The Rainforest Alliance is creating a new ethical economy that provides jobs, improves lives and protects our planet.
- s By creating job opportunities in poor communities while conserving the natural environment.
- By recruiting global businesses to source responsibly produced goods and services.
- By putting the choice to support sustainability in the hands of consumers.
Since 1987, the Rainforest Alliance has helped two million workers lift themselves out of poverty, certified sustainable practices in working forests and farmlands around the world and protected the habitats of wildlife and endangered species, including tigers in Sumatra and great apes in the Congo.
Through the Leapfrog Campaign we plan to…
Protect an additional 100 million acres of forestland
Develop new certification standards
Establish hundreds more alliances with companies
Educate millions of children about their role in global conservation
Engage tens of millions of consumers in making responsible choices
But we need your help.
Government agencies and foundations have already committed to nearly $60 million in grants. But their commitments are contingent on your support -- we can only accept these grants with another $20 million from individuals like you. By investing in the Rainforest Alliance’s new Leapfrog Campaign, you will help us expand to new crops, new communities and new countries. Every dollar you invest will allow us to raise an additional three dollars and will help millions of farmers, foresters, hoteliers, consumers, families and communities make the small changes that will add up to a better, healthier and more sustainable future for us all.
Your support helps us do what we do best -- develop solutions that create jobs, improve lives and protect our Earth.
