Save the Amazon ~ Donate Now !

I just wanted to share some ways you could help with climate change/the fires in the rain forest right now because it’s something I feel is very relevant to all of us!

I highly recommend you download “Ecosia”, a browser extension and app that uses the profit from searches to plant trees, so you can plant trees for free! www.ecosia.org

Consider making a donation to organizations that work with planting trees or helping out communities around the Amazon Rainforest. Some orgs I recommend:

Reduce beef consumption in general, or go vegan. Not only does cattle contribute largely to global warming, but a lot of the fires in the Amazon Rainforest were started by ranchers to clear land for cattle. Something to consider.

Reduce your paper and wood consumption. Double-check with Rainforest Alliance that what you’re buying is considered rainforest-safe. You can also purchase rainforest-safe products from the alliance’s site.

Spread the word to your friends and family, share these things or just get informed about what’s going on with our planet, and make sure to vote in elections because that matters!

Last but not least you can sign Greenpeace’s petition telling the Brazilian government to save the Amazon rainforest and protect the lands of indigenous and traditional communities: Act GreenPeace

Together we can do anything we put our mind to…
