Save a chunk of rainforest every day, free and effortlessly!

July 27, 2010

With a simple click, you can save a square meter of rainforest every day

Most of us don’t think about which website opens when we start our internet browser every day; it’s usually Facebook, MSN or something similar.  But we can use our first click of the day to help preserve the planet’s rainforests.

Here’s how: make the Rainforest Site, www.therainforestsite.com, the home page you start from every day.  Then just click the box “Click here to give – it’s FREE”.  And with that simple action, you’ve preserved just over a square meter of the world’s rainforests, the lungs of the planet that can absorb back some of the CO2 ‘exhaled’ by our burning of fossil fuels.

It’s not much, but those square meters add up – over 100,000 people click the site every day, and nearly 30,000 hectares have been preserved so far.

The land is paid for by sponsors who advertise on the Rainforest Site.  If you visit, you’ll also see similar sites in support of breast cancer, hunger, literacy and more – all causes you can support with the simple click of a mouse.

You can make The Rainforest Site your home page by going to it, then clicking Tools – Internet Options – General – Use current.
