Take a breath, thank a rainforest. This World Rainforest Day, take a moment to think about the many ways in which rainforests positively affect our lives. They provide us with food, medicine, climate regulation, and so much more. The benefits of rainforests are innumerable.
Essential to our survival, rainforests are responsible for more than 25% of all Western medicine and house more than 50% of the world’s plant and animal species.

The term upcycling is also known as “creative reuse”. By reusing plastic, upcycling helps reduce the amount of plastic that can end up in the environment and may help us avoid purchasing new plastic products. The more we can refuse single-use plastic and reuse what is already out there, the more sustainable our future will be. Together we can prevent plastic pollution!
