Once released, they are on the Planet to stay through the aeons unless willingly removed by human action. That's why they are dubbed 'forever chemicals'.

Around Easter time, companies like Cadbury try to play up their wholesome image of a family-friendly chocolate company. The last thing Cadbury wants the public to know, is the dirty secret behind chocolate Easter eggs: the destruction of precious rainforests.

A study from our partner Mighty Earth shows: The cocoa used in Cadbury chocolate is grown illegally in national parks and protected areas all over the world. In some countries in West Africa, more than 90 percent of protected areas, such ...
