Here's the connection with rainforests and rare habitats:-

  1. One day I will pick up courage and go and ask if I can do a collection at Booths for the Rainforest
  2. At least one in ten food items at both stores contains palm oil (usually labelled hydrogenated fats) - Palm oil plantations cause destruction of the rainforest
  3. Carol singing is a very eco-friendly occupation. 
  4. Both the Coop and Booths score relatively highly as eco-friendly superamrkets go.. The coop is big on Fair Trade goods, Booths stocks up with a lot of produce sourced locally in the North West.
Remember that when you buy "Stuff" a vast amount of waste, some of it toxic, has been made and dumped as a by-product of producing the "stuff" -
