Cocoa causing environmental disaster in West Africa

A new report from Mighty Earth Campaign claims that cocoa growers are causing environmental disaster in West Africa. They found National Parks invaded by cocoa growers who are selling their cocoa to big international companies who try to tell us they care about the environment.  Due to forest destruction Ivory Coast is now down to a few hundreds elephants while its chimpanzees are only hanging on in a few small pockets. At Coffee Plant we believe the best way to challenge this is to use Fairtrade products when they are available.
