    According to one estimate, for the US alone, about 7,026,856 trees per year.  This was calculated based on an average of 23.6 rolls per person per year and 1,000 rolls per tree.  Apparently, the preference among Americans for the softest, plushest, newest paper is not the norm for the rest of the world, and earlier in the 2000s Greenpiece actually started a campaign to promote the use of recycled toilet paper.  Proponents of recycled paper claim that if everyone in the US traded on role of recycled paper for one of the fancy stuff, we would save approximately 470,000 trees.

    According to National Geographic, approximately 27,000 trees are cut down to produce toilet paper each day worldwide. This would equate to over 9,855,000 trees destroyed annually to make toilet paper globally.
