    Pretty sure trees are chopped down to grow soya beans and such, as well as other crops. It’s not all about livestock you know.

    Not so fun fact, only a small portion of soy is consumed directly by humans. Most of the world’s soy crop ends up in feed for poultry, pork, cattle and even farmed fish. And unfortunately, the expansion of soy to feed the world’s growing demand for meat often contributes to deforestation and the loss of other valuable ecosystems in Latin America.

    Not a be all and end all solution, but a great way to make a contribution against this problem is using Ecosia instead of Google. The two search engines work in a very similar way but Ecosia uses its income to plant trees - they're doing a lot of good!

    You can search for Ecosia and learn more, but essentially, for every 45(ish) searches, they plant a tree!

    I search a LOT so 45 comes around pretty fast. I think this is one of many many super easy changes to make that can make a bit of difference.
