It is no secret that forest destruction sits high on the human pyramid of vacuous venality, especially when it comes to rainforests. In my lifetime thus far, forests have been falling at such an alarming rate that according to the @rainforestalliance
each minute, 85 acres are destroyed completely. There are a myriad of completely selfish reasons we should protect the rainforest, in fact, I've shared 6 of the most basic ones on my blog today (via the link in my profile).
While the solutions to the problems faced by deforestation across the globe are complex, there is one super simple way you can adjust your purchases slightly to help. When you're shopping for your food, beauty products and so on, just look for the @rainforestalliance
seal and buy that instead of your usual. It will ensure the purchase you make, is at least considering the health of the rainforest and the rights of their workers in the process of producing their product. I've shared 10 simple spots you can make these adjustments as well as brands which I personally support or know of that proudly hold this seal.
