Rainforests are found all over the world, even in Canada! They are essential to our environment for many, many reasons but if you want to focus on just one… they provide 20% of the oxygen on earth. That sort of makes you think twice about allowing groups that destroy the forests for no real good reason. The animals that live there, the chemicals in our air that the trees are able to absorb, and so much more, are all a win-win for all of us. The day was founded in 2017 by “Rainforest Partnership” in Austin, Texas.
How to celebrate – Visit a rainforest. Research all the rainforests of the world. Research all the products that come from a rainforest.
