Paper Reduction and Recycling

The Houston Zoo uses paper made of recycled materials for our admission tickets. Reduce your use of paper to save forests that bears need to survive.

Easy Action

The Houston Zoo only uses toilet paper made from recycled content, and you can help animals by doing the same!Did you know that the average household uses 120 rolls of toilet paper each year? 27,000 trees are cut down every single day to provide toilet paper for the world. These trees are important habitat for animals like chimpanzees, wombats, and black bears.

Using recycled paper created by our friends at New Leaf, we are continuing our efforts to save forests and the animals that live in it—like local black bears!
