Declining Forests

I don’t know what hurts me more the fact that we are wasteful, or the fact that we are killing our trees for our own personal use. Everyday we use the trees for paper, toilet paper, homes, furniture and other material things. Killing the trees effects the animals, water, air and humans. What are we doing to stop this? There are other alternatives for humans to live a comfortable life without hurting the environment. I read this article about the forests declining globally and it breaks my heart to see the earth being destroyed by us.
