What Rubber Tappers Want

By: Cinda Goldsby

What Is Rubber Tapping?

Rubber tapping is when you cut into a certain kind of tree to get sap for rubber. What happens is, someone cuts diagonal cuts into a Hevea Braziliensis tree. They then put a bucket at the bottom of the tree so the sap can seep into it. They then let it dry and process it to become rubber.

Rubber Tapping Doesn't Hurt The Trees.......

Save The Rainforests!!

We want to preserve the rain forest because it gives us work and jobs and money. We don't hurt the trees at all! The more that the loggers cut down, the less rubber we get! Stop cutting down the trees! We need these jobs to survive.
