Rainforest Rescue Partnership
Onyx Botanica is pleased to announce our new partnership with Rainforest Rescue charity, donating 1% profits to a very worthy cause.
Rainforest Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally. Their projects re-establish rainforests through planting, maintenance and restoration programs, as well as purchasing and protecting high conservation value rainforest and preserving its biodiversity.
Rainforests are the engine room of evolution, sheltering almost half the global tree species. With over 3 trillion trees on the planet, 1.4 trillion of these are in tropical and subtropical forests. This equates to around 400 trees for every person on the planet! Half of the trees on the planet have been lost since humans started to clear forests. With land everywhere under increasing pressure, around 15 billion trees are chopped or burned down every year.
35 of the properties saved by Rainforest Rescue can be found in The Daintree in Queensland.
The Daintree is Australia’s LARGEST rainforest, arguably the most biodiverse environment on the planet. Continuously evolving and growing, living and breathing for 180 MILLION YEARS, the Daintree is now under threat of being severely degraded. One of the most significant regional ecosystems in the world, the Daintree has international conservation significance. There are some 180 properties that Rainforest Rescue intends to buy back, replant and protect by 2040.We are proud to become part of a committed team of individuals who collectively are helping to preserve some of the most biodiverse habitats and the species that live within them on this planet.
By purchasing our products, you will help us to support Rainforest Rescue through their 1% profits to Rainforest Rescue campaign.
