Stop Poison Poultry

The Soil Association have launched a new report and campaign. “[In the UK] we farm a billion birds each year. Almost all of them are housed in industrial units and fed a diet of imported soya. This soya is sourced from Latin America, primarily Brazil, where it is grown using toxic pesticides. In recent decades, Brazil has become the global epicentre of both soya production and pesticide use, and scientists are now sounding the alarm.

People expect the food on supermarket shelves to be free from environmental harm. Yet bees, fish, aquatic organisms, macaws, tapirs, birds of prey and bats are among the wild animals being put at risk.”
