This forum is about food, that's why I post it here instead of the environmental forum.

Chocolate Could Bring the Forest Back

by Chris Bright

Chocolate lovers of the world can have their cake and save Brazil's endangered Atlantic Rainforest too, according to an article in the November/December issue of World Watch.

In "Chocolate Could Bring the Forest Back", Worldwatch researcher Chris Bright proposes that the cocoa plant, which thrives below the forest canopy in this biodiversity hotspot, could be the key to preserving one of the world's most threatened areas, revitalizing a faltering industry and creating new livelihood opportunities for many of Brazil's poor.

I love organic (vegan / fairtrade) chocolate.

*tears up* But I don't LIKE dark chocolate! If I liked it, this would be wonderful, but I can hardly stand the stuff.
