What you can do to help the rainforest
- First, before buying wood or furniture , we must ask what are the tree species used and what is the geographical origin of the wood .
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
