“Norway has become the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation. The Norwegian parliament pledged that the government’s public procurement policy will become deforestation-free, last month. Norway is a major funder of forest conservation projects worldwide and also supports human rights programmes for forest communities. The Rainforest Foundation Norway has campaigned for a number of years to secure a zero deforestation commitment from the Norwegian government and released a statement saying: “Norway is the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation in its public procurement.” ~ Sadie Levy Gale, Independent

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
