Every day, the Brazilian Amazon and the last Indonesian rainforests are being destroyed. Rivers and lakes in China and Mexico are polluted and fish are poisoned. Do you know why?
The Amazon is being destroyed to clear the way for cattle ranching: millions of forest hectares have been clear-cut and burned to make room for cattle. Leather from these cattle is used to make our shoes, bags and belts.
The habitat of the last Sumatran tigers is being transformed into low-cost packaging that ends up in the bin once used.
In countries such as China, Mexico and Indonesia, hazardous chemicals are being released into our precious waterways in order to make the clothes we wear.
