfill waste comes from our food packaging industry.
