Look at this photo... a Haiti transportation bus with a portrait of Haitian actor and comedian Tonton Bicha on the Back of it.

Almost every transport bus and tap-tap in the Haiti transportation system is a unique piece of art. Most of them are hand painted with portraits of famous stars in Haiti and from around the world.

Deforestation in Haiti: A horse loaded with charcoal going to market

Deforestation in Haiti: A horse loaded with charcoal going to market

Here is one of the main causes of deforestation in Haiti: Look at this picture of a horse loaded with charcoal from the countryside going to market.

By the end of the day, these 3 bags of charcoal will make it to a Haitian kitchen. by the end of the week it's gone... Burned to ashes.

Charcoal is Haiti's chief source of fuel and the #1 cause for deforestation and environmental disasters.

As long as Haitians continue to use charcoal for cooking deforestation will continue.
