Rainforest Alliance

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity, encourage sustainability, halt deforestation, and stop environmental destruction.  With programs in over 100 countries, the Rainforest Alliance takes the approach “that the health of the land is inextricably connected to the wellbeing of those who depend on it for their livelihoods.” To these ends, the group fights climate change, promotes responsible eco-tourism, trains farmers in sustainable practices, and much more. Founded in 1987, and based in New York City, the group may be best known for “Rainforest Alliance Certified” products. These items feature their familiar green frog logo to show they have been harvested in a way to protect biodiversity, and also to protect the rights of local peoples.

By championing rainforests, the group saves the orchids growing within them. To help the Rainforest Alliance in their work, join their community, or make a donation. As a non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
