Tropical rain forests have declined from 14% of the Earth land to just 6%. They could be lost entirely within a century. Did you know what you buy can help determine their fate? Many products are made using resources from deforested areas, including soy beans, beef, and toilet paper — and the more we buy them the more we indirectly contribute to rain forest loss. Always be sure that you know what you’re buying supports your values.
