Safe the rainforest, safe our climate.
Because there are so many problems in the world, we decided to do our part to help the world to become a better place. Our New Year’s resolution was to raise money for good causes. Every third month we raise money for a different organisation, that helps to change the world. This month we would like to support an organisation called „Rainforest Trust “. From every order that you place on our website we donate 1€ to the organisation. Just 8€ donated towards Rainforest Trust’s Amazon project in Peru can protect 5 acres and approximately 931 metric tons of CO2 equivalents.
Unfortunately, every day precious acres of rainforest are lost forever. Highly threatened species lose their habitat. Communities lose their forest livelihoods. Water sources and weather systems are disrupted. The planet is impacted when stored carbon is released by deforestation and degradation. Tropical deforestation accounts for up to 15% of net global carbon emissions each year!!! For that to change, we partnered up with Rainforest Trust.
Who is „Rainforest Trust “?
Rainforest Trust is a non-profit organisation that exists for over 30 years now and that has already achieved incredible thing. They already saved 47.000km2 of Rainforest (which is more than the size of Switzerland!) and managed to save millions of endangered animals. In addition, the organization has also saved the habitat of thousands of indigenous residents and helped to prevent hundreds of water springs, which are essential for the plants and animals, from getting polluted.
How do they protect the forest and the animals?
The organization works with local experts to identify the most endangered areas. The organization then buys these areas to protect them. In cooperation with the indigenous population, which usually helps the organization, the flora and fauna can recover again. This has already saved some species from extinction and many millions of tons of Co2 have been saved from being released into the air.
