  • No, we should not stop buying avocados to reduce the amount of illegal deforestation in Mexico.

    No, we should not stop buying avocados to reduce the amount of illegal deforestation in Mexico. Producers should be able to produce avocados without doing anything illegal. If illegal action has taken place, maybe we should looking at purchasing avocados from other countries. There are other countries that produce avocados.

  • No, the responsibility lies with those doing the deforestation

    No, we should not stop buying avocados to reduce the amount of illegal deforestation in Mexico. While I believe everyone should, within reason, research the origin of the products they use and make ethical purchasing decisions, I believe that the greatest burden lies on the companies who produce and harvest the avocados to do so ethically.

  • We should buy more locally grown avocados.

    I do not believe that we should stop buying avocados in an attempt to reduce the amount of illegal deforestation in Mexico. Avocados are a great source of important healthy fats, oils and nutrients that we should have in our diets. Instead, we should look to more locally grown and sustainable sources.

  • Alternatives are available for avocados

    The illegal deforestation in Mexico is not necessary to meet demand for avocados. Frequent stories and studies on the health benefits of avocados may have increased demand for the product, but there are currently many other options for growing the fruit in an economical way that does not harm the environment.
