ABOUT THE BOREAL FOREST:

An area the size of Manhattan is destroyed every five days as a result of logging for products like lumber, toilet paper­and J. Crew catalogs.  If you care about clean air and water, you care about the Boreal Forest. Stretching from Alaska clear across Canada to the Atlantic Ocean, the Boreal is an astonishing wilderness, one of the largest intact ecosystems in the world. It holds more freshwater than anywhere else on the planet, and plays an essential role in cleaning the air that we breathe and in fighting climate change. It is also habitat to rare species of wolves, bears, and woodland caribou, as well as half of North America's songbirds.  Currently, less than 8% of the Boreal is protected. It is being logged at a rate of two acres a minute, 24 hours a day, much of it to make things like catalogs, junk mail, magazines, newspapers and toilet paper.
