Established furniture companies have been manufacturing their wooden items, surprisingly via legal means, from forests. As to how they get these permits, we do not know. But, one thing’s for sure, they've taken a big cut on probably the biggest forests on the earth and right under our noses!
The other unfortunate thing is that some of the people who should be the key caretakers of the earth allow them to happen. Given our position, it is frustrating to be in a stand where you can do nothing but sit down and wait for graver things to happen. All is not lost, however.
People must remember than even in small ways they can put a halt to the continuing destruction of the earth. If everyone unites to support the green movement, we might just stop these monsters from profiting from our forests. Remember, it is not only unto them that the earth has been entrusted, but to all others, as well.
Probably, stopping deforestation or reversing an already damaged land is one of the hardest things to do. In reality, one has to be powerful enough to get in control of the situation. However, if we render an ample amount of support to the movements that fight against deforestation and believe in the restoration of the earth, we can go hand in hand with nature.
Try picturing this out: if each individual would contribute even a small effort, there would be bigger possibilities that the earth will be saved. No matter how small your labors may be, they would surely mean a lot in the restoration of our disturbed natural resources.
