ysmad Green Tip:

Donate for rainforest protection


Seeing the billions of profit made in the economy - for a big part taken out of nature - it's a shame there is not more returned. Compare the costs for protecting rainforests: 1 acre to buy in Costa Rica (protected long term by respective organizations) is around $800 (in 2008). You can contribute small scale, starting at $1.

Reduce carbon emissions (burning down rainforests accounts for 20%-25% of the world's carbon dioxide emissions*), protect one of the most important carbon sinks of Earth, protect the world's largest reservoir of biodiversity and save things yet unseen for future generations.
All in one! :)
