Given below are some more common causes of deforestation:Used for Urban and Construction Purposes: The cutting down of trees for lumber that is used for building materials, furniture, and paper products. Forests are also cleared in order to accommodate expanding urban areas.To Grow Crops: Forests are also cut down in order to clear land for growing crops.To Create Grazing Land: Forests are cut down in order create land for grazing cattle.Used for Fuel: Trees are cut down in developing countries to be used as firewood or turned into charcoal, which are used for cooking and heating purposes.Some of the other causes of deforestation are: clearing forests for oil and mining exploitation; to make highways and roads; slash and burn farming techniques; wildfires; and acid rain.

SAVE THE RAINFOREST
  • In The HomeRecycle everything you can: newspapers, cans, glass bottles and jars, aluminum foil, motor oil, scrap metal, etc. Investigate local recycling centers that take items your garbage hauler does not. Try to use phosphate-free laundry and dish soaps. Use cold water in the washer whenever possible. Don't use electrical appliances for things you can easily do by hand, like opening cans. /

Re-use brown paper bags to line your trash can instead of plastic liners. Re-use bread bags, butter tubs, etc. Store food in re-usable containers, instead of plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Save wire coat hangers and return them to the dry cleaners. Take unwanted, re-usable items to a charitable organization or thrift shop. Don't leave water running needlessly. Install a water-saving shower head. Set your water heater at 130 degrees. http://www.savetherainforest.org
