There's been a popular statement made by people refusing a paper bag for their goods. When the paper bag is presented, the client will refuse it and end their refusal with, "Save a tree." Since paper bags are made from trees, refusing the bag is expected to somehow keep store surplus high so they don't have to order more bags from suppliers who'll have retained greater surplus over time and factories will somehow cut production and less trees will be cut down. These clients have never refused wood beams to the homes built for them to go to after shopping.
