What you can do to help the rainforest

  1. First, before buying wood or furniture , we must ask what are the tree species used and what is the geographical origin of the wood .
  2. Then we can prioritize the purchase of products made ​​from local wood , promote products made with the species growing in our region such as oak , pine, olive etc.
  3. You can also decide to join associations or organization such as WWF or "zero deforestation" or " Arutam " and carry with them information campaigns or actions to present to the people the problem of Amazonian deforestation.
  4. Also reducing our consumption of paper and disposable products such as napkins , cups and paper plates , it will reduce paper pulp requirements and therefore cuts of wood. One can also buy products made ​​with recycled paper.

It may require the use or placing on the market of timber or FSC certified paper
