Printed or unprinted?

I dont understand why people create facial tissue or tissue rolls or hand towel with prints. It is probably just one of the strategic marketing strategies, but I still think to create those prints, it would have cost more to produce, thus cost more for customers to buy. It also could have increased the production's carbon offsets. What do you think? Will you still buy printed tissue rolls or hand towels considering they will just get used and flushed down the toilet or straight in the bin, just like unprinted ones?

Hi! I suppose they're meant to add beauty to the table or the bathroom or something. I don't think so. If the situation calls for paper napkins, it's informal, so who cares about prints on them. For me, my family or friends, linen napkins are lovely. I understand the inks used to "beautify" paper goods are difficult to biodegrade and can even be harmful to the environment, so why use them? Even toilet tissue doesn't need pretty designs for its utilitarian purpose, and I don't see why people buy such things, pay extra for them, and then flush them away. It's pretty silly to me.

i agree with you. whats the point of putting prints if you will flush this down the toilet anyway.
