The Resources of the Rainforests

The Rubber Tappers

We do not harm the rainforests.

what we do does not harm the rainforest. All we do is make small diagonal cuts or slashes in the tree and collect the sap that drips out in a cup or bucket.

What we do with the sap

What we do is gather the sap and haul it to a factory. The factory (obviously) turns it into rubber of many uses. One use is that they use it to make rubber bands to hold small things together, like wires. Another use is to make tires for bikes and cars. Because without tires, you wouldn't be able to brake easily! It would also ruin the wheels out faster.


I had made this for a school project. All credit goes to google images and the sites where I found the information.
