Thousands of mass fires, partly started by farmers to clear land for new fields and live stock, are currently destroying large parts of the Amazon Rainforest. At the moment the fires are still responsible for 50 football fields worth of deforestation per minute!
The Amazon rainforest is home to thousands of animal and plant species. Due to the fires, the rainforest went from being a home to a place of life threatening danger and death. If we continue to allow the rainforest to wither and die, we would loose all that biodiversity and wiping out an entire eco system at the same time, which would lead to huge negative effects on earth.
The Amazon rainforest is vital for our life. It is not only home to millions of species but as well protects soil from erosion, produces oxygen, stores carbon dioxide and helps to control the climate. It's also vital for us to live as it provides the foundation of many medicines and purifies the air we breathe.
LET'S ACT NOW.
Since the fires started this year, 100.000(!) ha of rainforest have been destroyed every single day. If we not gonna do something about it the world won't be the same for our children and grand children. The animals who currently roam the Amazon Rainforest will be gone forever.
If we wanna keep the rainforest alive, we must take action now! Support the reforestation and plant your tree(s) today by purchasing one of our 4Amazonia bracelets!

Trees help to clean our air, filter our water and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's biodiversity. They absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
