Toronto Climate Save and World Wide Vegan Chalking – Toronto will hold its chalktivism event at the Brazilian Consulate starting at 12pm and then at the Royal Ontario Museum from 1pm-2pm.
Please join us on 7/7 (July 7) to raise awareness of the worst deforestation on record this past May 2019. The Brazilian government in conjunction with animal feed companies is turning the Amazon rainforests into meat burgers.
Chalking ideas:
Killing animals is killing the rainforest
Go vegan to reforest the earth

Background:
Mighty Earth, a Washington DC group, released a report called “Still at it” which points to large-scale forest-clearing by Bolivian and Brazilian farmers who trade soybeans with Cargill. Mighty Earth used satellite imaging and supply-chain mapping information from the Stockholm Environment Institute, an environmental think tank, to identify deforestation in Brazil where two American-based food giants, Cargill and Bunge, are the only known agricultural traders.
The group used drones to record the clearing of forests and savannas in areas where Cargill operates silos.
