Norway becomes first country to ban deforestation
Green (Living) Review
JUNE 12, 2016
Norway has become the first country to stop clear-cutting of trees, a huge step toward curbing global deforestation. It's a pledge Norway made at the U.N. At the rate we are going, the world's rain forests could completely vanish in 100 years. In their pledge last week, Norwegian lawmakers also committed to find a way to source essential products such as palm oil, soy, beef and timber so that they leave little to no impact on their ecosystems.
