The Rainforest Trust is one of our newest partners. Through this partnership, with every cork yoga block that is sold, we are able to protect 2,000 square feet of rainforest.
The Rainforest Trust purchases and protects the most threatened tropical forests, saving endangered wildlife through partnerships and community engagement. Through these highly effective partnerships, they can ensure sustainable results necessary for the long-term protection of tropical ecosystems and the wildlife they hold. Their unique, cost-effective conservation model for protecting endangered species has been implemented successfully for over 30 years.
The Rainforest Trust is committed to providing lasting, on-the-ground protection, which requires the ongoing support and participation of local communities. These communities are engaged through the creation of sustainable economic opportunities for local men and women, including training as fellows, guardians, wildlife monitors and ecotourism guides.
Tropical rainforests affect the daily lives of every person on the planet. Rainforests are one of the most important natural resources left on Earth. They safely store billions of tons of carbon, helping ward off climate change. Tropical forests remain untapped resources for scientific and medical discoveries—a quarter of all medicines are sourced from plants found deep in the rainforests. They are also home to thousands of unique animals that depend on their protection for survival.
