Bear vs. paper.

Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking

The museum has several exhibits on the history and technology of papermaking. My favorite exhibit is the life-sized cut-out of a Kodiak bear. A sign next to the bear explains that the average Kodiak bear weighs 650 pounds, but that the average person in the USA uses more than 650 pounds of paper per year.
