Amazon rainforest plots being sold via Facebook – Luke Pollard responds

Luke Pollard MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Secretary, commenting on the BBC investigation into Amazon rainforest plots being sold via Facebook said:

“The Amazon is our planet’s green lung and it’s vital we protect it from destruction. Social media companies have a moral duty to ensure their operations are not enabling deforestation and illegal sales of forest.

“The Government must urgently act to make sure that UK companies do not trade on the back of rainforest destruction.”
