Our Global Impact: Agriculture
The Rainforest Alliance is working to transform conventional agriculture, which is responsible for 70 percent of global deforestation and is the single greatest threat to tropical forests. Our methods protect the environment while supporting decent wages, safe working conditions, and access to housing and healthcare for those who depend on the land for their livelihoods.

I used to dump rubbish everywhere, but we were taught to make compost and keep it all in one place. We were also advised to separate organic from non-organic waste. So I’ll keep on working harder and taking care of the tea bushes.
