Align with love and good things happen. When you purchase from Sarah Belle, you are aligning with love and a path of service to our planet. Through our Align with Love program, we donate a percent of proceeds from every purchase to the Rainforest Foundation US. It is important to us to be good stewards of our planet and all the life it supports. Through thoughtful action, we can make a difference.
The Rainforest Foundation has a mission to protect the rainforests of Central and South America by working with the indigenous communities that call them home. They work on-the-ground to secure land rights for indigenous people. They strengthen indigenous land security and train indigenous communities to use technology to protect their forests. By investing directly in indigenous communities, they connect people who are deeply motivated to conserve their ancestral lands with the tools, training, and resources necessary to protect their rainforests.
Excerpt from the Rainforest Foundation website:
Human life depends on our rainforests. They are vital to the stability of our climate. Rainforests are carbon sinks that surpass our most sophisticated technology; they absorb 30% of the world’s CO2 emissions each year.
Rainforests are also home to more than half of the world’s animal and plant species. They are a constant source of life-saving medicines. Millions of indigenous peoples depend on the forest for their survival, including our planet’s last uncontacted cultures.
Despite rainforests importance, they are disappearing. Today, we have lost more than half of earth’s original rainforests—every year we lose an area of tropical forest the size of New York State.
But together we are making a difference. To date, we have protected more than 33 million acres of rainforest. Indigenous communities of the rainforest are fighting back, holding the front line for all of us. With your support, Indigenous communities can protect the forests we all depend on for generations to come.
