Aspen Kicks Kleenex Off the Mountain

In a letter released March 7, Aspen Skiing Company, host to the World Cup ski circuit, notified paper giant Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB) that it has removed the company’s tissue products from all Aspen ski mountains, hotels, restaurants. The company also removed all references to the “Kleenex Corner” ski run on Aspen Mountain which has been in place for over 40 years. The decision comes following discussions between the ski resort company and Greenpeace about Kimberly-Clark, manufacturer of Kleenex branded products, and their refusal to end pulp purchases from destructive logging operations in Canada’s Boreal Forest.

Nothing like an imperialist ski company that uses plastic tags, blows snow, uses diesel to groom its denuded slopes to call the kettle black! Besides, Kleenex is the only brand that stands up to outside weather. My ski cap is off to the hypocrites! It's the limosine liberals at their best!
