we're trashin' it

Greenpeace UK has published a report linking McDonald’s to illegal rainforest destruction and other criminal activity in the Amazon. According to the report, McDonald’s chickens are obtained from a Cargill-owned company and fed on soya Cargill obtains from Amazon rainforest farmers “linked to the use of slave labour, illegal land grabbing, and massive deforestation.”
