Film Tip - ''Carving Up the Congo''

Forest destruction is one of the biggest environmental disasters on the planet. Ancient trees, several hundreds of years old are lost forever and with it millions of species, while many still undiscovered. Also the local community is suffering, like here in the Democratic Republic of congo, which is home to the second largest rainforest in the world. Most of the timber ends up on the european market, perhaps wasted on construction places or as toilet paper.

Enjoy this well made film and please buy recycling paper or at least products with the FSC label, to support sustainable harvested forests.
