Save the Rainforest! Buy a tree!

Here's an idea that ought to appeal to everyone. Rainforest Forever is selling trees in the Amazon rainforest. Or, more specifically, what they're selling is the timber rights. By buying up timber rights, you'll gaurantee some section of the rain forest does not get logged.

What you receive is a certificate and GPS coordinates for your tree.

Why should you care? Why should you buy protection for trees? Here's a few of the reasons they offer:

  • The Rainforest Helps Us Breath
  • The Rainforest has been shown to contain medicines that could heal the sick
  • The Rainforest supports a huge abundance of life, and represents great biodiversity
