can you do to help save the rainforest?
less paper to help save the rainforest! Paper
is made from trees. If you use less paper, fewer trees will be cut down.
Using less paper is easy.
less gasoline and plastic. Gasoline
and plastic are two things that are made from oil. Instead of using gasoline
to drive somewhere in a car, ride your bike, walk, carpool, or take the
bus whenever possible.
Instead of buying
plastic, choose glass containers whenever possible. Reuse the plastic containers and bottles that you already have. If
you have a plastic water bottle, do not throw it out and buy a new one.
Instead, clean it and refill it again and again.
less red meat. One big reason rainforests are being destroyed is
for beef. Millions of acres of rainforest are cut down and burned. The
land is set on fire in order to get rid of the trees. The cleared land
is then turned into grass pastures for cows. Many fast-food hamburgers
in our country are made from beef that comes from burned out rainforests!
