We get a lot more from the forest than just paper and lumber! We get goopy stuff, too. Chemicals to be exact. And these chemicals go into such products as medicine, shoe polish, foam rubber, toothpaste, and much more. One tree-based product is a food thickener that is used in cream-filled snack foods!

Tree-based chemicals also are in make-up. Which means that your mom could be wearing a tree right now!
