Today, deforestation is causing the rainforests to be depleted at an alarming rate. According to National Geographic, if deforestation continues at its current rate, rainforests could completely vanish within 100 years. The biggest driver of this deforestation is agriculture, weather that might be ranchers in Brazil, or Palm Oil plantations in Indonesia which I will highlight in a future post. There are organizations available that you can donate to in order to help save the rainforest, but the best way to help as a consumer is to avoid purchasing products that are produced from depleted rainforests, such as non-certified sustainable palm oil. Think of everything that is impacted before you buy something!!!! Together we can make a difference in ending deforestation, even from a distance, through our consumer choices, voting, and donations to non-profits.
