Our Impact: 1% of our 2023 Net Revenue towards Rainforest Protection

Welcome to La Foresta Orchids, where our commitment to safeguarding the rainforest is unwavering!

Our dedication is evident through our pledge to allocate 1% of our net revenue towards rainforest protection. Our overarching mission is to foster a world that thrives for plants, humanity, and our precious planet.

At La Foresta Orchids, our core belief is that by preserving the rainforest, we can simultaneously nurture the well-being of both plants and the Earth. It's an undeniable fact that tropical rainforests across the world are in dire need of assistance. These lush ecosystems house an astounding 50% of the Earth's plant species and are fundamental in upholding biodiversity.

Our commitment to supporting projects that shield these rainforests plays a vital role in rescuing endangered species, enhancing air quality, and mitigating climate change.

Why We're Engaged:

  • Rainforests serve as the cherished abode for 50% of the world's plant and animal species.
  • They absorb an impressive 6% of the planet's carbon emissions, making them critical to our fight against climate change.
  • A remarkable 25% of medicines trace their origins back to the rainforest.
  • Shockingly, every minute sees the devastation of a staggering fifty acres of rainforest.

We stand shoulder to shoulder with organizations like the Rainforest Trust, renowned for their unwavering commitment to allocating 100% of donations directly to conservation endeavors. Join us in our quest to protect these invaluable rainforests and make a significant impact on the future of our planet. Together, we can be the change-makers our world desperately needs.                                                                                        

The Challenge:  Stop Deforestation

Approximately 18% of the Amazon has been deforested, with a distressing 2.9 million acres of forest in Brazil destroyed in 2022 alone. Within the Brazilian Amazon, 141 million acres of land are government controlled but not yet designated for a particular purpose. Each and every one of these acres—the irreplaceable home of myriad, exquisite species found nowhere else on Earth—could be preserved forever as part of a protected area such as a national park, or could be safeguarded as an Indigenous reserve. Or vast areas could be chain-sawed and burned to the ground for beef or soy. The stakes are huge for all life on Earth.

The Opportunity:  Create Protected Areas and Safeguard Indigenous Territories

Lula’s return as Brazil’s president this year provides an extraordinary second chance to expand protected areas and halt deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. Approximately 29% of the original forest is substantially intact, owned by the government, but currently unprotected—by far the largest area of intact, unprotected tropical rainforest in the world. The window of opportunity is extremely narrow: Lula’s term is four years and it can take several years to create protected areas and safeguard Indigenous territories.

Goals and Objectives:  Save 20 million acres of intact forest

Rainforest Trust’s goal in the Brazilian Amazon is to permanently safeguard 20 million acres of intact forest as new protected areas and Indigenous territories and safely lock up 6 billion metric tons of CO2 equivalents (more than the U.S.’s annual total CO2 emissions).
