Combat Rainforest Deforestation
Rainforests cover around 6% of our planet, they are important for many reasons. They are home to an enormous amount of biodiversity, including many unique plants and animals that can't be found anywhere else on Earth. They also play a vital role in maintaining our planet's health, by regulating the climate and providing fresh water to millions of people around the world.
Sadly, rainforests are under threat from deforestation and habitat loss. Every year, huge amounts of rainforest are destroyed, often to make way for cattle ranching or palm oil plantations. This is having a devastating impact on our planet, contributing to climate change and putting even more pressure on already endangered species.
The University of Maryland estimates that we lost around 11.1 million hectares of forest in tropical areas during 2021. That’s the equivalent of 20.8 million football pitches!
But there is hope. We can all play a part in protecting rainforests by supporting rainforest conservation efforts, and by making more sustainable choices in our daily lives. If we act now, we can save the rainforest and ensure a future for our planet. Here are some ways you can help protect rainforests and save our planet:
- Support rainforest conservation efforts. This can be done by donating to charities or organisations working to protect rainforests, or by buying products from companies that have sustainable rainforest policies.
- Reduce your consumption of products that come from rainforests. This includes things like palm oil, beef, timber and coffee. Pay attention to labels and look for products that are certified as being sourced sustainably.
- Educate yourself and others about the importance of rainforests and the threats they face. The more people who are aware of the issue, the more likely we are to see positive change.
- Buy or sell on Doji. Did you know that every purchase made on Doji directly contributes to the protection of 5 trees in the rainforest. Thanks to our partnership with OneTribe, our users are helping combat deforestation one phone or tablet at a time! Our tech products are a major cause of deforestation, by supporting our circular economy you’re reducing the impact this industry has on our planet.
If we all work together, we can protect rainforests and save our planet. Let's make a difference today.
