Those infamous KFC chicken buckets are destroying the rainforest. At least, that's what Greenpeace International is claiming.

The organization has just come out with a new report. In it they claim the fried chicken giant has been using wood harvested from Indonesia's rainforest to make the paper in its signature chicken buckets.

The report does not mention the United States, but says the wood was found in buckets sold in Indonesia, the U.K. and China.

Greenpeace supporters have been holding protests around the world outside several "Yum!" headquarters. "Yum!" is KFC's parent company.
