Wheat paper vs Recycled Paper?

Postby LadyAoftheshire » 07 Oct 2010, 06:43

Hello all,

I was in my local stationary store recently and saw some "wheat paper" on the shelf. I'm just trying to decide if it would be more environmentally friendly than recycled paper?

Thoughts?

Perhaps a side question.....

How good does the wheat paper taste?

I know its not the same but it is sort-of related, when I found sheep poo paper (http://www.sheeppoopaper.com/) but I couldn't help but laugh when I noticed that the envelopes they made were gummed...
