Dear Hewlett-Packard Co.,

You should be ashamed of yourselves!

I just purchased an HP Inkjet Print Cartridge, model HP 51629A.

I did not realize that it was a single-use product until I opened the
package. You should never produce a single use product when a multiple use
product can be made. In fact, previous inkjet cartridges I have bought
have all been multiple use until this one. In the past I have not bought a
new replacement cartridge every time the current one runs out of ink
because I like to refill my cartridge several times before buying a new one.

Also, too much excess packaging was used in the packaging of the new
cartridge I just purchased. I am including the box for you to see exactly
which packaging was used. At least one-half of the box was dead air space.

Hewlett-Packard has a good reputation for producing good products.
Previous multiple use cartridges and packaging was good for the environment
and good for Hewlett-Packard. It indicated you were being a responsible
company with concern for our shared quality of life.

My latest purchase seems to indicate that Hewlett-Packard is on a downward
spiral. Please make the appropriate changes needed to recapture your good
name and to set the standard of excellence that is expected of your company
and for which other companies strive to emulate.

Yours truly,

Drusha Mayhue

Help Protect America's Heritage Forests at

Dear Friend,

America's last untouched scenic wilderness forests need your help!!

At stake are 60 million acres, just 30 percent of the National Forest
system -- still wild and roadless but unprotected from logging,
mining and road building. These Heritage Forests provide Americans
with outstanding recreational opportunities, some of our most
important fish and wildlife habitat, and clean drinking water.

On Wednesday, over 700 religious, scientific, and conservation
leaders released a public letter to Vice President Gore, urging him
to take advantage of an "unprecedented opportunity to leave a legacy
of Heritage Forests for future generations...[and] adopt a final
policy... that forever protects America's Heritage Forests."

It was one year ago that President Clinton promised "...the Forest
Service is developing a scientifically based policy for managing
roadless areas in our national forests. These last remaining wild
areas are precious to millions of Americans and key to protecting
clean water and abundant wildlife habitat, and providing recreation

A year since President Clinton promised to protect America's last
scenic wild forests, they remain unprotected. Our first opportunity
will come when the Administration announces an 18-month road building
moratorium in some of our National Forests. Watch for our email
alerting you when the announcement is made, we hope in December.
We'll provide you an easy way to contact key decision makers to
voice your support for protection of America's Heritage Forests.

Throughout 1999, Americans for Heritage Forests will keep you updated
on the progress of our campaign and provide timely alerts so that you
can make your voice heard with decision makers.

I promise we won't ask you for money. Your participation is free.

Please join our efforts by visiting our website,
And invite your friends, family and colleagues to join as well.

Thank you. The forests and our children will be forever indebted.
