Drink orange juice. Seems like a reasonably easy way to do your part to help save the rainforest and fight global warming doesn't it?
Did you know that on average, an area of rainforest roughly the size of Los Angeles disappears every month due to illegal logging and development of farmland for crops such as soya or palm oil, or for cattle ranching? This destruction of the rainforest accounts for 20% of global warming?
But YOU can help! You can participate in the "Rescue the Rainforest" campaign. Vermont Woods Studios has joined with Tropicana in this effort.
Here's how it works:
- Register for the campaign and creat an account at Tropicana
- Click on Join a Team and select VermontWoodStudios
- Record the code on special edition Tropicana products (no purchase necessary)
- Log in to your Tropicana account
- Enter the code from your product
- For every code you enter, you will help protect 100 square feet of rainforest and
- You'll be entered into a sweepstakes and daily instant win game
- And you will be helping to secure land that could otherwise be sold to loggers and ranchers, land that could be cut down within the next 18 months, rainforest that is immediately endangered
- Read more about the initiative here.
Let's see how many acres we can save. We'll keep you posted on our results.
