Today is the start of Rainforest Alliance Week both locally and in cyberspace. As a family that loves nature and lives as green a life as much as we possibly can, I feel compelled to pass that bit of news on to like-minded readers. Come to think of it, the rest of the world -- especially children and families -- would definitely benefit from having the knowledge of what this save the environment effort is all about, too.
This awareness campaign is being orchestrated by the Rainforest Alliance, an organization that -- according to their website -- "Works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior."
Read on to find out how consumers can get in on all the fun and games about a very serious concern.
But, first, watch the funny video below that was just released today by Rainforest Alliance about the "hazards" that await shoppers at the grocery store!
Here are just a few of the many other ways you and your kids can get involved
- Find out where you can buy Rainforest-friendly certified products such as coffee, tea, chocolate, fruit, paper, furniture and other products
- Participate in one or more Rainforest Alliance's special events or promotions this week online or in your local area.
- Follow Rainforest Alliance on Twitter and/or fan on Facebook for additional updates and other ways to take part in a great cause
- Subscribe to Rainforest Alliance's Frog Blog e-letter and they'll let you know when new events or other information about this week is added.
What things have you done or are doing to help save rainforests as well as to do your part for a greener world? I hope you'll share your comments and activities with the rest of us.
