BENEFITING: Rainforest Trust
My name is Riley and I am now 10 years old I live in Los Angeles.
The Rainforest is such a special part of our life and we need to help it survive because right now people are cutting down trees and killing animals which we need to stop. And that's why you're here...if you donate money we will give it directly to people who live in the area who are helping stop these terrible problems and I feel we can do more to help the rainforest and that's why you're here! If we don't stop this terrible cause in 2074, there will not be any more rainforest.
Did you Know...
1.It takes about 250,000 trees to make the paper for all the Sunday newspaper, But if we reclycled all of those papers we'd save 250,000,000 TREES A YEAR!!!!!!
2. You can make one adult fleece jacket out of 25 recycled bottles.
3. It takes about 500 years for a plastic bottle to decompose and breakdown.
4. Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour, and most are just thrown away. Tropical Rainforests cover just 2% of the worlds sufrace yet the are home to 2/3rds of all the species on the plant. More than 20% of the worlds oxygen comes from this area. If a cure for cancer and many other horrible causes is found it will most ceritenly come from Tropical Rainforests. It is estimanted we lose 137 plants, animals, and iscent species every day. That means we're losing 50,000 species a year. It's also people we're losing, there was a esimate of 10 million Native Americans living in the Amazon 5 centuires ago, Today there are less than 200 thousond. If we harvested all the fruits, oil producing, and medical plants. The rainforests has ecomic vaule greater than cutting it down and using the land. All these great things about rainforests, yet we cut them down for Timber. A way to help save glass or plastic bottles is to reuse them for the next day
Another way to help is to Donate or vist Raiforest Trust to help!
